Google Domain Name Registration Agreement

3.1. It is the Registrar`s responsibility to submit the area file information to enter the corresponding registration database. The Registrar fulfills this obligation by providing the domain name, name server information and other information necessary to create and maintain the domain name, including personal data provided by the registrant. The Registrar is required to check the details of the registrant from time to time in accordance with the applicable ICANN and/or registration rules. 5.1. The personal data provided by the filers in the name application and the registration of domain names are: (i) forwarded to ICANN and/or the relevant registry; (ii) be made available to the public through the WHOIS service, in accordance with the requirement of ICANN and/or the relevant registry; and/or (iii) are used by the Registrar for registration in registries and databases established by registrars or resellers. Declaring recognizes that ICANN and/or registrations are established worldwide and accepts this transfer only to facilitate the registration of domain names and the day-to-day management of any domain name registration. 11.1. The registrant undertakes to compensate, defend and retain unscathed ICANN, all registrars and their directors, officers, employees and representatives of and against all rights, damages, expenses, expenses and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising from or related to the registration of the filer`s domain names. This obligation of compensation expressly applies to the termination of this agreement. Domain registrars such as GoDaddy and Google and other Internet service providers are under enormous pressure to regulate online content. If censorship of unpopular discourse has long been a left-wing requirement for technology companies, it is now the government`s requirement to regulate the same companies. In internet governance, it is the terms of use that are important.

This ICANN consensus policy was partially developed to curb the practice of domain name piracy. But in the case of several legitimate transfers, it can also prevent the use of a domain name for a while. In this case, the registrant transferred GoDaddy`s registered name to Google Domains and attempted to transfer it back from Google Domains shortly thereafter. As a result, Google (or more likely its automated system) could have placed a ClientHold on the registered name.
