Hi

Can anyone suggest me a trusted non-US domain registrar? I have an online store selling products on the gray area market, and Namecheap recently decided to block my website.

I managed to move it to another domain registrar, but I want to move it somewhere outside the US so they can't have access to block my domain on the US market.

Have any of you had similar problems? Any good recommendations?

Thank you!

suggest me a trusted non-US domain registrar
I've registered my domains with these non-US offshore domain registrars since years.
Best one's:
  • nicenic.net (HK)
  • the-online.com (NL)
  • ourdomains (HK)
  • shinjiru (MY) though they seem to discontinue domain registrations now.
  • gransy / subreg (CZ)
  • eranet / todaynic .com
  • hexonet / 1API (DE)
Bad one's: (they suspend domains)
  • njal.la
  • ownregistrar (India)
  • easydns (Canada)
  • onlinenic.com (not safe anymore)

Do the "Best one's" suspend domain? Like njal.la? They take non-suspended domains as well.

My domains with njal.la were suspended just because of some copyright notices.
Search BHW forum and you'll find tons of people complaining that njal.la suspends and takes-over their domain. you are locked-out totally!

For the list of best one's, I had used all of them for my clients sites and what I received is the forwarded abuse notices via email. Only once I was asked to transfer out my domain from eranet/todaynic.com. That is they didn't suspended or confiscated my domain unlike Njal.la or ownregister.com. Even I can add namecheap to best one's list because they also politely ask to transfer out!

Yeah, njal.la is shit, they lock out all domains if even one of your domains gets suspended. So you recommend eranet/todaynic.com?

@jennykumar it shows https://the-online.com/ is owned by godaddy? So how can it be safe?
 
my first choice is njal.la they are very strike on privacy but no gurrantte with blocking issues on us market you may try it.
 
I have never used The-Online.com, but I've heard other recommend it. However, personally I'd pick someone else simply because they are registered in and doing business from US. A genral rule is to stay away from any US entity.

Would you mind providing some proof for that? Unless you're doing some real blackhat shit, easyDNS only suspends domains when they get an Ontario court order or an order from ICANN (for ICANN-controlled domains) or CIRA (for .ca domains). For piracy sites it's solid as long as you get a DMCA ignored TLD that they register themselves (.org) rather than resell from Tucows. It has been The Pirate Bay's domain registrar since 2014 despite pressure from the RIAA. easyDNS also got ICANN to transfer a bunch of piracy domains to them that a competing registrar called PDR had suspended without a court order on the request of the Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) of City of London Police.

you have half baked information.
.org does suspends domains for copyright/DMCA. One of the BHW member has already experienced it.
only some cctlds ignore DMCA including .to, .so, .su, .ru etc. and some european cctlds like Luxembourg's etc.

easydns can do nothing if I contact the .com registry and ask them to suspend domain "serverhold status" and it gets suspended at registry. No need to go to Ontario court to get a written order. I've already taken down many such domains across many registrar asking my clients to file DMCA with registry or directly send them subpoena through a lawyer. In said circumstances the registry puts hold on the domain. And your registrar easydns is of no help in this situation.

IF a copyright holder sends DMCA to easydns and according to their TOS, they actively act upon DMCA complaint (though they are Canadian) and forward your the DMCA and you have to take down the content. Too many DMCA piling up for your domain, easydns will ask you to move out. (this is as per their TOS clauses). Please read them. So they are not safe or reliable domain registrar at all. I would recommend to avoid easydns.

Namesilo is quite reliable than easydns. They don't act upon DMCA unless you use their web hosting. If you only have domain, they ask the copyright holder to go to hosting provider. As suggested by @brownsofts here. Even the-online.com, nicenic.net, ourdomain.com, gandi.net (europe) etc follow policies like namesilo. But when they too will receive notification from domain registry, like Verisign for .com/.net, that the copyright holder has filed DMCA/subpoena with at Registry level, the registry will keep the domain on "hold".

For nicenic.net, one has to send registered copyright certificate from any Government authority. So if someone copies your image, text, blogpost, logo, etc and you don't have registered it that is you don't have physical copyright certificate that shows your are the sole owner of that piece of content, then nicenic will not act on DMCA/copyright complaints at all. I've first hand experience with them too!
