    I've tried twice to register a domain and both times they got flagged for fraud. This is just a regular vanilla card i don't know why it keeps getting flagged.
    Does any one know of a similar quality registrar so i can go there instead? Or tell me why they keep getting flagged?

    Did you go to the Vanilla Card website and register a name on the card? If so, use that name on your purchase.

    O strange this one is "you only need to register a zipcode" ill poke around and see if they allow more info on the card. Thanks.

    Yeah i just checked it only allows a zip code to be added, both 1&1 and namecheap did not allow the card, so strange.

    Visa Vanialla stopped letting you add a name and address a year or two ago due to massive fraud use with the card. You'll find most affiliate offers also block VCCs as well.

    Have you contacted Namecheap? I'm sure they'll tell you why it's blocked. Call the CC company, there might be a way to validate the card.

    I tried registering at moniker but they said my ip is in an unknown country (USA), maybe since i was behind a VPN namecheap canceled the orders? Is it really that hard to buy a domain anymore? You can't be anonymous if you use your real IP and contact info.
