RegisterFly.com – Registrador NO recomendado

Si teneis registrados dominios con el registrador de dominios RegisterFly.com os recomiendo que los transfirais lo antes posible a otro registrador de confianza.

RegisterFly.com

Y no es porque os lo diga yo, pero son muchas las críticas que se han acumulado hacia este registrador, de gente que ha visto como se quedaban sus dominios, literalmente.

Todos los registradores reciben quejas, no existe el servicio perfecto, pero RegisterFly.com se lleva la palma y con diferencia, por apropiación indebida de dominios, algo difícil de perdonar a un registrador de dominios.

¿Alguien tiene dominios registrados en RegisterFly.com?

  1. Que te voy a contar que no sepas Ferran, me han caducado 2 dominios que tenía para que se renovaran de forma automática, me los cobraron pero no los han renovado, les he mandado varios tickets a registerfly desde hace una semana y pasan de mí olímpicamente, les he llamado y comunica, menuda MIERDA de empresa, así con todas las palabras. Voy a empezar a mudar todos mis dominios a otra empresa y espero recuperar los dos dominios que me han caducado por su culpa. Aquí también comentan el problema: http://alt1040.com/archivo/2006/05/19/problemas-con-registerfly-y-alt1040com/

    Por cierto Ferran, muchas gracias por ayudarme a intentar solucionar el problema.

  2. El artículo de alt1040.com es del año pasado, pero yo he leído problemas ya en el 2004

    Increible que todavia sobrevivan como registradores de dominios 😯

  3. Hoy precisamente me ha llegado un correo de registerfly pidiendo que renueve un dominio que dicen que tengo con ellos porque esta apunto de expirar. El caso es que ese dominio lo tengo en godaddy desde hace mas de 1 año.

  4. Pues vaya plan, la verdad es que uno leyendo cosas así se acaba sintiendo algo inseguro.

    Hablando de registradores… habeis oido hablar de vdnw.com? sabeis si es fiable? Me han hablado de ellos y los precios son muy buenos…ahora bien…son de confianza?

  5. Sí, yo haciendo búsquedas en google por registerfly sucks también me encontré unas cuantas quejas del 2004… yo tampoco me explico cómo son capaces de seguir funcionando siendo tan sumamente incompetentes.

  6. El hecho de que no aparezcan en la lista, es un indicio claro de que no son de confianza?

    Se ha dado el caso de que alguna empresa nueva desaparezca un buen día dejando a los clientes con un palmo de narices, sin dominios y sin la pasta?

  7. Podria ser un reseller de otro registrador, y bueno, no he visto muchas empresas españolas de confianza en esa lista.

    Pero el hecho de que el dominio se registrara hace un par de meses, no da mucha confianza, frente a empresas que llevan años.

  8. A mi me paso hace tiempo, al intentar renovar un dominio no me dejaba. Les envie varios mails pero no respondieron.

    Al final el dominio caduco, pero alguien se lo quedo y lo puso en parking

  9. Yo sigo sin tener problems con Godaddy, además hoy conoci en un congreso al VP y uno de los accionistas de la compaía. Así que ya tengo un contacto directo de alto nivel 😉

  10. Yo sí tengo problemas con Godaddy, tardan mucho en actualizar las DNS y no tienen opción a poner unas DNS por defecto nuestras, para no tener que cambiar las DNS cada vez que registras un dominio.

    No son problemas graves, pero tocan los webs 👿

  11. Yo he tenido muchos problemas con Piensa Solutions!!! Y ya los he medio arreglado.

    En godaddy te permiten cambio de dns por el registo del dominio? o hay que contratar algun servicio de hosting con ellos?

    Saludos

  12. Te permiten cambio de dns gratuito.

    El problema es si registras muchos dominios y quieres que aparezcan por defecto con tus propias DNS, NO las suyas 😕

  13. Ferran, en GoDaddy sí puedes seleccionar un DNS por defecto para los dominios que registras.

    Bueno, en realidad lo que creas son perfiles y a cada perfil le puedes poner unos DNS, que para tu caso es lo mismo e incluso mejor. 😉

  14. POr si no se dieron cuenta VDNW.COM
    el registrador VDNW es Reseller de directi.

    Por cierto hay algo de garantia, pues si VDNW, se muere, sale del mercado, o tal vez le pase algo malo, lo cual no le deseeo; el registrador Directi, con publicdomainregistry, 😉 se haria cargo de los usuario y dominios, con las mismas politicas y precios de VDNW.

    Mi Vecino tambien usa Directi, por eso se los comento.

