    Dear Sir,

    We would like to further clarify your questions:

    > First of all, thank you very much for the courtesy of your detailed reply. > If I am correct in my understanding of what you have told me: > 1. Pool.com are not yet accredited and if this remains the case they are not > allowed to offer any services.


    > 2. The individual registrar has to submit a domain application, and it has > to be on a first-come first-serve basis. If the registrar (who must be > accredited) is successful in acquiring the domain name, he/she may not > re-sell the domain name (for example, to another registrar).

    No, you misunderstood something here in so far as it is not the registrar who is acquiring the domain name; it is in fact the end customer/registrant.

    Regarding your questions, we want to stress once again that, as laid out in Article 4 and 5 of the EC regulation 874/2004, only accredited registrars may offer registration services for .eu names.

    The accredited register must forward to EURid only those applications he received after accreditation, and he must do so on a first-come-first-served basis.

    Auctioning with the domain name is definitely not allowed. Not complying with the regulation and as well as the agreement is a breach of contract.

    On a similar note, we don't allow reselling.

    The end consumer should at at any time know who is responsible for what and who would be the accredited registrar. This should be made clear at all times and should be explicitely mentioned in the agreement with the end consumer.

    It is up to the registrar to decide which modell he would use as long as this modell is in compliance with the EC regulation as well as the agreement.

    EURid will continue to monitor and will also post warnings if it should be necessary.

    As for your remarks concerning shell registrars and blank rounds, we would like to point out that we follow the policy "one company - one agreement". We will not introduce "blank rounds" as we want to keep it as fair as possible, using the first-come-first-served system, which means that the fastest registrar can only register one domain name before he will automatically be thrown out by the system. Then he would have to get back into the queue as anybody else.

    Kind regards,

    Your EURid team
