We have covered about the Mitsu.in registar account termination news in the previous post. Yesterday, we have received the feedback from domain name registrants that they couldn’t transfer the domain names out of Mitsu.in. The same feedback has triggered the curiosity in our end, as a matter of fact few of the domain name owners were able to transfer the names out of mitsu.in and why not now? We have investigated further to find out the details and has suspected a possible judicial stay order on the termination of the registar account. We have searched the high court websites and finally we come across this stay order in Bombay High Court website.

Few FAQs are answered considering the domain registrants interest.
What will happen to my names due for renewal? Will i loose my names and my websites will get impacted?
– If any of your names at Mitsu Inc registar are getting expired , those names will be prohibited from deletion or renewal or transfer by IN registry. It means your names are safe. In terms of your websites they will continue to work as they are working today until unless you are changing your website hosting provider. Name server updates are not possible in the current situation.
Isn’t it a violation of the registrant rights for prohibiting the renewal or transfer or not allowing to the update to the name servers?
– In our view , yes its a clear violation of the registrant rights. Registrants are not the party to any dispute here , more of the victims in this particular issue. Domain name owners are free to exercise what they believe right in terms of choosing the period of renewal up to 10 years (as per registrant agreement) or transfer the domain name to the choice of registar or chosing a hosting provider. On a different note Mitsu.in as an impacted business has the right to protect their business interests , so overall the situaiton itself is turned to be a tricky one. TIME IS THE ONLY MEDICINE.
How long it may take to see the complete resolution of the issue from registrants point of view?
– We believe its hard to say , as the matter is with in the controls of Honorable High Court. At times the court disputes can prolong for many months or could be years too. The other hand in the order , clearly the next hearing is due 20th Nov. So we are hoping this particular issue will be resolved by November month end. Exihibiting the optimism is the best the registrants can do for now.
