  • Off topic: chief hit with federal criminal charges

    Ms Howell:

    I hope that you will look into the criminal charges filed late last week against one of the two owners of by the other. (See .) After more than a year of user complaints to Registerfly, eNom, and ICANN, it seems that Registerfly management has lost access to its operational servers. Users allege that Registerfly refused to renew their valuable domain names, instead selling them unlawfully to to other registrars. Communications are desperate on all sides. has become the sole point of communication in the last few days, because Registerfly management doesn't seem to have control over its own servers.

    I'm one of thousands who have lost domain properties to Registerfly, and would appreciate a professional eye on this topic.

    Thank you.
