Phil Shapiro, webcountry.net, one dollar hostingtarzana, California United States of America
Okay I purchased a domain about 8 years ago from a company called webcountry.net who also owns a small hosting company called One Dollar Hosting. 8 years ago there prices were great and they were doing really well. I purchased a .ro extension which according to them is a one time purchase. After I paid for it once I own it for the rest of my life. Then I got my hosting through them as well.
Turns out when I purchased my domain it was placed under Phil's name leaving me no access to the domain at all. He did not place it under my name even though it was my purchase. I recently switched my hosting to godaddy. I spoke to Web Country and they swear up and down that they are not able to transfer the name servers because I purchased the domain from Romania and they didn't have anything to do with the company that I purchased it from. When clearly my receipt states I purchased it from Web Country.
So I contacted ROTLD.ro the Romanian domain company and they specifically show email@example.com as the sole contact and owner of my domain.
So long story short he lied to me about my domain purchase 8 years ago and is keeping it and not allowing me to change my nameservers so that I have to keep paying for his now overpriced and really bad hosting.
