I got a client and he said he already has registered his doamin from some one in their city and he is not happy with their service and want to change the hosting. He contact them and they said they will not release doamin to him for transfering.
I look the whois and found all informaion of their current provider. as those are in their local market and making trouble with the owner (Owner in a sence because this is the truth owner and paying them yearly charges for it)
Now the problem is how to release the domain from them by legal way. Is there any way other then contacting their current provide as the will not going to agree and they chagred the client to continue their website for one month $200 as the hosting was expired.
Their current provider are very stupit and really do not care about his situation and just Pusing him by creating trouble that it will continue with them because he have mentioned this domain on may place such as business card, company later hed etc....
Any one help how to solve this guy trouble with their sick hosting provider?
There are some Host Terms of Service that make it clear that the company owns the domain if you buy it through them at the time of buying the hosting package.
Have you checked the TOS? If it doesn't say the domain belongs to them then you'll have a better chance.
With the contact information set to the host, your friend is going to have a hard time. This might be a good lesson to play nice until after you've gotten control of your domain. I'm nto trying to rub it in but in case somebody else ever reads this post, you really ought to think twice before leaving your domain in the hands of anyone else because it is really hard to do anything.

domain legal channels wont help much in this case (suc has WIPO etc..) but speaking to a lawyer in their country could help this situation and need to reivew the TOS real clear to make sure he can get his domain back...
