"But officer, I don't even HAVE an Pornograph!" Or, "Why we need some kind of indentification technology when it comes to registering domains."

I know that this is an older link, but the situation still exists, and I find it scary. How would you feel if you were this guy, a normal guy with a daughter of your own, and discovered that you had been listed as the administrator for a kiddie porn site?

As an added bonus, feel free to take pot shots at Network Solutions in your answer :)

"Please prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the person who actually placed that registration was me.

Next, please."

Finding a sufficiently savvy judge and lawyer would be the hard part.

pot shots eh?
I've sent 20 messages to them to change my dns registration thingies (you know, with that autoreply thing), using all these different combinations. It's odd how it doesn't understand "Mail-From" and "Yes"

In my experience, Domainmonger.com is far superior (and MUCH cheaper at $17 per year).

If you want cheap(er), try gandi at $11 per year. They're based in France though (for those of you interested in selling former Nazi-items).

So far, I'm mixed about Domain Discover. Their website's spiffy; their people are cool... but I have a weird delegation problem, and I'm getting useless answer.

I *AM*, however, at least *getting* answers... and that's a switch. :-)

I haven't had any problems changing, updating or modifying my .cx domain, whereas I gave up on my .com months ago, because the NSI interface was too unwieldy, and all-around too much hassle.

My only problem is that NICCX isn't offering up anymore domains.

If you have a workstation on which to run the Perl domain-management scripts, then join OpenSRS, register domains for $10/year, and modify them yourself! And, they're running a discount on domain transfers, which are normally $10 but only $6.75 for the nonce.
