Why should they?
IMO, a reseller should have no say for transfers, and certainly no veto power. A message from onlinenic? Perhaps, but me, I am not shocked at all. I have problems with a reseller (mydiscountdomains) and the parent registrar Itsyourdomain turn a blink eye... so I have no particular sypathy for resellers (of course not all).
i agree that icann accreditation is not a guarantee per se (godaddy, itsyoudomain, totalnic are horrible) at the same time namecheap is really great... nothing is black or white.... just ICANN *should*, at least in theory provide an extra "legal" protection as they are under direct supervision by icann (that seems to be a rather lazy bureaucracy)
I hope icann will be replaced by a UN agency soon and that resellers will be accountable as everybody should. But that is an other debate.
Originally posted by lemel One of my hosting provider friend mentioned that the domain registrar Onlinenic does not bother to inform its Resellers if any of the domains are being Transferred out.
Is it true?
Up to a month ago neither did enom. They just started doing it
it seems to be a great option, but on second thought, it would definitely add up to the difficulty for the end users to transfer their domains to other regitrars. It's just hard to balance between the interest of the resellers and the end users......
