EnCirca Tapped to Handle Bulk Transfers for DomRaider Registrar

Domain Owners Should File Claims Now

EnCirca has been chosen by ICANN to handle the bulk transfers for the terminated DomRaider registrar.

We anticipate that many domains will remain unclaimed due to bounced emails or inoperable proxy services.  Locating rightful owners will be problematic since the data escrow is often devoid of any identifying ownership information.

To mitigate this issue and to help ensure domains are released to their rightful owners, EnCirca has created a special claims process for affected domain name owners at https://www.encirca.com/transfer-claims/.  DomRaider registrants can use this form to upload proof of domain ownership, such as credit card statements and order confirmations.

Expect to Renew Your Domains at EnCirca. 

Bulk transfers do not normally involve a renewal or change of the expiration date.  However, due to unpaid registry fees by DomRaider, registries may be processing forced renewals of the domains after the bulk transfer. Because of this, domain name owners may be required to pay for a renewal or a restore for their names.  Some suspended domains may require more than one year of payment to be claimed.

Domain Owners Should Act Quickly to Claim Their Names.  

Some domain owners may have a limited time window to claim their names as some domains are already in the post-expiration processing cycle and may be deleted within 30 days after expiration.  Following deletion, names then enter the 30-day Redemption Grace Period before being dropped and released by the registry for re-registration. 

In addition, the forced registry renewals may trigger post-expiration processing described above.
