    These fucks stole my domain today, it was not expiring and i went to add something to it about 20mins ago it boom it points to there damn fuckin domain landing page.

    I swear i just emailed them, they may step up and hurry before i take major legal action.

    Never trust a fucking domain registrar. Or Godaddy for that matter.

    Hey that sucks! I got all mine at Godaddy as well, Harro I sure that your name is still the register owner at WHOIS, have you checked mate, that will also help to prove that it belongs to you, good luck..

    I checked its not mine no more. Its registered under there name.

    Dont worry about proving it belongs to me, i always keep proof of everything i own its like owning a car without a log book or license ;) or a house without the deeds.

    This is very disturbing - how are they able to do this?
    I have a lot of sites registered there

    Yeah, I don't even understand why they exist. I don't even like checking for domain names there. When I'm ready to start a site, then I go through my host and work down my list of chosen names.

    I'm extremely anal about 3rd parties for anything. Like, I don't even like doing keyword research through other peoples' sites. I have a membership at Wealthy Affiliate and they have a keyword research tool....and I will not use it. I trust NO ONE.

    I use Namecheap and they've been alright for all my domains. I also have one with Dynadot who seem to have been fine.

    You never got them back? Did they say what happened to them or did they just keep quiet and keep 'em?

    Enom.com is a first party registrar.

    I now use namecheap.com mostly. While I still have a few domains registered with godaddy, I'll be moving them shortly. I don't like what I've been hearing about their practices.

    Although I don't understand how they could commandeer your DN, unless you've had a spam or fraud complaint--in which case, I've heard, that they often redirect the DNS prior to asking questions. In any case, I'm not liking what I'm hearing about them over the past 18 months and have ceased using them to register DN's.

    Best of luck with it.

    I have often wondered about GoDaddy. I do register all my domains there but occasionally I have found an obscure one and for one reason or another couldn't buy it that second - then it is not available when I go back half hour latter. But is available to buy at a premium of somebody else. Perhaps I am paranoid!

    My question is what did you do to make them do that? Seriously. What BH technique is it? Cloaking? Blogging? teasing? Stripping???

    Cmon tell us Harro. Don't be shy.
