Had a crazy day today. Less than a year ago I purchased a domain for $13,500. The domain was registered at godaddy. In October I transferred the domain to network solutions with 14 months remaining on the registration and I added another two years. This morning I was on the phone with network solutions for an issue and noticed that the domain was no longer in my portfolio. After talking to support, I was told my credit card was declined for the two year registration. I was never notified of the problem and the $10 charge for transferring the domain did go through, but the two year registration seemed to be lost in limbo and never appeared on my card. I've had several network solutions charges on my card go through since that date. I was told the domain was "deleted" due to the failed charge and someone had registered it. I quoted the word deleted, because the domain wasn't deleted. It was transferred to New Ventures Services, Corp who wanted $8000 to return the domain. No history of the domain going to pending delete/delete. I checked with my issuer and there was never an attempted charge on my credit card for the amount they claimed. There has never been a point in the last year that my card been near maxed out and charges have been applied since Nov 17th when they stole the domain. After an hour of yelling at a rep then a manager for over an hour and the very real threat of a lawsuit they relented and put the domain back in my domain portfolio. I've done a bunch of research today and it appears that New Ventures Services Corp is in some associated with web.com (network solutions) I'm currently in the process of moving all my business off of network solutions.