    Saludos desde Lima – Perú
    :twisted::twisted:
    Nota: A los que puedan, vengan de turismo a Peru, y visiten las Playas de Cabo Blanco – Piura, que hace un clima excelente.

  15. GoDaddy son muy pesaos.Para registrar un dominio tienes que pasar por mil paginas.Yo tengo la muchos dominios en registerfly y por ahora bien.

    Hay algun registrador bueno que tenga servicio gratuito de proteccion de whois?

    Saludos

  16. Pues a mi con Godaddy me va muy bien, para la gestion de multiples dominios lo veo muy util, rapido y barato. He tenido solo un fallo que aun no he resuelto, un dominio comprado que estaba libre. Le cambio las DNS y no funciona, el whois despues de 1 mes aun no esta a mi nombre, y para mas INRI, ese dominio tiene un pagerank 7 y en él hay una web en uso. Asi que lo tengo dificil.

  17. Deberíais probar bluerazor , es de godaddy, con una suscripción de 9 dolares al año te deja unos precios más competitivos, sobre todo la ocultación del whois.

  18. Ellos se dedican ahora a subastar dominios con visitas falsas, OJO el último ha sido en SEDO : warezfloor.com que tenía miles de vistas y no eran fiables. Alguien pagó.
    Salu2, Ferran

  19. Alguna experiencia con CDMON ?
    Tengo casi todos los .es con ellos y de momento el soporte técnico es bastante mediocre, pero alguien ha tgenido una historia de esas para no dormir gracias a ellos ?

  20. Con RegisterFly… tus dominios vuelan.

    Vaya sinvergüenzas. Creía que para ser registrador hay que poner una fianza/aval o algo así, precisamente para evitar estas situaciones, pero parece que no.

  21. pues algo parecido pasa en pwinc.myorderbox.com esta persona aparte que no te agrega el saldo segun que por verificacion cuando quieres hacer un traslado de dominio no te deja por que lo tienen blokeado tengo muchos dominios con el y la vdd estoy arto y ya me resigne a perder mis dominios por ello preferi abrir mi propio negocio de dominios para que la gente que a tenido problemas con eso puedan estar seguras y aprecios realmente baratos

    pude pagar el ser mayorista y ahora puedo ofrecerles un buen servicio

    gracias ferran por por dar esta noticia y protegernos

  22. Ahora desde Registerfly te dan la opción de traspasar directamente tus dominios a enom.com sin coste alguno. Para ello simplemente tienes que seleccionar la NO renavación automática.

    Si hablara de todos los problemas que tengo con Registerfly llenaría mínimo 5 folios, son unos mierdas, unos desastres, ladrones… y muchos mas calificativos que les podría llamar.

    También tengo muchos problemas en Piensasolutions.com porque son unos impresentables e incompetentes, incluso ya una vez les pillé en una falta que considero muy grave como es la publicidad engañosa que realizaron en una ocasión con los dominios .INFO

    Mucho cuidado también con Piensasolutions.com (Tesys Internet, S.L.).

    Saludos.

  23. He sido cliente de Registerfly desde mas de 5 años, hace dias renové algunos dominios pero me mandaron un mail de que no se pudo y caducaron, ellos si se cobraron a mi tarjeta de credito y no me han regresado el dinero, lamento por ellos la situacion, lo ultimo que me paso es que vi si un dominio estaba disponible para comentarlo al cliente, al dia siguiente que quise reservar el dominio, ya estaba en subasta, y es un nombre que solo a mi cliente le sirve, asi que sospecho grandemente que ellos fueron.
    Con ellos perdí varios dominios y solo me dijeron usted disculpe, en fin…
    Alguno de ustedes conoce si es seguro NAMECHEAP.COM es lo mas parecido que he encontrado como registerfrly en cuanto al panel de control y todo lo que uno puede hacer (que lo voy a extrañar de registerfly) también he usado hostway pero es un panel muy pobre.
    Espero me recomienden algo.

    http://www.elpais.com/articulo/internet/Linux/preinstalado/favor/elpeputec/20070220elpepunet_1/Tes

    vale la pena leerlo, es una de las sub noticias de acia abajo:

    Si usas el MSN Messenger, puede que hayas visto en los últimos días un anuncio que aseguraba que tenías un virus en el sistema. Se llama Winfixer y usaba el reclamo de anunciarse en un producto Microsoft, para instar al usuario más ingenuo a que comprase su programa, de forma totalmente innecesaria. Los de Microsoft ya han retirado el anuncio, pero las casas de seguridad, que últimamente tienen muchos motivos para enfadarse con los de Redmond, han puesto el grito en el cielo.

    ➡ El otro asunto de la semana es el de Registerfly, una compañía de registro de nombres de dominio (direcciónes de Internet), a la que le retiraron la licencia de revendedor, y que ha dejado a millones de sus usuarios con sus dominios bloqueados en el mejor de los casos. Leemos en Slashdot que el nuevo equipo de gestión está empezando a solucionar las cosas, poco a poco, desde http://www.registerflies.com

  25. Registerfly is stealing our domains
    They don’t renew the domains in time
    They don’t give as the auth code and they don’t unlock our domains to transfer them to another registrar so our domains are expiring and they use them.
    (in the past they stole my domains http://www.cyprusltd.com and http://www.cyprus-ltd.com and now they Stole greek-tour.net, Your-Travel-Guide.net which expired and they didn’t renew them)

    Perhaps registerfy.com and enom.com are the same company because registerfly.com stole my domains http://www.cyprusltd.com and http://www.cyprus-ltd.com and now I see that are hosted to enom.com and play ads for enom.com

    They connect with advertising companies or they have their one advertising company and they take advantage of the being registars and they are stealing domains from their customers which they use them to show advertising links for them.!!!
    Internet is full of complaints about registerfly, it is a fraud company.
    How do you let them be in business for so long.

    Please someone HELP ME in order to leave from these crops.

  26. Registerfly are criminals.

    If you take a look in the Internet, there a lot of forums that write about the frauds that they do to their customers.

    They send fake spamm e-mails to attack customers.

    They charge more in their customers’ visa card when they renew or register domains.

    They don’t change DNS of the domains names.

    They don’t Unlock the Lock flag on the domains and they don’t give the Authorization codes for the domains names in order to be transferred.

    They don’t answer the emails, tickets and when they answer they lie
    and they talk with sarcasm.

    All these things make a lot of trouble to many companies, and to many of my customers and give a very bad image about USA and American rules.
    These moves make people want to crash with aeroplanes to your offices and also make the foreigners to hate Americans so much that force them to do bad things to them. DON’T YOU SEE THAT?
    WHY DO YOU LET THESE KIND OF COMPANIES TO STAY IN BUSINESS FOR SO LONG?

    PLEASE MAKE A SEARCH ABOUT REGISTERFLY IN INTERNET FORUMS TO SEE THAT THEY SAY EXACTLY THE THINGS THAT I WRITE YOU.

  27. We have problems with Registerfly.

    They don’t send the author code in order to transfer to another registar.
    Can you help receive the author code and can you unlock our domains to move them to another registar?

    They don’t answer to our daily tickets and e-mails.

    They don’t unlock any domain at all.

    THEY DISABLE THE UNLOCK FUNCTION FROM THEIR FORM.!!!
    THE FUNCTION IS THERE BUT IT DOESN’T WORK AT ALL.

    This is monopoly, and is forbidden by the USA law. You cover them because you know all this and you don’t do anything. You are responsible because you give them permission to use in every contact the word “ICANN Accredited Registrar”.!!!

    This things are making aeroplanes crash your offices, don’t you see that?

    This company take hostages thousands companies all over the world, and all this saw an bad image to USA and to your laws, don’t you see that?

    Their purpose is to steal the domain names of their customers in order to put ads of the companies that guide them, don’t you see that?

  28. The trick of the supposed problems of the registerfly is to steak our domain names, and ICANN.ORG knows it but they don’t do something.

    It is possibly that enom.com is also in this trick, and other companies for example advertising companies etc. They see the big success of google (adsense), yahoo, etc and they try to enter in the advertising in order to steal our domain names and taking advantage of our visitors, they take money from the advertisements.

    The trick is very simple

    They send fake spam email with extremely low prices for transfer and register domain names. After that they grab the customers who transfer the domains to them (the prices are lie because they charge much higher than they said).

    They supposed to have technical problems, economical problems (but all this is a lie because they don’t have staff, everything are automated and they huge profits). The names that are expiring they don’t renew them, so the domain name is expired and it is theirs and in a short time your domain name advertises their collaborators.

    ICANN.org has a huge responsibity because in every email and in their site they alwayw write “ICANN Accredited Registrar”. ICANN.org knows everything about what is happening but they don’t do anything

    This trick works for many years and no one does anything.
    ICANN.ORG says that they aren’t responsible, they know everything or they should know because if someone searches he would find that Internet is full of complaints for registerfly.com and I haven’t seen all their frauds that they have done.

    If someone wants to see which is the purpose, I write that:
    For almost 10 days I send messages to registerfly.com for problems that I have. My domain names are expiring and they don’t renew them, I can’t change DNS to my domain, they don’t send me authorization code and don’t let me unlock them in order to transfer them to other registrar.
    AND WHEN I SEND A MESSAGE TO DELETE ONE OF MY DOMAIN NAMES FROM MY ACCOUNT, THEY DID IT AND THEY ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY

    It was the only e-mail that they answered and after that they disappeared again. Since them I thought that it wasn’t anyone there, and that no one have seen my messages but when they deleted my domain name (of course, they use it for them) they answered immediately, and with this they saw that the watch all the tickets (messages) and they watch and apparently laugh with the despaired web masters who want desperately to renew their domains, but they answer only in messages that will give them more domain names.

  29. Registerfly has hostages million of domain names which belongs to companies and web master all over the world, hiding behind of ICANN and ICCANN don’t do anything.
    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!!!
    Up to two million domain names, including many with associated Web sites, are at risk over the apparent failure of ICANN-accredited domain registrar, RegisterFly.com.
    The company in recent weeks is reportedly almost dysfunctional as customers scramble to register, renew or transfer names. RegisterFly.com’s support systems appear to be down, or completely overwhelmed.
    It appears all domain names with the registrar are locked, preventing clients transferring, or even updating them. Attempts to change the status of domains are being overridden by the registrar.
    Registrars are required to provide owners with authorization codes which are required in transferring to other registrars. These are normally displayed in clients’ accounts, which are accessed by private login and password codes. It appears however RegisterFly.com has stopped displaying the codes.
    Calls to the various telephone numbers nominated for sales, technical support, and billing enquiries are going unanswered. Emails are not being responded to, and the registrar’s online support system appears to be unmanned or so under-resourced it is giving that impression. The company has recently introduced a new fax support system. However faxes are going unanswered as well.
    Customers attempting to renew domains are receiving emails saying their renewals have failed, without any other information or explanation. In some cases attempts to subscribe to other services are unsuccessful with online messages indicating there is a problem with their credit card, or payment is denied. On checking with their credit card provider they are sometimes finding charges have in fact gone through.
    They send fake spam email with extremely low prices for transfer and register domain names. After that they grab the customers who transfer the domains to them (the prices are lie because they charge much higher than they write).

    They supposed to have technical problems, economical problems (but all this is a lie because they don’t have staff, everything are automated and they have huge profits). The names that are expiring they don’t renew them, so the domain name is expired and it is theirs and in a short time your domain name advertises their collaborators.
    RegisterFly.com uses a security certificate to encrypt data during transmission. Pop-up prompts now appearing on its site however are notifying site users that the security certificate, which had 12 months duration, expired on Saturday.
    A major concern for domain owners is that not only are their names at risk, but in many cases those domains involve Web sites.
    A site http://www.registerflies.com has been established for disgruntled RegisterFly.com customers to air their grievances. Curiously http://www.registerflysucks.com is actually registered to, and hosted by, RegisterFly.com itself as a “landing page” or “parked” site. Unfortunately for the embattled company the site features a review of RegisterFly.com which is far from favorable. Reviewer Jim Darson says, “It seems from the comments/emails I have received, that you should definitely stay away from this company. How they have managed to continue operating with all the negative feedback I’ve received is beyond me.”
    One poster, Anon, added, “My account is restricted, my domains are locked, I can’t transfer to another registrar.”
    Adventurepack commented, “These guys are horrible. Besides quadruple charging my credit card without authorization and trying for weeks to get hold of them by email and phone (one time I called on their toll free line at 2 pm central time and was on hold till I came back the next day at 9 am central time). They tried to use a service called stormpay. What a joke. They try to charge you a $12 fee for returning your money that they wrongfully charged you for in the first place.”
    Lee S. said, “They have taken at least three of my names and sold them to other parties. I have always paid my renewals on time, but that doesn’t matter. One of the names they hijacked isn’t up for renewal for three weeks. And, of course, they are still billing me as if nothing is happening.”
    On digg, poster publicXcuse says, “Over the last three or four weeks I’ve tried renewing one of my domains about 10-12 times now and I get a failure every time. Registerfly keeps saying sorry and to try again. It keeps failing it doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon.”
    The problem with RegisterFly.com highlights the vulnerability of domain name owners generally who entrust the world’s approved registrars to act as custodians to what is becoming extremely valuable property.
    The value of domain names has shot higher in recent years, particularly with the proliferation of parked Web sites. Here domain registrars, including the majors, are using their customers domain names to establish advertising vehicles for which they derive advertising revenue. Often the domains are used without the authorization, or even the knowledge, of owners. Some however offer customers participation, but usually at a fee. If customers don’t take up the option, then the registrar often just uses the domain anyway, pocketing the revenue itself.
    The business is so big, one of the majors monetizing domain names, Demand Media, Inc., has acquired two of the largest wholesale registrars, Bulk Register.com and Enom.com. Enom.com had ties with RegisterFly.com, which was one of its resellers for several years (since 2000) until the arrangement was terminated in February last year.
    Founded in April 2006, Demand Media is a next-generation Web media company which has put together more than 150,000 domain names and turned them into niche content Web sites.
    A dilemma for domain name owners is that registrars are becoming increasingly involved in the use and monetization of domain names themselves, raising suspicions when owners are not advised of pending expiries of their domains, and in the case of RegisterFly.com where they are unable to renew or transfer them. (This is monopoly and fraud which is forbidden by the laws of USA) It is unlikely registrars would deliberately engage in practices to pirate domains they are guardians of, but there are many disgruntled former domain owners who blame their registrars for their losses.
    RegisterFly.com is involved in providing what are called, “landing pages,” whereby either text ads relevant to the domain name feature, or unique content is established on the domain page or pages, surrounded by advertising banners or links. The advertising revenue generated in this case goes to RegisterFly.com and owners are not given the opportunity to share in it.
    At least for the past week the monetized sites appeared to be down with the message: “We’re sorry, but something went wrong. We’ve been notified about this issue and we’ll take a look at it shortly.” Some domains are now back displaying text ads again, while others don’t propagate. Meantime a number of domains registered with RegisterFly.com are now pointing to EventRobot pages related to a company that claims to “transform your site or message board into an interactive social networking experience, converting your audience into a passionate community.”
    Problems with RegisterFly.com, which claims to have two million domains under its control through one million customers in all fifty U.S. states and 120 countries, appear to have surfaced long before its accreditation with ICANN and appear to have played a major part in the severing of ties with Enom. As of Monday RegisterFly.com was still listed as an ICANN accredited registrar. The ICANN Web site in describing RegisterFly.com says its, “various products and services is backed by 24/7 World class customer service via phone, live chat and email.”
    RegisterFly.com, which according to ICANN has its offices at 4th Floor, 404 Main Street, Boonton, NJ, also offers hosting services and claims to be presently serving more than 300,000 Web sites. The company claims to be debt-free so it is unclear whether it is undergoing a financial collapse or its technical resources have been exhausted (probably lie). However the longevity of its problems suggest a structural deficiency.
    The claim of registerfly.com by being low profitable business, which leads to bankruptcy or low quality of services, is a lie because they use automated systems, which can be very hi profitable business. Very importact is that the fact until few months ago, they didn’t show any telephone number and you could contact them only through chat or e-mail. Which shows the real low cost of the company. The fact that all this was planned, it can be seen by the fact that now they put telephone numbers on their web site.
    It is very interesting the press office of ICANN:
    ICANN, through its press office, was made aware of the pending publication of this story well prior to the commencement of business on Friday. ICANN was alerted to the claims being made about RegisterFly.com and was asked whether it was prepared to issue a statement concerning the status of the registrar. ICANN was also asked what mechanisms were in place to protect domain owners generally in the event of a default by an ICANN-accredited registrar. ICANN did not respond.

    It is also very interesting that ICANN knows the profits of registerfly but it covers them. Their profit are huge because of the huge number of domain names that they have, the frauds that they have made to the domain owners, the stealing of the domain name, the ads that they are putting there, and the selling of the domain names without notify the owners first. Also they didn’t use any staff because everything was made Registerfly has hostages million of domain names which belongs to companies and web master all over the world, hiding behind of ICANN and ICCANN don’t do anything.

    The claim of registerfly.com by being low profitable business, which leads to bankruptcy or low quality of services, is a lie because they use automated systems, which can be very hi profitable business. Very importact is that the fact until few months ago, they didn’t show any telephone number and you could contact them only through chat or e-mail. Which shows the real low cost of the company. The fact that all this was planned, it can be seen by the fact that now they put telephone numbers on their web site.
    It is very interesting the press office of ICANN:
    ICANN, through its press office, was made aware of the pending publication of this story well prior to the commencement of business on Friday. ICANN was alerted to the claims being made about RegisterFly.com and was asked whether it was prepared to issue a statement concerning the status of the registrar. ICANN was also asked what mechanisms were in place to protect domain owners generally in the event of a default by an ICANN-accredited registrar. ICANN did not respond.

    It is also very interesting that ICANN knows the profits of registerfly but it covers them. Their profit are huge because of the huge number of domain names that they have, the frauds that they have made to the domain owners, the stealing of the domain name, the ads that they are putting there, and the selling of the domain names without notify the owners first. Also they didn’t use any staff because everything was made automatical.

