bulk transfer of EstDomains portfolio to another domain registrar :
"On 28 October 2008, ICANN sent a notice of termination to EstDomains. Based on an Estonian Court record, ICANN has reason to believe that the president of EstDomains, Vladimir Tsastsin, was convicted of credit card fraud, money laundering and document forgery on 6 February 2008. ICANN received a response from EstDomains regarding the notice of termination. To assess the merits of the claims made in EstDomains’ response, ICANN has stayed the termination process as ICANN analyzes these claims. ICANN’s records indicate that EstDomains has approximately 281,000 domain names under its management. ICANN will take all reasonable measures to protect the interests of registrants during the stay period and the subsequent termination process that may follow."

Disconnected from the Internet at the end of September, Atrivo/Intercage's marginal thinking approach of being always on the run, yet managing to satisfy the uptime needs of their malicious customers, is similar to what EstDomains rogue customers will be dealing with for months to come - increasing the average online time for their malicious domains with their cybercrime friendly registrar no longer in business.
