Escrow Services by DENIC
Escrow Service for Registries
As a registry operator you are required to create a daily backup of the domain name registration data you are managing and to transfer it to a reputable escrow agent.
Registry data escrow ensures that a copy of the gTLD registration information held by a registry operator is safely held in escrow 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 its support and data thus not be accessible any more.
For detailed information please refer to Specification 2 "Data Escrow Requirements" of the ICANN Registry Agreement.
For information on the contractual agreement between the registry and DENIC, please refer to the relevant template.
Escrow Service for Registrars(Registrar Data Escrow)
As an ICANN-accredited registrar, your obligations include protecting domain name data by depositing them in a secure escrow environment as required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in order to ensure the safe administration of the Internet’s naming system.
This data held in escrow is of great value in the event that an ICANN-accredited registrar becomes unable to fulfil its services. In that case, the escrowed data will provide a basis to verify the ownership in a domain name.
For detailed information, please refer to section 3.6 Data Escrow of the ICANN registrar accreditation agreement.
