||I have only had a few dealings with RegistrarsAsia. I gave
up waiting for them to come on stream with an exclusive cueue for .info in the leadup
to the .info Sunrise. I think they got their .info approval late. I didn't
buy any more Landrush preregs after SpyProductions first email recommending that
to have any chance of the Landrush name we wanted, we had better submit a fraudulent
I did do business with RegistrarsAsia when Afilias went down
on the first or second day of live registrations.
I figured that when Afilias had
its Mac on the floor in bits, registrations had become a lottery again and I placed
orders with a number of Australian registrars which included RegistrarsAsia, WebCity
and NameScout for a couple of names I particularly wanted.
RegistrarsAsia and Webcity
did the business and both were very professional and courteous when I did follow
up business with them.
I have contacted NameScout several times and am still waiting
for "the check in the mail" for the name they didn't register for me when Afilias
was down but for which I had paid.
"Stupid or corrupt" to go into business with
Afilias - you know my assessment of Afilias, I wouldn't recommend anyone do business
with an outfit which produced the fiasco of the .info launch, but I don't know the
nature of the deal the pair of them have done, or the nature of the inducement that
Afilias made have offerred.
I must hope that RegistrarsAsia wants to be in business
for the long haul and build a profitable business on a good reputation. I wouldn't
have thought anyone would have sought out Afilias Ltd. as a partner at this point
in time. But that is just my opinion.
