auDA CONSUMER ALERT

 

NetRegister letter contains incorrect information  

 

Registrants of com.au domain names may have recently received a letter
from "NetRegister" about Internet Name Group (ING) going out of
business. This letter contains statements that are inaccurate and may
mislead registrants.

 

"NetRegister" is a business name registered to Internet Registry Pty
Ltd. This company has been the subject of a previous auDA Consumer Alert
(see http://www.auda.org.au/about/news/2002070802.html) 

 

Neither "NetRegister" nor Internet Registry Pty Ltd have any connection
whatsoever with auDA accredited registrar NetRegistry Pty Ltd.

 

In auDA's view, the "NetRegister" letter may mislead registrants in
various ways, including by implying that ING was a registrar and that
many domain names have already expired or are about to.

 

In particular, auDA is concerned that the letter implies that
registrants are in danger of losing their domain name. This is NOT TRUE.

 

1. If registrants were not customers of ING

 

The information contained in the "NetRegister" letter is of no relevance
and should be discarded.

 

2. If registrants were customers of ING

 

These registrants should read "Internet Name Group - Information for
Domain Name Registrants" on auDA's website at
http://www.auda.org.au/about/news/2002082102.html
