Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery Working Group Proposed Final Report

Open: 21 February 2011
Closed: 7 April 2011 Extended to 22 April 2011

Explanation/Background: The GNSO Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (PEDNR) Policy Development Process Working Group was tasked to address questions in relation to what extent registrants should be able to renew their domain names after they expire. At issue is whether the current policies of registrars on the renewal, transfer and deletion of expired domain names are adequate. Following review of the comments received on its Initial Report and further deliberations, the Working Group now presents its Proposed Final Report, which contains fourteen (14) recommendations to address the five charter questions it was assigned. Before finalizing its report and submitting it to the GNSO Council for its consideration, the Working Group is asking for your input on the proposed Final Report, especially the proposed recommendations. The public comment forum will be open for 45 days (until 7 April 2011).

Staff member responsible: Marika Konings
