· When a domain name is locked pursuant to a pending UDRP, but passes
its expiration date (without renewal), do you allow the domain name to
expire? Or do you wait until the UDRP proceeding and 15 day "wait
period" are complete?
I don't know if this is a "trick question", but this subject is covered
in the Expired Domain Deletion Policy, which is integrated into the
Registrar Accreditation Agreement, and which prescribes action in this
188.8.131.52 In the event that a domain which is the subject of a UDRP
dispute is deleted or expires during the course of the dispute, the
complainant in the UDRP dispute will have the option to renew or restore
the name under the same commercial terms as the registrant. If the
complainant renews or restores the name, the name will be placed in
Registrar HOLD and Registrar LOCK status, the WHOIS contact information
for the registrant will be removed, and the WHOIS entry will indicate
that the name is subject to dispute. If the complaint is terminated, or
the UDRP dispute finds against the complainant, the name will be deleted
within 45 days. The registrant retains the right under the existing
redemption grace period provisions to recover the name at any time
during the Redemption Grace Period, and retains the right to renew the
name before it is deleted.
The question boils down to "Do you comply with the Registrar
Accreditation Agreement?" and apparently seeks an admission that the
registrar does not.
Procedure in the event of domain expiration during a UDRP is well
defined, not discretionary, and not within the scope of this group.
