    New name regged at Enom, highjacked?

    I've just registered a name at Enom. When I try to access it with my browser I get to a search page with a link at the top saying "Why am I seeing this web site?" going to "mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Inquiring about the domain '*.com', with status: Registered".
    All links at that page point to "http://www1.eta.us" with the keyword in the link.
    I've checked that the nameservers are the Enom's default.
    Now what is this all about, is it highjacked or something?

    Thank you for your opinion on this.

    This domain is not hijacked and should be visible in Domain Manager in your control panel. You are currently using Enom nameservers and their free parking page for your domain. You can turn free parking off or configure it to other nameservers by accessing your domain from Domain Manager.

    Click on 'my Domains' > under 'Domains' to access all your domains.

    Thank you mdadnan!
    I do have several other names at Enom and that search page is not what I ususally see as the free parking page. All other parked domains have another one.
    Anyways, now I've added my own DNs and the domain name is working and pointing to my new site.

    you can set the default nameservers with enom so whenever you register a domain your nameservers will be used not enom's

    Thank you Bashar!

    But I don't have own nameservers for every domain name. In fact, my other parked domains, although they are configured to use Enom's namesrvers, they don't show that search page. Is this thing new? If so I don't think it's a good idea that Enom try to "make money" by using other's domain names without the owner's permission. Maybe I'm wrong..

    He he he, remember that domain owners are only leased the right
    to use the domain name they choose. The registrar has almost
    every right to do with the name as they see fit within reasonable
    grounds, especially if so stated in their legal fine prints.

    You're not wrong in the sense that we don't have to agree with
    what they do. But we practically agree to it when we click on the
    box beside the "I have read the service agreement and agree to
    its terms".
