RSP Transition Plan to Uniregistry

Last updated: 31 July 2019

Summary

ICM Registry is pleased to announce it will soon be migrating its Registry Service Provider (“RSP”) to the Uniregistry platform for the following top level domains (TLDs):

  • .adult
  • .porn
  • .sex
  • .xxx

The five phases of the transition plan are detailed below. It should be noted that all dates remain preliminary at this stage and will be confirmed later this month (August) when the ICANN consent process is expected to complete.

The ICM and Uniregistry team very much look forward to keeping you updated every step of the way via email and this webpage – so do check in regularly.

  2. Registrars will be enabled to setup an EPP testbed and manage their contact information.
  3. Uniregistry will work with all registrars, prior to the start of each TLD’s transition, with details on the actions to be performed.

Note: All billing activities will remain with ICM Registry.
