Registrar Data Escrow Program
Registrars are required by their Registrar Accreditation Agreements (Section 3.6 of the 2009 RAA and 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 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.
As of 23 October 2019, ICANN is not seeking additional data escrow applicants. An up-to-date list of designated and approved Registrar DEAs is provided below:
