What would you guys do if you bought a domain from someone. Then a year/2 years later, the person who originally sold the domain to the person you bought it from went and sold it again..

And to make it worse, it was at ipower who seem to have the most unhelpful customer service team. I was a *bit* stupid, and left all the account settings alone (yes... including the password) which means I don't know the answer to the secret question, which means they refuse to help at all...

What would we do???.

Mmmm..... tricky one. Probably start by asking the doctor to make sure all the shrapnel fragments had actually been removed from the remaining 25% of my brain..

Or cut back heavily on the meth...

It was fine for a year or two! I think I probably just gave up even if I did try - I remember ipowers control panel being very useless. wish I had just transferred the domains away from them.....

Comment #2

That *bit* is one of the biggest euphemisms I've ever heard..

Comment #3

I would put together all the documentation you have from when you purchased the domain and submit that as proof of ownership and see how that goes. If it does not work out with them, you can potentially pursue it with Internic I believe...

Comment #4

I would chuck it up as a loss and DOS the domain and spam it and XSS it and Inject it until I got bored or they gave it back...

Comment #5

So you just used their account which the domain was in the whole time instead of getting the domain pushed to your own account?..

Comment #6

Hi first off thanks for having me here. In response to your question ill make sure I kept all purchase information and see if I could take legal action. I might even try to contact the other person who has been sold my domain and try to negotiate...

Comment #7

As far as I can work out they each had their own login (each domain had their own user/pass). But the domains were also in a main account of the original owner. Thats what i've worked out - it doesn't make sense and i'm not 100% sure I believe it..

Now one of the guys is trying to sell it on, making it even harder. And the owner of the other domain isn't replying. Will give him a call tomorrow if no reply (from uk, so bit of a pain which is why I haven't done it yet).

Ipower are taking forever to reply, too, making it harder..

Wouldn't really care if it was some of my domains. but quite want these.....

Comment #8

Uh, it's not ipower's fault. That's the equivalent of buying a car and not transferring the title... Did you even update the domain contact info? If so, there's a bit of proof that the domain was yours. If you're not using the domain and it wasn't worth too much, I'd walk away and cut your losses - making a point to not be *stupid* in the future.....

Comment #9

Pretty sure the contacts were updated (as the email address was as I got emails regarding it (renewal emails etc) through).

It wasn't worth a great deal (not thousands or anything! (haha I wish!), but seems they were sold on in mid $xxx range (bit annoying too as I only just found out - didn't realise they were worth more than about $50...), but still not something I want to lose like that. and it had a developed site on it...
