    That's why you never buy domains from godaddy. Take it as a lesson learned.

    If you put a brand name in your domain you are violating their copyright. If that is the case then you were in the wrong. Looking at the National Arbitration Forum site most of the cases they take are with copyright infringement.

    As other have said, avoid GoDaddy, but if this was a case of copyright infringement you would have lost the domain anyway.

    Yes I think this is the copyright issue. You should get a notice in next coming days.

    Namecheap is good, just make sure to not let it expire otherwise they will register it for themselves and sell it back to you for like $300. (yes, this did actually happened to me a few months ago). For hosting I use HostGator.

    GoDaddy has quite a long reputation for fining, hijacking domains and websites so stay away from them.

    I think it's bullshit they charged $29 without your permission, i'd contact visa and at least get that back. Godaddy blows but the others are right, if it was copyright infringement it didn't really matter who you were with.

    D*mn, that sucks... Maybe you used a registered brand as one of your keywords in your domain.

    dude, they put that fee in the list of compliance fees in your user agreement

    still, it sucks to have that happen, and any registrar would have done that (maybe not with the fee though)
    it's in the agreement they sign with icann to be able to register domains
    technically it's icann that pulled the domain, it's just godaddy was forced to comply

    Why did you start this thread without saying what your domain name contained? If it contained a brand name or a trademark, like faceboook, ms or whatever and it was used in the same context you would have lost the domain name regardless of what register it was registered on.

    Also, chances are the person who had the TM sent you an email a long time ago telling you to give away the domain name, which you didn't notice.
