What does the term “last resort function” mean?

Updated 13 May, 2020

Under a registry-registrar model, it is commonplace to deploy a “last resort function.” The last resort function is established to ensure that the registrant has continuous domain-name service in case a registrar’s agreement with The Swedish Internet Foundation ceases. For a limited time, until the registrant has selected a new registrar,  The Swedish Internet Foundation will ensure that the registrant has a working domain name service.
