Any suggestions on moving a domain from a hostile host? (Dot5)
Feel free to mock me, but I did register with Dot5 a year and a half ago, when it wasn't clear to everyone in the known universe that they were incompetent criminals. For about a month now I've been trying to get them to update the e-mail contact records on my domain LakersTalk.com so that I could move the domain over to an honest registrar -- they're simply refusing to do it. I have until October before my 2 year registration is up, so I'm not panicking, but I would appreciate any suggestions. Someone mentioned ICANN for domain name dispute resolutions, but I've gone over their site and don't see where I'd register for that.
Anyone with first-hand experience with this issue, I'd sure appreciate some feedback.
If dot5 are not the actual registrar (they're not an accredited registar, are they?), you should be able to have the contacts changed by the registrar by suppling them with sufficient proof of identity as long as the domain was originally registered in your name.
