  1. Even in this case where is the antitrust?!?!
    Where are all the lawyers that populate the domaining industry?!?
    A single company can not have shares in both the auction houses having a monopoly on backorders? We know their monopoly is absolutely real, not even de facto, which anyway would be enough to stop web.com owning shares of both those companies
    They will do every type of tricks, starting from preventing you transferring away domains you catched through namejet and snapnames. Lot of tricks will come….
    Networksolutions and register.com are already scammers when you try to trasnfer out domains. Enom does the same. And now they will become even worse

    Again: where is ICANN?!? Waht a shit of institution became that organization in the last years?

    • “Networksolutions and register.com are already scammers when you try to trasnfer out domains. Enom does the same. And now they will become even worse”

      could you please explain that a little bit more
      thanks for the comment

  2. “A single company can not have shares in both the auction houses having a monopoly on backorders!”

    Sorry, of course I wanted to write an exclamation mark, not a question mark.

  3. Yes, they send you immediately the autchcode, but the little unknown registrars where it seems your catched domains are kept will not approve the transfer promptly or will not approve it at all, trying to let the time pass so thet you will be forced to pay renewal fess 5 time higher than the average price

  4. Network solutions and register are well known to do many tricks: they often force registrants to call them to transfer out their domains. The web is is full of complaints about Networksolutions and register.com.
    Anyway everyone can understand they are not transparent even going through the buying process. The last time I did it I noticed immediately there weren’t the prices clearly indicated before you agree to purchase etc.

  5. I am dealing with this BS now. Lost a domain at NS and they immediately sent it to SN where it is backordered. They are trying to get as much money as they can by bidding themselves on the domain because they know I want it. They can bid as high as they want. They straight out said $300… Since they are just moving money around from bank account to bank account there is no loss of them. Only a win win situation.

    This should not be allowed. Legal action should be taken as this is clearly a monopoly here. Domain names are a companies core.

    What I am dealing with trying to get the domain back feels very ghetto mafioso. Shady to say the least.

    • What do you mean lost? You forgot to renew?
      If the domain is any good then I don’t anyone from SN or NS is bidding you up.
      How many bidders are in the auction?

      What do you mean by “They straight out said $300”.
