Warning: Avoid Buying Domains at EuroDNS

(August 14, 2009) Just a heads up to everyone – avoid buying domains at EuroDNS, or be careful when doing so.

Quick summary:

  • – Purchased a domain that was available via them.
  • – Get an e-mail the next day telling me I have to submit scan of passport for ID purposes.  Send that in immediately.
  • – Am told that the domain name is actually already taken, and the money I paid has been put into EuroDNS account.
  • – I tell them I didn’t get what I paid for, so want a refund.
  • – Told can’t refund to credit card, has to be bank wire.
  • – Charged fee of €11.50 for that.

So yeah – I get to pay €11.50 for a bunch of hassle.  What a deal!  Strong recommendation to avoid buying domains from EuroDNS.
