    Registrars Caught in a Pickle.Com
    posted by michael on Friday January 04 2002, @06:10AM

    Skipper writes "I too found myself in a pickle.com when my OnePine (a Manhattan ISP) folded their doors unanounced. The ISP had registered my 1st domain (SALTY.NET) listing himself as the technical contact with Network Solutions.

    It just so happened that I moved my office 2 days prior to OnePine folding, and was existing on a temporary Verizon Dial-Up until my DSL was installed. All attempts to get NetSol to make account changes were foiled by the fact that my original e-mail address was not working, and that communications sent to the Technical Contact also remained unanswered."



    After about 3 weeks of No E-Mail and No WebSite, and after getting every online request to NetSol to modify the contact records, I finally resorted to trying VeriSign's $29.95 Overnite Expedite Service.

    What I found was a great CSR named Steve Boyd who understood the pickle I was in. He requested a letter by fax with the requested changes bearing my signature and photocopy of my driver's license, plus a valid credit card to charge the fee to.

    The modifications were made immediately, and the DNS server propogation began just a few hours later. By the next morning all my troubles with OnePine.Com were gone. I had "rescued" Salty.Net back from the depths of Hell.Com, and was then able to setup Managed Messaging Services for domain e-mail services from Verizon (which is actually provided by InterLand.Com).

    Finally I renamed my company to T1 Telecom Inc. to better market our computer telephony and broadband services with, and again found that VeriSign was there waiting to assist me.

    In short, security is a great thing... as long as you are not the thief trying to break in or steal something.
