*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Domainsbyproxy hard to cancel!!
*Consumer Comment: Perhaps you need more sleep
On Sunday March 14, 2010, (in the wee hours of the morning) I decided to register a domain with Godaddy. I have about 12 domains registered with them. I entered the name aestheticdesigns.com in their domain search box and all the TLDs including .com, .org, and .net were available.
I hesitated making up my mind on the purchase because there were offering sale on some TLDs.
Thy then asked me to sign in. I did and a confusing occurrence took place.
A banner with a handshake graphic advised me that aestheticdesigns.com, .org. and, .net is taken and that if I want them I have to pay $69.99 just to start the process to get them.
I checked, through godaddy, for the owners and found that DOMAINSBYPROXY just bought them. I became suspicious and checked on the web and discovered that it was owned by godaddy.
When I began hosting with Godaddy, I recommended them to others because I was happy with the service.
I am hurt and angry that anyone could be so GREEDY and Bad-minded, UNETHICAL, DOG-MINDED!
I had a problem with them before. I registered a domain with Wild West Domains and could not get it cancelled at all. They kept renewing it even though the credit card info was outdated. I searched and discovered that Wild West was owned by Godaddy, so I cancelled all the cards GodADDY had on file.
Wild West almost gave me a nervous breakdown. They sent me emails and when I replied, they responded that they did not know that email address. I called their number and they said I do not have authoritythey did some strange and cruel things to me. I finally sent godaddy and email and they released me.
Let Bob know that he will die and leave that money. I know that for sure.
