I just want to share what happened to me last night.
I have registered last night domain name via Domainnames.com
At least I thought I did. After registration and billing, i have received confirmation email, but from other company Web.com
I have received welcome email, and login details. Also, in my back statement, it said that company that billed me was Web.com(i have never heard of them before)
I signed in to my account, but there, it said my domain name is not registered with them or expired. Than, i checked WHOIS, and it is really not registered.
I registered domain via yahoo few hours later, and opened a ticket for explanation and refund. And than, 4 tickets after they said they billed me for hosting on Web.com, not domain, even if I never ever heard of them, nor visited their website. I gave my info to DOmainnames.com, and I was redirected to web.com after I paid.
I am sanding entire conversation with web.com below if anyone cares

I have registered domain with DomainNames.com but I have received confirmation email from your company.
I can login to my account for domain I registered, but I cant control domain name as it says that domain is expired or not registered with your company. Also, I cant change nameservers or do anything else.
I have checked and domain appears to be free, not registered(but my credit card is billed)
Do you have any idea what is going on?
Thank you for contacting us today. We appreciate your patience and your continued business. The domain in question is registered to your name through Yahoo. We hope to continue helping you move your business forward. Have a wonderful day.
Yes I know domain registered with Yahoo. I did it last night AFTER I sow that you didnt register domain for me, even if you billed my credit card. I have registered domain name with DOMAINNAMES.COM, but I havent received confirmation mail from them, but from your company(web.com). Also, in my bank statement it says that web.com billed my credit card. But when I entered your user area, it said that domain is expired or not registered with you.
So, what did you take money for? Do you plan to refund?

Hi Thank you for your answer. However, I live in Serbia, and phone call would be a lot more expensive then few dollars you took for nothing. If refunding is not your policy,OK, I lost 3$, life goes on. But you are mentioning my account, and canceling...Can you tell me what exectly to cancel, because I am confused. Can you give me simple and straight answer:
1) Do you accept the fact that you billed me?
2) If you do, what is the service you billed me for?
3) Did I get what I payed for? Thank you Thank you
appreciate your patience and your continued business. You requested from us and we billed you for hosting services. We have not billed you for any domain name registration and you yourself stated our system told you that was the case as well. If you no longer wish to have the hosting only account you opened with our company, then you would have to call the international number I supplied. We hope to continue helping you move your business forward. Have a wonderful day. Matthew F. Web.com
So that is it, I have bought hosting from company whose website I have never visited
That's bad, trying to fit your problem into their canned responses and denying any responsibility. Thanks for the warning. Web.com owns Domainnames.com, they also own networksolutions.com and register.com.
