GoDaddy.com® has announced that it will take over the entire portfolio of more than 850,000 generic top-level domain (gTLD) names held by RegisterFly.ICANN’s understands that GoDaddy.com and the gTLD registries holding RegisterFly names have worked out the mechanics for restoring, renewing, and redeeming names intending that no names will be inadvertently dropped. According to the terms of the transfer agreement, RegisterFly domain names and the data underlying the available proxy service will also be transferred. People with domain names registered with RegisterFly can contact GoDaddy.com at 480-366-3500 with any questions about the transfer. GoDaddy.com also has a question and answer sheet available at http://www.godaddy.com/welcomeregisterfly

The GoDaddy.com agreement is a direct and automatic transfer to a competent and experienced customer service oriented organization. This is a commercial arrangement. The bulk transfer process that ICANN was administering has been discontinued.


Within the next few days, you should be receiving an email from GoDaddy regarding how to log in to your account, as well as manage your domains. In the meantime, please feel free to check at GoDaddy.com for any developments.

ICANN understands the frustration the RegisterFly situation has caused and appreciates registrants’ patience.
