Can some of you recommend a good offshore registrar that will not suspend domain names, and sides with their customers?..

Comments (11)

Well I assume registrars do not usually suspend domains without any good reason. Also, why would they stand by your side if you're a customer that earns them just a few $ per year and brings a lot of trouble ?...

As far as I know there was only one bullet proof registrar, EstDomains, and ICANN de-accredited them. For years they were the registrar of choice for extreme criminal behavior...

Offshore registrar,.

Maybe you mean overseas registrar, where are you from? I'm just a domains provider in China...

A couple of months ago I bought 2 domains with a Europen registry with the .de extension. They stated that they could register them for me with a partner registrar. Then a week later they got back to me and said I could not have them. I then checked the who is and see they had been registered. I feel they just plain stole them off me. I had translated a couple of not bad domains into German.

I just use my own hosting company now. I can buy .de through my registrar...

No one can recommend anything specific? I am in the USA, and I prefer to have no US presence. I want a registrar thats affordable, trustworthy, and sides with customers FIRST with matters concerning abuse. (no I'm not a spammer, it's a principle issue)..

I think many registrars will side with their clients first but if shown legitimate proof of a problem and proper legal channels taken they'll take the site down.

It's registrars like Godaddy you have to really worry about. They have a history of siding AGAINST their customers in the most absurd circumstances...

Its so funny you say that, because GoDaddy is exactly why I am seeking a new registrar. I am moving all my domains away from them. I purchased a domain name (keyword) for 3 thousand dollars. It did not violate a trademark, and is the pharmacy niche.

So I had the page parked at godaddy, and the FDA sent a letter to them saying I was directing traffic to online pharmacies that were not safe. They took the domain name. But the thing is, it was parked at GoDaddy. They were showing the ads not me, I never even touched the domain name. wont help, they told me I need to contact the FDA. I did, and they told me to contact godaddy and they had nothing to do with the site being taken from me.

Anyhow, anyone have suggestions on good registrars please post...

Using a foreign registrar is one thing. It means they are less vulnerable to US-based threats. However, if you reside in the US (as confirmed per whois) then you are still subject to US law....

For serious stuff you may consider using a foreign registrar and incorporating abroad as well. As long as you are on US soil you need to cope with the BS from the government.

Here is a horror story involving Enom: US based registrar Enom seizes Cuba domain names of British citizen | Cuba Forum by Havana Journal..

Comment #8 wouldn't have done that. Most registrars would not have in fact. I still don't see why some domainers use Godaddy. Proven time and time again to screw over domainers when it matters...

Comment #9

When the kentucky gambling issue happened Go Daddy & Enom failed miserably, Network Solutions, Fabulous and Moniker did a good job. Personally I like Fabulous but I still do have a few hundred with GoDaddy as well...

Comment #10

Again, none. It's case to case, but none will even always side with the customer first...
