    Default Domains theft

    I would like to bring to your kind notice about the illegal practices committed by Mr. Vibhu rathore of hosting.india.to. a channel partner of Direct I internet services, Public domain registry.

    I have posted complaints on website against the domain registrar for not refunding my amount, which I paid for domain renewal (mshcad.com) a long back, and still I did not get it back from him. Just for posting the complaints he suspended all my domains Flourish.co.in, vivahmantra.com, careermonarch.com, propertyaxis.com for more than a week. When I complained with Direct I he unsuspended them, but in the meanwhile he stole two of my premium domains (vivahmantra.com and propertyaxis.com) I came to know about this on (16/12/2010) when I got the message from reseller club.

    He changed the email Id's sometime back when he had the control panel with him without my knowledge and transferred the domains.

    I requested him several times to give back my domains, but he is turning a deaf ear and wants me to take back the complaints which I have posted on the sites, expecting change in his attitude.


    I don't understand what's wrong if we post a complain against a service provider if we are not satisfied with his services or get cheated by the service provider. After all all this sites and consumer forums are mean for that. I think in our country every one has the freedom of expression.

    So I request all the viewers of this post to beware of service providers like hosting.india.to who don't only steal the money of customer' but also their assets(domains) and don't want any one to complain against their fraudulent and illegal activities.

    Default dummy domain control panel

    Hosting.india.to provides a Dummy domain cpanel where a customer can neither transfer nor move domain nor lock the domain nor renew the domain. He has created domain c panel for the customers under WHMCS Software, so that he can have total control over the domain names of the customer. Just for changing the name server he charges extra amount. Even after taking that, when the customer request him to change the name servers, he directs the customer to go to client area do such and such kind of thing by himself and we (india.to)do not change any settings. I don't understand why he takes the amount for DNS management and mail forwarding, which are free and any one can do if they have the (REAL)Domain control panel and not the one which hosting.india.to provides.

    A customer has every right to have a real domain cpanel of his website with features of domain transfer, moving domain, changing dns records etc

    So, you need to be very careful while registering a domain name which plays a pivotal role in giving an identity to your business.

    Default Re: Domains theft

    The two domains seem to have been moved to Dynadot around Dec 16/2010. The nameservers are the same, but the rest of the whois information has changed.

    At the very least, you should contact Dynadot and ask them to lock the domains pending investigation.

    Best way to tackle such case contact Directi and provide them the proof of your ownership of these domains and once the directi is satisfied they can file a complaint before the ICANN (under registrar dispute resolution policy) and these domains can be taken back.

    Directi always have full details of log of domain changes and they are in better position to judge.

    Or Just call us (No matter if you a customer of Mitsu or not) we will happy to help you out.

    I think you must file an FIR simultaneously (besides raising the issue with Directi), if you think you are innocent. The domain will return to you in any case. But if you take the route of police, the culprit will get the punishment for theft.

    I doubt the following things.

    1. How can someone transfer without the confirmation e-mail from the admin?
    2. In case you have defaulted and the domain got dropped then its a different story.
    3. No reseller can be so stupid to do it. Not only they will be out of business, but can land up in jail.
    4. During "domain push" from one reseller to another of directi, the whois record remains unchanged, this create confusion, sometimes. So double-check that the domain do not appear in your list of domains.

    Lightbulb Re: Domains theft

    Well, everyone has added some extra info for you, but I will talk about something different. Please don't take offence.

    Your domain name would look and spell better if it was
    FLOURISHINFOTECH.com
    instead of
    FLOURISHIT.com

    Because of the nature of calligraphy and the way our eyes group the alphabets, "flourishit" breaks into 3 groups.
    For example, THERAPIST looks like THE RAPIST

    We quickly form mental images of groups of recallable, meaningful word around the 1st syllable from either side of the domain name (minus TLD). This is a very important rule one should consider when creating domains or brand names.

    BTW, why don't you talk to the reseller on phone. I think he's been around for some time.

    Itssri seems to be too polite.

    Your domain will be read as "FLOUR I SHIT dot Com". I too agree.

    I have not posted this thread to get suggestions for my company domain. I have posted it to make people aware about the illegal activities of the domain registrar hosting.india.to. I know who has posted this comment.

    I also have a suggestion for india.to. The domain looks like a beggar begging for alms

    alms. to . beggar
