GoDaddy 寄來的信,ICANN Transfer Policy Changes

剛剛回到台北,就收到 GoDaddy 寄來的 notice… (ICANN Transfer Policy Changes)

Important Notice Regarding your Domain(s)

Dear Valued Go Daddy Customer,

On November 12, 2004, ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, put in place its new transfer policy for all accredited domain name service providers.

The previous ICANN policy allowed us to deny requests to transfer your domain names to another registrar unless you explicitly confirmed to us your intent to transfer. The new ICANN policy removes that protection. When we receive a request to transfer your domain name to a new registrar, we will still attempt to contact you to confirm that you authorized the request. However, if you do not respond, or are not able to respond within 5 days, your domain name WILL be transferred.

Rest assured, IT IS UNLIKELY that this will happen. Your domains have NOT been transferred.

Nonetheless, with this change in mind, we are recommending that all Go Daddy domain customers visit and “lock” their domain name(s). Locking your domain(s) is free and prevents unauthorized changes to contacts and name servers. Most importantly, it prevents the domain name from being transferred to another registrar without your knowledge. You may lock or unlock your domain at any time by revisiting your account. It takes only a minute, and it WILL protect your domains.

To login and lock your domains, click here:

If you have multiple domains, we’ve made it easy: Just click the blue, “Lock All Domains” button, and the click “OK” to confirm.

After your changes have been submitted, there will be a short duration while your request is pending update. During this period, details of the domain(s) will be temporarily unavailable.

If you have any questions please email us at or call our customer support line at (480) 505-8899.

Again, this email is simply a notification of a change in ICANN policy. Your domains have NOT been transferred, and IT IS UNLIKELY that they will be. Locking your domains will assure that they won’t.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely, Domain Support

可以預見不久的將來,會有超級大公司的 Domain Name 被拔走,然後控告 ICANN
