Who Remembers RegisterFly

Those of you who've been in the domain game business for sometime will probably remember registerfly.net they were big, had some of the best domain prices on the net and kindly went bust leaving many of us domain holders in complete frustration for about 3-4 months whilst ICANN took over and handed authority over to GoDaddy!

Who got stung with them and did you manage to get all your domains back ? Definitely a defining time in the domain registrar business.

Ah man, bad memories all over again. I had two accounts with them, and one I had registered with fake details and I forgot the password to the account (Silly me , I know) I manged to recover the other one but the one with fake details i couldn't as godaddy would only transfer those that had legitimate contact details.

Lost atleast $200 worth of quality domains there, recovered a couple of them but lost a few :( The guy who ran registerfly was gay or something and had a fallout with his partner. He walked off with the money , was something really silly but ICANN got a real grilling after that and at least now domain registrars are stripped if they start acting like cowboys!

Man that brings back memories, I lost a couple of domains but got them back eventually :) Was a tough time for webmasters who had loads of domains with them. Hope that never happens again, oh the bad memories.  :))
