There are now no ICANN-accredited registrars in Brazil, following the termination of Universo Online’s contract this week.

I understand the agreement was ended at UOL’s request. It’s not a case of it breaching its contract.

UOL is a big deal in Brazil, getting beaten in the eyeballs stakes only by the likes of Google and Facebook, but as a registrar it wasn’t in the top 100 globally.

It had a little over 100,000 gTLD domains under management at the last count, with a peak over the last five years of roughly 200,000

I hear that these remaining domains will be transferred to Tucows’ accreditation.

Brazil has had at least four registrars, including UOL, over the years.

Many domain investors are dropping most of their domain names, as online revenues are fairly low
