hey guys, i've been lurking around, and after reading all the fairly positive reviews on moniker, i decided to register my domain with them.
however, while trying to register the domain, there was an error with my credit card, which had a msg saying that they would resolve it within 24-48 hours. i tried again a few more times, but still failed, so i sent an email to support. that was 2 days ago.
today, my friend tried to register for me using his card instead, directly through moniker, and found that the domain was taken! by belgiumdomain no less, and it's now full of links.
note that all times, i was trying to register directly off moniker's site, so if there's any domain grabbing involved, it probably came from moniker. be careful guys. just thought i'd share my experience.
