This is actually for a friend so it should be who's his registrar. He's having problems where he says that when he tried to update/change the nameservers he was told that he couldn't because his domain expired. Well doing a whois at NetSol states that his domain doesn't expire for another year!
So now I'm thinking that maybe his host is hiding whom his real registrar is. I had sneaky crap like that happen to me before I learned to always keep my registrar and host seperate. I had a host that charged year of hosting at once. When they stopped hosting I did a chargeback on my credit card, only to find out that my genericly named "domain" on my credit card was really for a registrar called "itsyourdomain.com", for whom my company was just a hidden registration affiliate. Well since itsyourdomain had no responsibility for my host stealing my money, they revoked my domain and I got screwed even worse, having to pay $60 penalty plus the original charge again, just to get my domain back.
Anyway, somebody helped me out last time by somehow finding out who REALLY is the registrar. I can't find it for my friend and think that he may be in a similar situation. Can somebody knowledgable please tell me if you can figure out the REAL resgistrar for DeltaXi.org. The only thing I can figure out is his host name.

Just because the domain is registered for another year doesn't mean your friend has any rights to it...it probably did expire. When a domain expires the registry adds another year to it, giving the customer a chance to re-register it. If they don't renew the domain, the registrars money will be refunded and the domain will drop.
