I would like to analyze data that I my self have investigated about various registrars, for this case i will take opensrs platform & myvaluehost as the provider.
I have registered a domain for my friend with myvaluehost as at that time I still didnt have my own opensrs account (reseller). My friend asked for a .net domain even that .com & all other were empty.
After the registration, i recieved alot of spam to my mail that i have specially created for this domain, I NEVER ever used this email or told anyone about it, in other words it was like a password that is only known by me. All the spam email were saying:
In the subject: *the name of my domain*, is it your right??
In the message: It was a long message saying everywere my name, my domain saying that you can make $1000 etc... this is the first step proving that it came from myvaluehost and/or its affiliates.
The second thing is that after 3 days, the .com domain was up, & parked at domain sponsor, i was intrested in seeing the whois, it was empty, after a day, the whois was there, but proteceted, only saying that to contact the admin & his email, which was something like this: [email protected]
saying that it will expire after 5 hours & come back to see a new email.
After 5 more days, there was no whois & no domain, i mean it was empty again????
Anyone can explain this miracle??
I can, they checked if the domain gets traffic, if yes they would leave it, if no they removed it & cleaned at the footsteps, since they have access to the registry.
Thats what happens now adays with domains.
