KSregistry becomes registry provider for .VG
The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Virgin Islands (TRC) has sourced out the operation of .VG, the ccTLD of Virgin Islands. The former technical backend provider, KSregistry GmbH, resumes the operation of .VG in future. IANA performed a re-delegation which brought back the .VG zone under the control and the responsibility of the TRC on April 11, 2014. However, the .VG zone will remain frozen until April 15, 2014, 10:00 UTC.
While the .VG zone is frozen, no registrations, modifications, transfers, deletions or renewals can be made. From April 15, 2014, 10:00 UTC to May 11, 2014, 23:59 UTC the .VG TLD will be reopened for KSregistry accredited registrars. It will then be possible to update, renew or delete domain names. Starting May 12, 2014, 10:00 UTC KSregistry will also allow the registration of new domain names.
Please be aware that since Meridian has to this time not provided the zone file to either KSregistry or the Sponsoring organization, domain actions which have been processed since March 8, 2013 through the Meridian system will not be reflected in the new .VG zone. In order to become an accredited KSregistry .VG registrar please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide you the RRA for signature.
