I got a quick question: I own a domain on GoDaddy, is there a way I can change the 'icon'?.

I also got another question: I didn't authorize the transfer. I went to Biglizarddomain to check my domain, and it's still there. Did someone hack into my account to initiate this transfer? Am I safe? What actually happened?..

Your question was: I own a domain on GoDaddy, is there a way I can change the 'icon'?.

Yes, I have sent an email to GoDaddy asking who requested the transfer from Biglizzarddomain.

I also quickly locked my HostGator at Biglizzard. I left it unlock while changing the DNS from Bodis to Parked. I had to change too many DNS that day and I must have forgotten to lock the HostGator after I changed the DNS...

Well thats all good then !!!.

Noone can take your HostGator unless you provide an epp / auth code to them to initiate the transfer or accept the transfer...

Comment #2

They are not likely to give you that information but I would insist that they keep a note of it for you.

I had the same thing happen recently and asked them to do this, it may be just a mistake but if they can proove it's the same person doing it many times then maybe they will look into it would hope.

Just keep it locked !.

Delete the email, and go on.....They wont take it unless you give them permission, so dont give permission...

Be very careful. How the transfer process usually works is once they request it, you would forward that email you got to the buyer and they would enter in the info. Now if your email was hacked, they may have already seen the info they need to transfer it, and you could lose your domain.

Just for safety sake, I would change your email password and contact support...

Seems odd that a hacked email would result in something like this. But definitely possible...

Comment #6

They're not going to do anything against the perpetrator. No registrar on this.

Earth has any incentive to do so...yet...

Comment #7

Hmm that is really sad, as the new registrar should atleast provide the owner the identitfy of the person who initiated a transfer of Your domain.

After all, if someone does start thetransfer process, his identity should eb amde available to the seller (owner)...
