    Domain Name: .COM
    Registrar: TUCOWS INC.
    Whois Server: whois.tucows.com
    Referral URL: http://domainhelp.opensrs.net
    Name Server: NS1.SEDOPARKING.COM
    Name Server: NS2.SEDOPARKING.COM
    Status: redemptionPeriod
    Updated Date: 28-may-2007
    Creation Date: 15-apr-2005
    Expiration Date: 15-apr-2007

    This is my old domain, I'd have like to have kept but missed the renewal, tucows has changed the nameservers to sedo. They're controlling my domain before it would seem it has dropped, can't I sue them? can't they be reported or is it theirs to do what they wish now?

    I think it's basically theirs to do what they like while it's in redemption Lee. You just have to cough up the usury fee to get it back. Still, bad tactics on their part if you ask me.

    It was with ukreg, and they have changed the nameservers to sedo to domain taste in advance of it dropping so presumably domcollect can pick it up if it's worth anything. I'm making a complaint, scum.

    It showed a sedo parking page not so long ago, I thought it strange it only clicked tonight whilst drinking, so see what reply I get. The next complaint goes to the top bods.

    Cheers

    try a) submitting the domain to sedo listings - and sedo will have to give you the commission

    b) contacting nominet, as you may be able to do a tag change then a renewal, - they usually ask for an £80 renewal before the tag change but if you ask nicely and on the online form (old one - I have no idea about the new one), you click through to change tag, and renew etc and then at the end it says something like "get new registrant to pay for the renewal" - click that and you get the tag change and the cheaper reg.

    I did something similar with my own TAG but you may be able to do it through a third party TAG.

    Oi, I'm the one that's drinking, it's a .com, good idea with the adding to sedo, I'll do it now, although it is in redemption and there's no whois.

    Sorry Lee

    I thinks that is why we all hate .coms no nuggets of traffic, industrialised domain tasting that is a real joke, the registrars are all bent and keep anything that is about to drop themselves if they think it is worth anything.

    You complain bitterly in this forum about Nominet - it could really be lot worse ....:(

    About your problem with 2cows - hope they all get BSE. All the UK registrars seam to use 2Moos for their .coms and charge you twice what you would pay with GoDaddy i.e. think $ and £ get reversered somewhere down 'the reseller chain' The cheapest so far that seam to do a decent job that I have found is FXDomains (Wild West Domains) which is about third cheaper than GoDaddy per year, but user interface is exactly i.e. it is 'white label' site of what Godaddy use.

    Best Of Luck Mate.

    Nominet just shoot themselves in the foot, ukreg, sedo and domcollect are just bent and people on here still use them.

    Here's the two replies, openly admitting that they misuse the domain at their will whilst at the same time charging you £200 to get it back. Please note the relationship between UKreg, Sedo and Domcollect. Do you think this is fair and correct? Are they not breaking any rules? In my eyes, they're scum.

    And the complaint sent to escalations after support bottled it.

    Time for Jackanory


    So UKReg and sedo have a deal to direct domains they don't own to sedo's parking pages just for a little top of click throughs and the money goes straight to sedo. Nice, so customer buys domains, then ukreg hijacks the domain during limbo and sedo earns money. All these scams, and they're all legit?

    And a little warning, ukreg scum, not only charge you £200 to get your domain back, but now they also remove it from the account the day it was due to be renewed in the hope you forget all about it while they taste your domain. So who tells the truth right now, internic whois or tucows, did it renew or didn't it?
