48 Pheenix-related registrars were recently terminated by ICANN for breaches in their Registrar contract. EnCirca was selected by ICANN to manage the affected domains. You should have received a "Welcome" email explaining the situation. This email would have been sent to the domain account owner's email address.
The registrar voluntarily terminated its Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA). ICANN asked Encirca to take over the domains.
We have a number of Pheenix domains without registrant information. You must claim your domain by January 1, 2019 in order for it to be put into your EnCirca account. Failure to do so may result in your registration lapsing.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with us. We will confirm the status of your domains and help you with next steps.
If your domains are currently at EnCirca, you should have received an email from us that includes your username. See below for how to get your password. In order to manage your domains, go to https://www.encirca.com/manage
Please contact email@example.com or chat with us. We will send the username to the registrant's email address.

Unfortunately, some domains are on hold because the registrar failed to provide the right customer data. Please fill out this form if you would like to start to domain claim process: https://new.encirca.com/domain-owner-claim-form/
Your domain was placed on hold because the previous registrar did not include the required customer data. We will update you when we resolve this issue.
