Domain Thieves

This is scarey - but not new to the web world. It's just easier for the domain squatters now.

 

Where do people find the time to do this kind of stuff? Spam, squatting, etc?

 

I wish they would do charity work instead with all their free time. :P

 

Weezy

(3) The registrar initiates the transfer.

 

(4) The registry checks to see if the name is on Registrar-LOCK, if so,

the transfer request is rejected.  Registrants may choose to put domain

names on registrar-lock.  Many registrars now put names on lock by

default, and give the registrant the opportunity to remove a lock prior

to transfer.

 

Good to know, I believe most registars have a way for you to lock your domain, if not ask them.

Sorry to do CPR on a old topic, but this brings up a point of interest.

 

 

If your Registar has your Domain-name locked, then no one can smuggle it away via a Transfer, correct? Not in any method?

 

Because I heard somewhere, that some places will allow in Call-in alterations.

I tried to transfer one domain one time and the registrant asked me to provide a lot of legal papers proving I am the owner of the domain like driver's licence, attorney's letter and such before they can initiate the transfer. I thought that is a lot of trouble for I am the ownere of the domain and I can't even do anything about it. I think that is good though because anybody can just claim to be me and call or contact my registrant and asked a domain to be transfered.
