Registrar Data Escrow Program
Registrars are required by their Registrar Accreditation Agreements (Section 3.6 of the 2013 RAA) to escrow certain registration data with an ICANN-approved Registrar Data Escrow Agent (DEA) pursuant to the Registrar Data Escrow (RDE) program as defined by the Registrar Data Escrow Specifications (RDE Specifications) [PDF, 30 KB]. All registrars and registrar DEAs must comply with the terms of the RDE Specifications. Registrars may use the DEA(s) designated by ICANN at no charge, or use a DEA approved by both ICANN and the registrar (per Section 3.3.1 of the RDE Specifications, a Third Party Provider or TPP), at the registrar's expense.
Registrars wishing to change their DEA should follow the Registrar Data Escrow Agent Change process.
News: As of 17 July 2023, DENIC Services GmbH & Co. KG is the sole ICANN-designated DEA and NCC Group Software Resilience (NA) LLC is no longer accepting new registrars. As of 1 November 2024, NCC Group Software Resilience (NA) LLC will no longer provide registrar data escrow services. More details on the transition process can be found here.
