New Domain Registration Validation Policy for CoCCa Domains .CX & .NF

The Australian Government has mandated CoCCA validate the registrant data for new .CX and .NF registrations.  Upon each new registration, CoCCa will now be emailing registrants to validate their contact data. 

Starting January 1, 2011 if a registrant does not validate their contact data within seven (7) days the registrar on account will be notified. After fourteen (14) days of non-compliance, CoCCa is required to suspend the domain (though the domain remains registered).  Since it is the sole responsibility of the registrant to comply with CoCCa, in such cases of non-compliance, HEXONET will NOT provide any refunds.
