Epik Going Down?

Nothing but issues with them the past few weeks, then I read online that people are owed millions of dollars. I have paid to renew several domains and come to find out those domains never got renewed - epik claims it isnt a problem. Two weeks ago they told me it was a glitch, today they tell me they never heard back from their engineers. Whatever that means... guess I am going back to namecheap!

Just for testing purposes to prove to myself if you are really paid actors, I went to renew one of my .NET domains at Epik using my credit card, the domain is not renewed after 6 minutes, but payment was charged from the card. So there seems some CC issues at Epik.
Will see if it will renew or not and how much time will take.

I was about to post this upper message but the domain is renewed after more than 10 minutes, maybe because I selected Manual renewal for the domain?
Because there are 3 options Automatic, Manual and Off. Maybe they did it manually or what?

I have some domains which were renewed last year and domains are working all good. But WHOIS data says expiry of last year?
Is this some update issue? Where can I fetch latest fresh WHOIS dates?

Just to update, after contacting support, they updated the domain and now reflected with 1 year extension.

They are scam people who are living outside of the USA because such customers can not send lawsuits etc
Utterly wrong assumption. I don't think they discriminate on who to scam based on location. Once you fall prey, your country or location doesn't matter.

You quoted old, mistaken and unactual info.
It was fixed now. All domains renewing and transfers works out and in.

Dynadot disabled for sale page for no reason.
So you thought you'd be better off moving to a registrar that's teetering on the edge of collapse? Not sure I understand the logic.

Don't listen to this paid GD actors, we tested it and it works, just renewed another NET with PP, it was instant, with CC it was about 10 minutes!
Fake users exposed which want to destroy Epik, not talking about Pianomover guy. :ROFL:
