Domain Names: A Sneaky Attempt To Take My Name

Written by Charles L. Harmon

If you have a domain name(s) that youíve registered how much thought have you given to who else might wantrepparttar name? That question crossed my mind only inrepparttar 105210 context of - do I have a name that others might like to buy or one that could potentially drive traffic to a website. I was registering many domain names. Some names I wanted to use myself, some to keep, hoping they would go up in value, and others to sell as soon as I could find a buyer. Most ofrepparttar 105211 names I had made up - until it had become difficult to think of new names that had meaning and were not very long. When that happened I started registering expired domain names.

After accumulating several hundred names I decided to take a break and pondered my next move. I didnít have to wait long. Within a week I received a notice from my registrar. It seemed a registrar in Germany had someone who was transferring one of my domain names to their account. How could they get away with that? That was my first experience of having someone steal a name from me. I had heard of such things, but experiencing them first hand is much more real.

I quickly emailed my registrar and asked what was going on and that I had not given anyone permission to take one of my names. I was told my domain had already been transferred to someone else. I gave my registrar explicit instructions to cancelrepparttar 105212 transfer, which they did immediately, and as soon as I gotrepparttar 105213 name back they placed a lock onrepparttar 105214 domain so it could not happen again.

Confident I had solvedrepparttar 105215 problem, that incident quickly left my mind, as I had a myriad of other things to do. But no - things never seem so easy, as I came to realize a couple of weeks later. I checked my email and there was an email from that same registrar, where two weeks earlier someone tried to transfer my domain name. It was a form letter in both English and German telling me they were transferring my domain name to their registry. I asked a co-worker who was German to translaterepparttar 105216 German language part. She verified that language saidrepparttar 105217 same asrepparttar 105218 English version. All my domains were locked so there was nothing I had to do.

By now I wondered how my name,*, which I made up, could be so important. I did some quick research onrepparttar 105219 Internet and found there was a company in Germany withrepparttar 105220 name ~~~~fix. It was starting to aggravate me that if someone wanted my dot com version ofrepparttar 105221 name why didnít they just make me an offer forrepparttar 105222 name. It seemed awfully suspicious that someone wanted that name so badly that they would try to transfer it when it was plainly up for sale. The directory website where that name was hosted showed a for sale notice along with a price.
