My friend had a pretty successful makeup blog. She used blogger and registered it through them using google apps, google apps used enom at the time. Because of problems being able to sign into her google apps account she was unable to renew her domain, she tried asking enom for help renewing it, they were no help whatsoever. On september 23rd it got updated to a new owner with the whois hidden. The domain now has a parking page with "The domain may be for sale. Click here for details." Which leads to a contact form on acquirethisname.com From what I can gather acquirethisname is just a subsidiary of enom. I find it very unsavoury that enom hide behind acqiuirethisname to try and sell people back the domains they had registered with them. What are the options for her apart from making an offer and trying to buy the domain back? The domain name itself is very specific to her and her blog, it's not generic or of any value to anyone else (apart from it's links) Would she have unregistered rights? and could see pursue it legally.. but I guess that would end up costing a lot a money even if she could. Has anyone dealt with acquirethisname before? Thanks.
