    50 cent domains

    No...not the rap artist.

    The following was posted to Whirlpool:

    http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum...s.cfm?t=373676

    www.liveregistry.com is selling domains for 49cents but your must remember to put in the coupon bargain.

    I have no connection with liveregistry, I just thought this was a pretty crazy deal and decided to share it with fellow whirlpoolians.

    In short, for 49 cent domains:
    Available: liveregistry.com
    Coupon: bargain
    Ends: 30/7/05
    A good way to invest (a whole 50c) in some domain names.

    liveregistry.com is an eNom reseller, right?
    Co-Founder @HostHideout. Profoundly influenced by #Bauhaus, @Nameslave unrepentantly embraces #Minimalism with a bias for functionality, color theory and pixel precision: a #multimedia messenger in the McLuhan sense. His totally irrelevant M.Ed. dissertation examines Organizational Culture and Change Management. He also likes Patrik Ervell, Wong Kar-wai and IKEA.

    I'd say so looking at the backend (there's some of the default "insert your own witty text here" comments still in place). But it seems legit enough. *shrug*

    50 cents for a domain name Does not seem really to me. Even 1and1 did not do that

    Liveregisrtry.com? Never heard of before.

    After domain hijacking @1und1.com I am very suspicious in registrars. That is a case with liveregistry.com, especially

    (Offtopic)

    when I saw that liveregistry.com web-site design is a MediaTemple.com rip, just like xnet.com is.

    I would be very careful, this registrar has to be making money in some other way if they are taking a $5.50 loss for every domain they register. They may lock you into their registrar, and charge an ungodly renewal rate.

    I assume we will soon hear the feedback

    There's also a whole bunch of liveregistry.com support tickets in the myacen forums. They require registration for it, so I'll just give you a little snippit from a thread:

    is liveregistry.com TOTALNIC/PACNAME?

    Those AU guys can not be trusted. The law there does not inforce anything at all.

    But still, I will register some junk domains and never renew them.

    No as has been mentioned liveregistry is a subdivision of myacen

    We are not asking you to order . I would prefer you don't as you seem small minded. I guess we can't trust muslims also because they are all terrorists give me a break. We have some of the strictest consumer and business laws.

    But still, I will register some junk domains and never renew them.

    Looks like they've been killing orders. Can't say I side with liveregistry on that call.

    At least, they have nearly the same background image for a frame "Register a new Domain Name" with piece of eNom logo on it :-)
    check on eNom home page without signing in.

    "Company" link doesn't work, "Contact us" leads to form page...
    And whois data is protected by Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc.

    Is it making it better that it's a part of myacen or something? Their contacts are also only a form page where you can send them message, and whois data the same....

    50c domains are probably always great but... hmmm what will be next?

    We haven't cancelled any domain names, people that abuse the 1 per customer will be removed from our system and a refund issued.

    For those people that doubt the offer then its simple don't use the coupon and don't sign up. We are not forcing anyone to signup, we are not adding any fees. The offer is a celebration of four years operations. Obviously something so cheap will cause some suspicion on our motives. But I'm happy to say we have no motives. If you want a cheap domain signup if you don't then don't signup it's really as simple as that

    The 50c offer is not as suspicious (especially when only 1000 domains and one per customer) as your hiding information... privacy is good but not at this level... they say internet has no address :-) but internet company probably has got at least one :-)

    Hiding it, together with terms and conditions, etc. is not very kind when people are using their credit cards to pay...

    The same with solidinternet.com.... very solid also protected by Enom on whois data.

    I am not sure if it helps Enom to hide their partners data....

    All this makes people try scam sites all the time, because normally working companies (I hope) are not supplying the full data (adresses, terms, good support). So why scam sites have to give them?

    Look, you don't start a promotion like this and be SHORT SIGHTED enough NOT to setup the registration scripts to only allow the coupon to be used once for a single domain. It's that simple.

    And now you're cancelling orders and issuing refunds to people who are now going to have to wait for the domains they wanted to become available which could take months. Not only is this a VERY bad decision if you want the respect of your new and/or potential customers, but it's just plain WRONG.

    If this is how it's going to be then I would encourage anyone considering any sort of dealings with LiveRegistry and/or myacen.com to turn elsewhere for services they need. I would encourage anyone else reading this to do the same.

    Thanks for reading...

    No, because we didn't process those orders. They are free to go signup at any other registrar. Perhaps next time when you try to make a point you should have the correct facts?

    When a coupon clearly states *1 PER USER* then you either:

    A - Have problems reading clear and concise english
    B - Are trying to take advantage of the generous offer

    You then:

    A - Break the terms and conditions of the offer
    B - Are refunded

    Next time we will offer this to our clients only, obviously people will have a whine about anything. Try and do something for the web users and all you get is criticism.

    Coupon stated 1 per domain.
    Not a problem, no big thing.
    I have another domain registered with you and now can not access it, because it is locked!
    You have been emailed many times about the account lock over many days and have yet to get a response. No even an auto responder.
    Also can not contact support as stated on your site, because I am unable to log in. (Account is not active. Contact support.)
    Maybe it would be easier for you to pm me here. I can see where your site would be flooded with emails at this point!
    No as has been mentioned liveregistry is a subdivision of myacen
    Myacen got the money.
    When the order was cancelled, the email stated the following:
    Please contact the merchant at [email protected] should you have any queries regarding this refund.

    50 cents for a domain name?

    If a domain name cost a registrar around 6.25 at minimum what incentive do they have to sell at such a steep loss?

    It was a promotion, for a short period of time. I think Robert said it was also in conjunction with them being in business for 4 years, or something like that.

    It says the post has been deleted, so either it was a scam or the person has decided to delete the thread after the offer expired?
