    I am replying to Namescon email regarding my domains accepted, and linking this for clarification to why I will not be dealing with Namescon due to relationship with this issue. I suggest those here do the same.

    we are a product of our environment, and a relationship with dishonest dealings will carry the reputation forward.

    NamesCon Rep says there is more to the story. dont believe everything you read on the internet.
    which is unfortunately true, last time I trusted the internet too much I was sending money western Union to the king of Ardabil to release the billion rupees his ancestors left him.

    but fact is , we should see the storey of the other side come on here and hash it out with the original poster, but no, they wont, they dont appear on here. just hide and lick the grease off their immoral paws. ( referring to netsol if story is true. )

    I have paid for many domains on many occasions that were already owned I recieived a refund and moved on. It will likely happen again with registras checking whois etc and not always detecting results being a common error.

    Network Solutions made it clear way back in early 2000s that they OWN the domains and end users merely lease them.
    And I'm hearing that they now feel they have carte blanche do whatever they want with the help of the current administration.

    "Network Solutions, the oldest and largest registrar of Web domain names, changed its contract in recent months to allow it to take names back--and recent court decisions support that policy.

    In a decision that went largely unnoticed in the press, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled 7-2 last month that a domain name "is the product of a contract for services," and not a type of property that a Web site owns."

    I hate netsol and will never keep a single registration on their platform. Let me clarify for google.. network solutions is the worst registrar in existence!

    seriously? I sure hope its only netsol that has such ridiculous policies in place.. and its not implemented across several or most other registrars.. in a largely unnoticed manner too.

    if anyone here owns very valuable domains at netsol.. I guess now would be a good time to get them out of there.

    Namecoin is a cryptocurrency that implements the top level domain .bit, which is independent of ICANN. Namecoin was mentioned by ICANN in a public draft report as the most well-known example of distributing control and privacy in DNS.... Wikipedia


    FYI:
    .bit currently needs "a bit of help" to work in most browsers.

    I stay away from them, even with $1 promotions. It's not worth it.

    Who said can't believe you read? Because people can certainly believe what @owntype wrote here. So was it a rep from @namescon @GoDaddy or Monte from right of the dot.

    Network Solutions mispriced their name, @owntype purchased it, they have in their TOS within a certain time frame (usually first 30 days) they can pull a name back. Go read the TOS of your favorite registrar and read what you are actually agreeing to, it's not a balanced relationship.

    Look the bottom line is registrars and marketplaces to a lesser degree have mechanisms in place if something is priced wrong to take back the name. Now if a domain investor makes a mistake those mechanisms are not in place and you would actually need someone to do you a favor. To be fair some absolutely have done favors to help out a domainer in some cases.

    This time of year reminds me of a Christmas when @fleaking had Pets.tv taken from him and we spent part of the holiday weekend trying to figure out what happened and what he could do about getting the name back. Long story, short, he didn't get it back. Pets.tv went to Byron Allen and his Entertainment Studios and is actually played on cable tv at certain parts of the week depending on your cable provider.

    The crazy part about Pets.tv was Fleaking traded a valuable name of his to the person who actually caught Pets.tv, so Verisign went in and took the name and Fleaking had not even entered into an agreement with them on Pets.tv where the TOS would have played out.

    When registrars and aftermarkets screw up, domain investors usually get screwed.

    Name now belongs to Frank Schiling & Uni, probably one of the top perfect end users.

    THis happened to me once with Name.com - found a real good one fully pronouncable and short for $25, they had it in the account a few hours then poof took it back without warning or anything, had to fight for a refund even. Lots of crookedness.
