I registered a domain with Register.com. But it still shows up as available. It doesnt even show that a request is pending. Thats unbelievable. I contacted them but they havent replied.
I wouldnt use them.
Its a .dk for Denmark. I know it says it takes 24-72 hours to get active but shouldnt it be blocked for others to register. I typed in the name and hit check and it says its available so i clicked on register and it would have let me register it again isnt that strange?
This has happened to me on a couple of domains. I was allowed to register a domain, which appeared as available, but in reality was not. What happens is that when the name is registered but not filtered down the first one to register it gets it. The others that come later get rejection notices.
i have used register.com a few times, mainly for dropped domains, and it processes as if you have the domain registered, but later you find out that you didnt get it.
Kind of an unusual system, but register.com are not a bad company.
I contacted them but they havent replied.
They usually reply, they just take a little longer than most other companies, they are a lot better than network solutions, at least with register.com someone will actually email you with a response.

My first post here because I can't stop myself from responding.
Last november (2001) I tried to register 22 .biz domains at namebargain.com(a regsiter.com company) soon after the launch of .biz . They charged my credit card for all 22 domains and actually registered only one domain against my order. When I contacted them with support ticket they told me domains were not available. When I asked them about charge on my CC then they registered 19 more domains in my name and accepted their error some 6 days later.
There was no reply to my emails and support tickets for refund of 2 domains that they failed to registered (those 2 domains were registered by someone else when namebargain was sleeping on my order).
Finally I got the refund for 2 domains in march, 2002 (after 3 months + ). That too after I started some 20 support tickets (most of the tickets were closed without any action).
What I learned from my experience? Stay away from register.com and namebargain.com at any cost. They are big brothers of netsol.
I tried to register a .dk domain with register.com they charged my credit card and then i got the email below.

I wrote them 2 times telling them i dont see any reason why i should have to fax them my id and stuff because i think thats very strange. After my first reply the only thing i got was a Final Notice.
Then after my second reply i got an email telling me they removed all my rights to the domain.
