Re: [gnso-pednr-dt] FW: Request for clarification - RySG comment on PEDNR Proposed Final Report
After reading the RySG comment, I now see that at least part of the problem is our use of the term "redemption" to apply to both the RGP and for "renewals" that happen during the auto-renew grace period. Indeed, the very name of the PDP used this terminology from the start. One of the suggestions that I am making on the overall report is to use "renewal" for the period preceding a formal delete.

MaherSubject: Request for clarification - RySG comment on PEDNR Proposed Final ReportDear David,The Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (PEDNR) Working Group has started to review the comments received as part of the public comment forum on its proposed Final Report. It would like to ask a clarification of the RySG on the comment below as, following review of the relevant section, the WG does not understand the RySG statement as it considers that section sufficiently clear. I would appreciate if you could provide me with any additional information you think might be helpful for the WG to understand the RySG's point of view on this particular section.Thanks, Marika Section 7. Deliberations of the Working Group"Charter Question 1: Whether adequate opportunity exists for registrants to redeem their expired domain names"The report states the following:" In the current situation, the registrar is generally immediately charged by the registry for the auto-renewal following expiration; those costs are recovered from the registrant if it redeems the registration or reimbursed if the registration is deleted during the Auto-Renew Grace Period. Some suggested that an option would be to review this practice and explore whether the registrycould absorb the costs, or whether another model could be explored. Others suggested that for registrars that do not delete the name early, a renewal grace period should always be offered to registrants."RySG comment:This statement implies that if the registration is deleted during the Auto-Renew Grace Period the registrar isabsorbing the extra costs from the auto-renewal charge following expiration. This should be clarified, because the registrar either (a) never charges the registrant in the first place, or (b) is reimbursed by the registry if the registrar deletes the domain during Auto-renew Grace Period and reimburses the registrant.