  30. Registerfly.com belongs to enom.com

    Fraud contracts between separate companies, which are separated as a part of a plan, are good ?????? for those two companies to claim that they are separate companies.

    The global plan is very simple, they are stealing our domains and use them by their advertising companies or charge us hi expenses and now no one can help thousand domain owners all around the world. Icann.org, which is the company, which accredits the registfly, doesn’t say anything about the complaints we have made, and the only thing they answered is “we would ask the companies for their relation”. You don’t have to ask the companies because you already know the answer. If ICANN.org understand that they responsible, and they have lead in the trap thousands domain owners around the world, they could look in their files and they would find the relation between enom.com and registerfly.com, and also advertising domains, which are, belong to this group.

    Registerfly.com and enom.com, as part of their plan, claim that they had a contract that it was terminated last year and that they are two independent companies. It is a lie, because as part of their plan it’s only an excuse that they thought when they were planning the condition they made, and the problems they have created to their customers.

    But there are many opinions, which are proving that they are one behind two different companies.

    First of all, until now registerfly.com have a colored big sign in the support page which inform users that the termination of the contract between registerfly.com and enom.com and they write to customers which are registered to enom.com to came in registerfly.com by lower prices. This is just enough to indicate the relationship of those too companies because this colored frame is just an very good advertise for enom.com which takes to enom.com the unhappy domain owners which are desperately trying to escape and go every day in the support page of the registerfly.com. (If they really want to make the least -as the write- domain owners who continue to be registered under enom.com they only have to send them some e-mails to call them change the registry. Even so they sent thousands fake e-mails every week by fake offers, they have all the e-mails of all their customers and they know that the direct e-mail marketing is more profitable than having the message in the complaints screen and wait the customer to complain in which you will never answer and you would wait until they change the main registar)

    It is also good to investigate the progress of the things that lead this problems which is their motivation.

    First of all, we know that until few months registerfly.com was official one of the enom.com Internet domain register web sites as do the most of the registars –who want to go up-. For example goddady.com is a web site of wildwestdomains.com (Wild West Domains, Inc.) and name.com is belong to domainsite.com (SPOT DOMAIN LLC DBA DOMAINSITE.COM) e.t.c.

    Why the registars use other web sites and they show them as independent collaborators? It’s because they want to have different promotion style and different prices through a variety of web sites, in order to have more customers. This was in the start because after this they thought differently. They thought like this, “Why do we give them domain names in which the companies and the web masters to make money?. Let’s steal the domain names and insert ads in order to win more money taking advantage of the bad system of ICCAN.ORG who closes the domain owner to the domain registar and when the domain is expired, it belongs to the registrar

    Enom.com, before a while thought the trick to make independent the company that was under them(registerfly.com), to do what it does today.

    It is also interesting to look in the WHOIS information of the two domains.

    Domain Name: REGISTERFLY.COM
    Registrar: ENOM, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.enom.com
    Referral URL: http://www.enom.com
    Name Server: DNS1.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS2.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS3.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS4.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS5.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Creation Date: 14-aug-2000
    Expiration Date: 14-aug-2009

    Domain Name: ENOM.COM
    Registrar: ENOM, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.enom.com
    Referral URL: http://www.enom.com
    Name Server: DNS1.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS2.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS3.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS4.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server: DNS5.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Creation Date: 24-oct-1997
    Expiration Date: 21-sep-2012

    As we can see from the above, registerfly continues to be registered by enom.com!!! until today.

    If the claims of registerfly.com and enom.com were real, that they have bad relation and they look to take the customers of each other and registerfly was ok with the obligations they had to enom.com, THE FIRST THING THAT REGISTERFLY.COM WOULD HAVE DONE WHEN THEIR AGREEMENT WAS EXPIRED , IS TO CHANGE A REGISTAR OF THE DOMAIN REGISTERFLY.COM!!! THIS IS CLEAR AND PROOVES EVERYTHING. THEY BROKE THE FAKE CONTRACT NOT TO WORK SEPARATE, TO GIVE A BETTER FUTURE TO REGISTERFLY.COM, BUT TO DO ALL THIS FRAUDS TORTURING THOUSANDS DOMAIN OWNERS EVERY DAY.

    As long as Expiration Date of the domain registerfly.com is concerned we can see clearly that expires on 14-aug-2009. This also indicate that is all were already programmed long time ago. BECAUSE ALL REGISTARS ARE HAVING AN EXPIRATION OF THEIR DOMAINS MANY YEARS LATER AND THEY DON’T WAIT TO RENEW THEM WHEN THEY EXPIRE BECAUSE THEY ARE PLANNING TO STAY IN BUSINESS. BUT REGISTERFLY.COM IS ALREADY SHOW THAT IS PLANED TO GO OUT OF THE BUSINESS.!!!

