ICANN has sent letters with non-renewal notices to three registars – South America Domains (doing business as, Simply Named Inc. (, and Tahoe Domains Inc.

According to the letters, South American Domains lost accreditation for failing to provide “an interactive webpage and a port 43 Whois service providing free public query-based access to up-to-date (i.e., updated at least daily) data concerning all active Registered Names sponsored by Registrar for each TLD in which it is accredited.”

Simply Named and Tahoe Domains both lost accreditation for failing to escrow registration data with ICANN and failing to pay accreditation fees according to the Registrar Accreditation Agreement.
