  • Beware of registrar

    This is a warning to everyone to avoid the registrar They are currently engaged in a huge controversy because they are refusing to relinquish domain names without ridiculous requirements, such as notarized letters and documentation sent to an Australian address, that often aren't even acknowledged. Some people get outright refusals from TotalNIC to transfer. In short, this is a company you want to stay away from!

    There is a long thread about it here

    and also, the Internet news site The Inquirer did an article on it here

    If you unfortunately have a domain registered with TotalNIC that they refuse to give up, I would suggest you contact ICANN at

    and CORE at

      I've sent in my complaints a couple weeks ago already. Those bastards will go down screaming from the looks of things. Every msgboard I go to has something about these guys.
      Well, there it is.

        I heard a lot about them.

        They are famous for not allowing any kind of transfer with reasoning that they can not verify your identity which happens to 99.9% of their customers who wish to move off their domains. hehheh

          My question is, if they really do care so much about "security" why don't they make you jump through the same hoops to transfer a domain INTO their registry?
          Well, there it is.
