Below is a recommendation crafted out as a "suggested" middle ground and it
is intended to replace both the guaranteed recovery period proposal
suggested by James and Alan's proposal are darkening the domain.
In this version, there is not a complete darkening of the domain, but the
DNS resolution path is expected to be interrupted (redirection). Where the
guaranteed recovery period occurs during the 45 day grace period is now at
the discretion of the Registrar - this should minimize (or hopefully
eliminate) impact to existing business models. If this doesn't get the
attention of a registrant that has gone awol, then I really don't know what
cost effective/reasonable measure could.
This also allows Registrars to charge a premium for renewals after expiry
but prior to RGP, but as I read the rest of the recommendations, that
knowledge would be made explicitly available to the registrant prior to
For at least 8 concurrent days, at some point following expiration, the
original DNS resolution path of the RAE, at the time of expiration, must be
interrupted, and the domain must be renewable by the RAE until the end of
This 8-day period may occur at any time following expiration.
Notwithstanding, the registrar may delete the domain at any time during the
Auto-renew grace period.
Is this something that might work for both sides here?
