Assistance to Registrants located in Japan (2011-03-31)

CORE has also decided to offer assistance to registrants in Japan as
they might be without the ability to renew their domain names.

CORE is going to take over the renewal fees for one year for all names
that expire in the March 11 – April 30, 2011 period and where the
registrant country address is Japan.

CORE is going to proceed with the refund of the renewal fees for one
year paid by the Members for domains with registrants in Japan during
this period. We hope to contribute this way a bit to help the
registrants in Japan and we encourage you to exercise additional care in
the deletion process to avoid deleting names where the registrant has
not yet paid due to the disasters.
