Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Have you tried contacting them to see what's the issue?..
That is one serious Offense..What have you done afterwards....
Jakey, how did they hijack it? Was your domain locked? Did you approve for transfer?..
Well basically, ive lost my main website / project. Ive sent them and email about 3 days ago with no respond, ill have a nice chat via PHONE with them...
SO, did you lose it or did they take it?.
My next question is how you lose a DN?..
They took it.
I purchased everything, and they set it up for me, xignahosting.com, and now I have nothing =/ They changed the nameservers and now it's NOTHING! everything ive worked on for about a year = GONE!..
It doesnt like like it expired, it is soon. I hope it was something crazy and they give it back!.
Let us know what happs.
NameCheap = reseller for Enom. And check into it fast, as domain expires on the 23rd of this month..
Yes, namecheap....but it will be hard to prove. Roll up your sleeve and be ready to give a blood sample............
Yes, but I doubt eNom will do anything about it...
What I want to now is how did the take his domain...He must have approved the transfer..
If you registered the domain name and signed up for webhosting with xigna, it.
Appears they registered the domain name under their name instead of yours: http://www.iwhois.com/index.php?doma...Lookup&clean=1 If the person listed above is the owner of xigna, his blog is lukedyson.com...
Sounds somewhat familar, I got a free .name from 1and1 and when they registered they put themselves at the sponsoring owner..now they refuse to let me have access to the name even though it is still registered in my name....Watchout for compnaies offering free domains with a purchase of a hosting plan...
This is why you NEVER register a domain at a host. EVER!.
They usually use their info or have a reseller account which doesn't give you proper control. It's best to use an accredited registrar then find a host. They should be seperate purchases. I know some registrars offer hosting and some hosts offer registrar. For some reason it's never a good combination...
Hey Labrocca... I completely agree.. I believe that's 2 in a row..
WebHostPlus.com owns XignaHosting.com.
Which is where I bought my hosting..
Quite a number of clients purchase domains through me simple because it's easier for them to buy through me than it is to scower web for low prices. I then register it for them at one of the good sites, usually godaddy, domainsite, etc, and just push them the domain. If they don't want to pay, I link them to a good registrar. Some hosts hold the domain, if so, that just means they're not the best host. But not all hosts will withhold domains from clients!.
Oh, haha, look what I just found. http://www.webhostplus.com/cp-plus-hosting.asp.
Look at the screenshot, at the right - it actually says, "License: trial"..
