  Further Information

   Registrar's Agreement with Registrants

  • Registrars are advised that compliance with the .ASIA Registry-Registrar Agreement (RRA) would involve reviewing and amending their existing Registration Agreements with the Registrant. The onus of ensuring compliance with the RRA remains on Registrars.
  • To assist you in meeting the requirements of the RRA, we have provided you with a set of sample clauses covering those provisions required for compliance. While these sample clauses are provided for reference only, they are not legal advice from DotAsia Organisation about how to meet your obligations under the RRA. You should obtain independent legal advice in order to ensure that all of your obligations under the RRA are met.
  • Throughout the term of the RRA, DotAsia Organisation reserves the right to request a copy of the Registration Agreement from you in order to check for compliance with the RRA.
