Domain name registrants required to update their data

Argentina
NIC Argentina, the registry responsible for the ‘.ar’ country-code top-level domain, has announced that it would be implementing a new system to register and administer Argentine domain names.
 
To this end, all current registrants of Argentine domain names must update the data which is held for them in NIC Argentina's database by March 31 2010.  The date was initially set as March 1 2010, but was extended due to the large volume of documentation received in relation to this.
 
NIC Argentina requires that the registrant's address, telephone number and fax number be up to date and accurate, and requires a valid and active email address. In addition, registrants must provide either their tax identification code (Código Único de Identificación Tributaria, or CUIT) or their national identity document number (Documento Nacional de Identidad,  or DNI). Thus, any entity which has registered a domain name under a fake name or company must update the domain name ownership details before the given deadline.
 
Failure to update any registrant information by March 31 2010 will result in the cancellation of the registrant in NIC Argentina's database, along with the cancellation of any associated domain names.
