The company RegisterFly.comâ„¢ was recently involved in a bit of a scandal where the CEO Kevin Medina was ousted by two other board members. The case was taken to court and Medina won, and was able to rejoin control of the company as the CEO. At that time apparently, they were also given time to “clean up their act” by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) which holds control of domain names.
It was then announced in a shocking announcement that RegisterFly.com was to lose their accreditation. This is an announcement that will be sure to shake up the affiliate marketing industry because many of us have domains with RegisterFly.com. The official announcement on ICANN’s website states that the domain company RegisterFly has lost their accreditation, and “Effective immediately ICANN has terminated RegisterFly’s right to use the ICANN Accredited Registrar logo on its website.”
This truly is shocking news, and makes me wonder what is going to happen with the domains that many of us have registered at the company.
