KSregistry becomes registry provider for .VG

2014-04-14, 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. Due to the difficulties with the former .VG zone manager, 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. Discrepancies in the registration data may result from the operation of a shadow registry by a third party that had partial control of the .VG zone from March 8, 2013 to April 11, 2014.

Since the previous TLD operator Meridian was never an authorized registry provider and because of the unwillingness of Meridian to cooperate, all domain actions which have been processed since March 8, 2013 through the Meridian system unfortunately cannot not be reflected in the .VG zone.  In order to become an accredited KSregistry .VG registrar please contact us at registrarsupport@nic.vg. We will provide you the RRA for signature.
