Well, try to work with DomainSite in a civil manner (tall order, I know). And it's.
Debatable whether what they did is legal or not, but your contract with them.
Can give you a few ideas.
Unfortunately there's no consistency on how phishing cases should be handled.
Uniformly, depending on each case's severity. Some will notify, others won't.
Hope it works out...
Then you know what to do, Otto. Good luck...
It has to do with your hosting provider and work with your hosting provider if they/you can trace the phisher's ip address and where did it host the phishing site itself give this to domainsite.com with screenshots and other proofs and advise domainsite.com that you don't participate in these things and have terminated and blocked that particular ip and all you want back are your other domains not used as a phishing site, it could work...
I don't know if it's justified from the Registrars POV or not ... But we all know the problems that Phishing has and can cause.
Someone got access to my Ex-Host's servers last year (Above my access) and implanted some Phishing pages within my own sites - After several Strong emails and calls to me from a few Banks etc ... I pulled the plug on the whole Hosting plan. I even lost a few sites over it where I hadn't backed up everything as well as I should have - But there are no real complaints from my end ... Phishing sucks overall.
Hope all works out for you Zest..
The hosting provider: is my self. I have access to all my servers, and an abuse team (24/7) that removes accounts as soon as we get notification.
Domainsite, even though the site was removed 2 minutes after notification from Ebay directly to our abuse team, suspended us from our account. I don't even know why Domainsite had to react. Maybe they didn't check that the site no longer exists already. They did not follow their TOS and notify us for their actions, which is a big no-no.
Also, I've contacted ICANN and Moniker about this. Hopefully, they can help resolve this. No support since 2 days ago; ignoring all my emails. No one picks up the phone either...
Maybe they're trying to become another gd..
As i've said these phishing pages are in your hosting account if you're the provider and you terminated the abusive pages, then you're clear the domain has nothing to do with it.
Icann needs to step in, pls. be reminded I'm not a legal person...
Just an update: I finally got access to my domains except the one that violated the rules. I'm going to see if they're going to give me notification, so I can at least obtain back my domain name...
That's good progress. Just a heads up that they might ask you to sign a form.
"promising" you won't use the domain name for phishing, as I have seen other.
Registrars doing that.
If I understood that portion you quoted here, that specifically handles DMCA.
Complaints, not phishing. It's debatable, but that can only be answered in a.
Court of competent jurisdiction.
OTOH, it doesn't necessarily have to lead to that if DomainSite will work with.
You. They might make an exception if you're somehow able to "prove" to them.
You proactively deal with phishing as well...
Just a clarification, what you posted is part of the DMCA... aka copyright infringement takedown procedure for web hosts. Not Phishing.....
