||an enforcable code of practice needed for registrars
It's time for registrars to be made to operate according to a code of practice that
will protect the consumer.|
I know in the eight months of intensive hunting for
one-name-once -only .info cueues to preregister the names I wanted most - I became
disbelieving at some of the stunts that some registrars were performing and increasingly
angry that these registrars were being permitted to stand in the market place and
rip-off the unsuspecting.
I can remember feeling that I had been stung when dealing
with Freeregistration.com - apparently an E-name Co affiliate - that when preregistering
and without forewarning - my credit card was first hit for a Deluxe (read - one name
once only cueuing) Service USD$19.95, then immediately for an additional USD$16.95
for what - for pre-registration VERIFICATION!!!!!
God help us. We deserved
better. We first had to swim through the sharks - then we had to deal with
a registry Afilias and then the governing authority ICANN ho are dealing with us
in the same way.
By the way - it will come as no surprise to you that that all
my names preregistered and VERIFIED through Freeregistration.com/E-Name Co were registered
to fraudulent applicants in the Sunrise.