    ICANN.ORG IS THE MAIN RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS TERRIBLE CONDITION BECAUSE IF THEY WANT THEY COULD STOP THIS FRAUD LONG TIME AGO.

    Icann.org cover those crops –and who knows how many others-

  31. About the claims of registerfly.com that the low prices drives the company to this condition is clear that this is jus a stupid claim.

    The prices that charge their customers are much higher than other companies, which with lower prices and fewer costumers survive and have a profit.

    In domain names business, the things are better when you have a lot of costumers like registerfly.com has.
    The prices are not extremely low, for example $9.90 for a new domain and $7.99 for renewal action.(Without considering the thousands of frauds that they had done to the domain owners, in which they took large amounts of money all this years).

    Those kind of business are having much better position when they have so many customers. Their expenses are staying extremely low because of the automatic function which drive everything well. And when the directors want it everything go badly.

    For example a domain company who has a bad financial season, they only have to upgrade the prices by only one dollar. So one dollar is enough by 1 million customers to gives you 1 million dollar extra income every year. Domains owners are not willing to change registrar for 1 dollar upgrade of the prices because any way is much cheaper the prices if a domain owner wants to change registrar every year. (Transfer action is cost 6.99 to many registrars)

  32. Icann.org is the main responsible of registerfly.com fraud (and enom.com and any others which are hiding behind of this big scandal which disparage the reliability ??? the reputation of USA).

    Registerfly.com would not have tried to do all those well-planed frauds if they hadn’t the support of icann.org

    They knew that icann.org would not take off the permission despite the accusations that are coming everyday to them, in which they don’t do anything and they don’t protect the thousands domain owners who are trapped by registerfly.com

    So, they sent fraud emails all the time which are telling for low prices and like that they gather domain names in their account and they don’t let them leave (they don’t unlock the domains and they don’t give author code to transfer them domains to a legal registrar) Also they hi charge credit cards, they charge credit cards without any reason, they let domains to expire without renew them and they keep them for them or they transfer them to enom.com. They sell domains, which belong to their customers, and they keep the money without giving them to the domain owners. I see my domains to be “for sale” in the Internet but I never gave them any authorization to sell my domains.
    They are criminals but icann.org is responsible for all this because they knew everything and they didn’t do anything.

    Thousand desperate domain owners from all over the world are trapped in registerfly.com and icaqnn.org continue to promote registerfly.com (and enom.com) as a good and authorized registrar for the domains owners!!!

    Icann.org must stop immediately the registerfly.com frauds and allow to the domain owners to be transferred in other registrar as soon as possible!!!

    Icann.org must go together with registerfly.com to the curt room!!!

  33. Lástima que me haya enterado tarde… (no hoy pero me enteré hace una semana cuando iba a intentar entrar en mi cuenta para ver porqué no recibía ni publicidad ni avisos del dominio que el próximo martes expira y no puedo renovar porque no tengo acceso a mi propia cuenta).
    De todos modos, ahora parece que la cosa se va solucionado, una vez que han echado a uno de los socios responsable del lío y el resto de los socios han recuperado el control, según cuentan en http://www.registerflies.com/

  34. Registerfly continue their fraud
    All time they do the trick of the repairing of the site, they pretend that they solve their internal problems (financial management etc). However, that’s never come through, so they never sent us author code but they continue to tell us lies about the supposed repairing of the site in order to continue with their fraud.

    The Problems in my domains continue although as they say Medina left. I had renewed some of my domains but they made them to expire and they took for them. Also, they still don’t let me to renew my domains. They don’t send me the Author Code and they don’t unlock my domains in order to be transferred in other registrar. They continue to attack their costumers by sending fraud spam emails by fake prices. (TheFlyPaper.com)

    We login everyday and we send them tickets for our problems but they don’t answer them. Also we sent email to ICANN but they don’t answer and they cover them. They pretend the problems in order to continue their frauds. Thousands domain owners are hostage in registerfly and steal our job our time , our money. Our names goes to enom.com and are managed my advertisers which are connected with them (enom.com is hiding behind registerfly)

    DO SOMETHING NOW. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!
    REGISTERFLY PROBLEMS WILL NEVER EXPIRE, BUT OUR DOMAINS EXPIRE EVERYDAY.

