Escrow Services by DENIC

Escrow Service for Registries

As a registry operator you are required to make daily transfers of domain name registration data to a reputable escrow agent.

Registry data escrow ensures that a copy of the gTLD registration information held by a registry operator is protected, secure and held by an independent third party. Without this a critical situation might arise for domain owners and end users should a backend registry operator no longer be able to provide support.

For detailed information please refer to Specification 2 Data Escrow Requirements of the ICANN Registry Agreement.

Escrow Service for Registrars

As an ICANN-accredited registrar, your obligations include to protect domain name data in a secure escrow environment as required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to help control and manage the Internet’s naming system.

If a situation occurs which leads to an ICANN-accredited registrar becoming unable to provide or fulfil its services, it can create a potentially disastrous situation where support is required for the domain name ownership. This risk can be mitigated by depositing critical domain name data in an escrow agreement.

For detailed information please refer to section 3.6 Data Escrow of the ICANN registrar accreditation agreement.
