Hello Josť. I have heard many similar complaints from many people regarding this
particular registrar, 5007-TU.|
If you look up some generic names at Afilias through
the whois there, you will find many names registered by this same registrar with
unknown tm and 2040 date. There are also many names with just fake information. I
have been informed by many people that this registrar sent out emails trying to convince
registrants prior to the start of sunrise to not use the landrush but instead to
submit all their names into the sunrise with that registrar because Afilias is not
checking apps and because no one will challenge because they have nothing to gain
and will even have to pay a fee.
Here is a small part of an email a few people
have sent me:
WHY SHOULD I PLACE MY DOMAIN IN THE SUNRISE?
Why not! Did you know that during land rush your
odds of getting any of your names
is less than 5% with
any registrar! However during sunrise your odds
**** is as high as 80%. Why?
Because the registry is not policing sunrise
must ask yourself: Is it worth $105.00 to
register and another $220.00 if challenged?
The answer is clear when you weigh it against NOT
the name at all. Because you can bet at
landrush the name will be gone,
or you will be left
with only a 5% chance of success in obtaining your
**** is making good on its promise to
register domains at the earliest possible
That time is sunrise. Remember anyone can register at
The people that should definitely NOT
register at sunrise are those that want
to register a
name with a trademark.
More importantly, a challenger CANNOT take
from you. A
challenger can only have your domain sent back
again, this means a challenger has little
principal AND if they have expendable
income to the
tune of $295 per
challenge. Would you challenge a non-trademark
for $295 just so
can no longer own pingpong.info?
blatantly shows that the problem here is with Afilias's sunrise polices.
