Hi

What happens if your URL parker goes bankrupts or out of business. Maybe its as bad as loosing communication with the people who park your URL. What happens then..?

You would just have to renew the domain(s) with another registrar before expiry.  Assuming you can get at your UDAI or otherwise prove ownership.

It's not clear from your question if

a) you have a domain and the registrar is hosting a parked page or
b) you have a domain with a registrar and the parked page with a hosting provider (different from your registrar)

If a) then as above, if b) then just update the DNS pointing to wherever you decide to move your hosting to.

Say for example I woke up one day and discovered that Freeparking was no longer in business and I was unable to contact them. How would I get control of my URL that I parked with them..?




P.S.. Freeparking are a great comapany..

Again, who is the registrar for the domain? In this hypothetical situation would you be using freeparking for both domain registration and website hosting?

Domain registrars are essentially reselling domain names, from the registry. So as long as you can get the Auth Code, or UDAI (for nz domains) you can move it to another domain provider. The parking page is often just a free page the domain provide gives you, so you can setup with another provider if they offer that service.

My domains registrations are a mess and are on parked on 3 different registrars. But thats a different problem.

They are parked on

1stDomain

Freeparking and

domains4less

All have been great companies, so none of my domains are in trouble. So my question is purely  hypothetical..

But I now realize that URL ownership goes further up the chain. But it would be scary if you lost your URL. SEX.COM is a classic example. But that another story all together..

The Domain Name Commissioner has the power and process to step in an intervene if the DNS registrar becomes bankrupt.  I don't know the exact process, but more than likely the DNC would appoint another registrar to take over the domains, or provide a process to move them to a new registrar.

http://dnc.org.nz/

This link appears to describe some of the process:
http://dnc.org.nz/content/srs_framework_and_business_rules-v2.0.doc
Refer to the section "Impact on cancellation". It says want happens when the DNC cancels a registrar, which is what happens if they become bankrupt or otherwise unable to continue to provide service.

For a gTLD like .com, .org, etc, ICANN accredited registrars have to upload their registration information to an ICANN approved data escrow service.  This protects registrants against their registrations going awol with a rogue registrar.  If the registrar loses its accreditation, they're obligated to provide registration data to ICANN so it can be redistributed to accredited organisations.  If they're unreachable, the escrow is used.
