Ok...

I would like you to CLEARLY explain what constitutes permission.

As an ISP and a reseller of several auDA accredited registries, we look
after the domains of many of our customers.
Most of our customers rely completely on us for all their domain
management, including renewal and so on.

I have no yet transferred any from one registry to another.. But will be
moving 'dozens' soon.

Permission, from my perspective, will be an email to all of our
customers we host for, telling them we are transferring their domain(s)
that we manage for them from one registry to another... And if they
disagree, to contact us before the nominated date (14 days). 

As we have been given the management role of those to look after them, I
already consider us to have implicit permission, but I thought that they
should be informed and given a 'opt out'.

Does auDA see any problems with this?

...Skeeve

Hi Marco,

Yes, auDA is telling resellers that they require a registrants consent
to move from one registrar to another. There are various reasons for
this including the fact that the registrant actually has a contract with
the registrar and must abide by their terms and conditions. Because of
that a change of registrar has to be at the choice of the registrant nor
the reseller.

One click with all the domains you have ever regisered!.

not necessary 1600 times!.

he made a mistake and paid the punchment!,

it happens, move on people?.

I keep wondering on the choice of resellers which we manage
and look after domains for our customers (which we worked hard to
obtain), having to take permissions to make thing more cost effective or
more managable for them (our clients), to be able to move our domains
from one registrar to the other!.

Is auDA is basicly telling us as resellers, we have to tell our clients
with our choice of registrar (supplier).

This system is questionble????!!!!!.

Two months not being able to transfer domain to itself without jumping
through hoops   is as good a punishment as any. that said, seen as they
are
an auDA accredited registrar this should be treated as a first of three
strikes.

Prohibited DDNS (for a period of 60 days) from transferring any domain
name from another registrar to itself unless it provides auDA with a
copy of the relevant authorisation, and auDA provides its consent.
