Domain Suspended or Deleted for Non-Response to Whois Inquiry

Domain name deletion, domain name suspension -- domain owner nightmare! A lot of potential for problems for domain name owners, here is the correct info from the source:

Domain Suspended or Deleted for Non-Response to Whois Inquiry | ICANN: "The 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) requires ICANN-accredited registrars to comply with the Whois Accuracy Program Specification. This specification requires a registrar to take action when a registrant does not respond for over 15 calendar days to a registrar's inquiries regarding the accuracy of contact details or Whois data associated with the registration. The action can be to terminate or suspend the non-responsive registrant's domain name, or to place a lock on the domain name registration until the registrar is able to validate information provided by the registrant. These requirements only apply to registrars under the 2013 RAA. Registrars still under the 2001 or 2009 RAA do not have this requirement. To determine which RAA version applies to a registrar, visit the ICANN-Accredited Registrars page, which lists the RAA version for every registrar. If your domain name was suspended, terminated or locked, and you timely responded to a registrar's inquiry regarding the Whois data for the domain name, please submit a Whois Service Complaint Form."

Make sure your Whois info is correct and up to date.
