    Hostway is an ICANN accredited registrar

    Hostway owns DomainPeople, an ICANN accredited registrar. It acquired DomainPeople through its acquisition this summer of Vancouver, B.C.-based NetNation Communications. It operates DomainPeople as either a wholly owned subsidiary or separate brand. So, it's odd they're not using DomainPeople to their advantage. I wonder why they're also a reseller.

    Oh well, another instance like this is how RegisterFly is an eNom reseller but its parent company Unified Names, Inc. operates Dodora Communications, which is an ICANN accredited registrar. :)

    Hmmm, this bears more looking into. NetNation/DomainPeople are at 555 West Hastings Street in Vancouver, BC, also the home of the notorious [chsw.com] domain name spammer Jack Tang [geocrawler.com] (he actually lives in nearby Richmond, BC, I wonder if Outblaze would pay a finders fee). ICANNWatchers may know him for the .biz and .info pre-registration scams/spams. Admittedly it's a large building so it may be a coincidence, but then again the same suite occupied by NetNation according to their WHOIS is also occupied by Gearbulk [shipnet.com], a shipping company.

    Jack Tang is also a CIRA (.ca) accredited registrar via canreg.com, I tried to get CIRA to disaccredit him given his long and distinguished history, but they weren't interested. Given ICANN's inability to disaccredit the likes of registrar bondillc, it would be hilarious, and true to form, if Jack Tang winds up as an ICANN registry. -g
