Your Questions About Icann Domain Names


Sandy asks…

A hosting company stole my domain name without do process?

I hosted with ait hosting service and when I decided to move my domains to another hosting service they decided to change the registration of the master domain to their company. How can I fight this e legal action? I contacted ICANN but they do not seem to have much advice.

admin answers:

Quite common for hosting companies to offer free domain with hosting, and they retain ownership of the domain. I doubt domain was ever yours to begin with. Too bad, but unethical is not illegal. You will probably find notice of this in all the fine print you agreed to when opening your hosting account.

Your only hope is if your name was listed as owner at the time of registration and they did an illegal transfer, but I doubt it.
