    Hi guys, looking for a bit of advice here.

    I purchased a domain in December of last year. I purchased it directly from a reputable registrar.

    I haven't had the need to use it, until now. So I decided to transfer it to a different hosting company, which I use for all of my hosting.

    I provided the EPP and all necessary details, but the transfer failed multiple times.

    I then started looking through WHOIS records for this domain that I purchased last year, and it appears that this domain is registered to somebody else and has been since 1998. But my account shows me as owning this domain.

    How could this happen? I have the invoice for registering the domain.

    Do I own it or not? What are my rights here?

    Set the nameservers of the domain to your host. This will tell you if you control the domain if it resolves or not. You can also contact support at the registrar of record.

    Thanks for replying.

    The nameservers are pointing to my host. But this is not reflected in the WHOIS record. Not looking good!