    We mustn’t believe them about the repairing until they solve all our problems.
    WE WILL NEVER SOLVE THE PROBLEMS, ICANN COVER THEM. ALL THOSE ARE PART OF THIS BIG FRAUD.

    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!!!

  35. There are still many problems with Registerfly.
    Well to begin with, I had renewed my domains and they renew them in their database and in the registry. Also they send me email saying that I successfully renewed my domains. However, looking in my account, I see that these domains are expiring. Also they send me email telling me that these domains names are expiring, although I had previously renewed them. When I am going to whois.net, I see that my domains are expiring in 2008. So, they only change their database and made my domains expire in order to take them for themselves.

    Other problem is that, they deselect the auto renew buttons in order to make my domains to expire and to take our domains. I always select the auto renew button and after a while they deselect it.

    FOR ALL THIS PROBLEMS, ICANN IS RESPONSIBLE AND MUST DO SOMETHING. THEY COVER THEM AND THEY DON’T HELP US. OUR DOMAINS EXPIRE EVERYDAY AND THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING. WE NEED HELP AND NO ONE IS WILLING TO HELP US.

  36. Yo tambien estoy acojonado tenia varios dominios con registerfly page hace 1 semana la renovacion de 3 de ellos y ni puto caso ahora el dinero si esta pagado, y encima me pongo en contacto con enom y me dicen que unicamente pueden rescatar 1 dominio. y los demas??? que hago, me dicen en todas las compañias de dominios que no pueden rescatar mis dominios si estan bloqueados por registerfly y ellos no me responden a los emails ni tikects ni nada…. Teneis alguna solucion ?

    Gracias

  37. In 2007-03-30 I opened in Registerfly a Support Ticket in which I said:

    “We want to unlock all our domain and sent author codes in order to move to other registrar.”

    The answer that they gave was

    “Try to do it yourself and the ones that you are not able to do send them to me on a list. You have too many domains and I’m not going to check them one by one.”

    Well I checked my domains and saw that I couldn’t unlock them so I went to support ticket and I send them the below message in 2007-04-04:

    “I tried to unlock my domains but I cannot unlock them.
    I go to each domain and press the Domain Status button in order to change them into unclok but they still remain locked.

    So I want all of my domains to be unlocked and to take the Authorization codes in order to transfer them to another registrar.”

    Even Today (2007-04-18), 2 weeks after my last message, I haven’t got any answer. I still cannot unlock my domains and they don’t help me. They continue to fool me all their customers. They are not willing to unlock my domains and give authorization code in order to leave from them. They keep me and other customers hostages and noone is willing to help us. ICANN IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THIS BECAUSE THEY COVER THEIR FRAUD AND THEY DON’T HELP US LEAVE FROM REGISTERFLY.

  38. Hola, yo tengo 16 dominios registrados en registerfly y es lo peor que podía haber hecho, me han robado un dominio, he pagado el registro de otro y no me lo han registrado, he pagado la renovación de otro y no me lo han renovado, quiero trasladar los dominios a otro proveedor y no me dan los auth codes, en definitiva son unos ladrones por no llamarles hijos de puta.

  39. Puff!! Tengo varios dominios con ellos ¡Y no me deja transferirlos! rechazan el auth code.

    Uno en concreto lo renovaron pero aparece como caducado en el panel, y sin embargo en el whois de rebel.com dice estar renovado hasta el 2008 ¿?

    ¿Qúe pudo hacer? ¿Esperar y pujar en una subasta?

    La madre que los parió…

  41. Al respecto de VDNW os comento mi caso.

    Con fecha de 10 de Mayo procedo a registrar un dominio .mobi en este registrador, sigo todos los pasos y parece que esta todo Ok, no me molesto en supervisar el whois (fallo por mi parte)

    Con fecha de 19 de junio entro de nuevo en la página de VDNW para registrar un nuevo dominio, pero antes entro al panel de control para realizar un cambio de DNS’s sobre el dominio que creía registrado pero, Ohhh sorpresa!! no figura en el listado de dominios.

    Me mosqueo 😡 como es natural, voy a Paypal para supervisar el cobro, ahí está con fecha de 10 de Mayo.

    Siguiente paso, me pongo en contacto con VDNW vía formulario Web y cuenta de correo ‘bill@vdnw.com’ preguntándoles, ¿a ver que pasa?

    Al cabo de tan sólo unos minutos recibo un reembolso de Paypal por el importe pagado, bien, peeeeeroooo ¿y el dominio que no me registraron?, ¿qué paso? pues que vino otro registrador y me lo pisó 🙁

    Resultado: Gran cruz para VDNW, me vuelvo a Moniker y me dejo de aventuras.
