As discussed during our last meeting, here is a proposal that may
satisfy the needs of registrars while still meeting the "blackout"
requirement that many users feel is needed.
Note that I personally am still not accepting the 10-day period
proposed by James, but I am interested in trying to close the other
differences that we have and perhaps this proposal will help move us
in the right direction.
I have thought about this proposal a fair amount since our meeting,
and what follows is a bit different from what I proposed then. This
difference, I believe, will allow it to be acceptable to all without
the need for any exceptions. For brevity, I am using the term
"blackout" to refer to the redirection or unavailability of port 80
traffic, and the lack of any response on all other ports.
The domain name will be renewable by the RAE for a period of no less
than 10 full days after expiration, but in all cases for at least 8
full days after the domain name is blacked out. This notwithstanding,
the Registrar may Delete the name at any time after expiration and
prior to renewal by the RAE.
- A registrar that blacks out the domain soon after expiration must
provide only 10 days.
- A registrar who chooses to give 30 days grace before blackout must
provide 38 days total.
- A registrar who chooses to give a registrant 6 months grace (for
whatever reason) can do so, but they must still blackout the name
prior to making it no longer renewable by the RAE.
- A registrar who wants to delete the name at any time once it has
expired and has not been renewed by the RAE may do so without notice
or delete. It will then go into the 30 day RGP. This will be true
during the 45 day ARGP or during the period that follows (assuming
the registrar has accepted the registry renewal but has still not had
the RAE renew his/her contract with the registrar.
I look forward to hearing comments on this.
