auDA suspends ING's accreditation

Domain name registrar auDA has suspended Internet Name Group's (ING's) provisional accreditation following action taken by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) alleging the company made false and misleading representations.

The consumer watchdog announced it is taking legal action against ING in the Federal Court.

Chris Disspain, CEO at .au Domain Administration (auDA) said the domain name reseller will not be able to refer to itself as a provisionally-accredited registrar until the action brought by the ACCC is finalised.

"Having carefully considered the matter, auDA holds the view that there is a question as to whether ING is capable of complying with the terms of auDA's registrar agreement and published policies," Disspain said.

Internet Name Group was one of 10 applicants that were granted provisional accreditation by auDA late last year.
