100% stay away form Name.com! Never transfer domain to Name…Is it a scam?!

Update on

100% stay away Name.com! Do not use or transfer your domains to Name.com, I did it, then the nightmare came, still not wakeup! Please carefully checked what's happened! The terrible support is still no response!

I am making a living via blogging for more than 10 years! I used so many Domain Name Registrars, like GoDaddy, Namecheap, network solutions, Google Domains and so on…I have more than 300+ domains at now…There was no problem with other Registrars…

But this time I plan to transfer my 20+ domains to name.com! I really never want to note this Bu**sh*t Registrar! After I approved the transfer from GoDaddy, They closed my account without any notify!

I'll show you their behavior here! Mainly show the evidence and I guarantee the authenticity of the information!

The beginning of the nightmare when choosing it…

Yes on Sep 14, I already unblock my domains on GoDaddy and submit my domain's authentication code to them.

I paid for transferring order using my credit card, Successful payment to Name.com and got their system “success” feedback, Here is the detail!

Name.com Abuse

They are the “big company”, I do not know they have the ability to protect my personal privacy or not…for years, Only PayPal, Payoneer asked me that information…Okay, I follow to do it, I would like to check what's going on!


Wednesday? It's an auto-response to ask me to wait 24 hours! If I not stop it, all domain will be transferred to your system! How long are your 24 hours? Let me know!
Okay! I attached my photos of my passport & credit card!
I used lots of registrars…you're the first one to ask it! I do not know why!! 
Okay, I sent it to you. Please take care my your client's personal privacy information!
You can do it when I register or when I handle the payment, But 100% before the transfer…
Also…wait me so long time to reply to me…and closed even not send an email to notify your client!
Do you know how much hours wasted…

Wow…Yes, they sent me a reply on Sep 18th, I carefully check all my email again! You can check I never check and read it for in the trash/spam folder…

I have to note it! I just found! For it's in my trash folder for this email provider it's mean spam folder like Gmail…

This one I misunderstood their Name.com Compliance team (compliancehelp), It the same email to ask the verification!
So I am sorry to those my words that I sent to their support about this.

Wednesday? It's an auto-response to ask me to wait 24 hours! How long are your 24 hours? Let me know!
Sorry about this, but the other facts are still the same…

I just sent an email saying sorry about it! I am a reasonable guy, If happened we should not hide it!

A missed email

But this matter does not affect the whole facts, I think they will activate my account…but whole things is crazy!

They closed the account when I am transferring my domains…and especially closed my account without any notify! Until I contact their support they tell me “account has been flagged by our system and closed for fraud”…If you feel it's fraud,  Should you contact me to verify it, isn't it!

If they notify me, I 100% already refused all domain transfer! No need to waste my time to those all thing…Now If I want to handle the domain, I have to take another more time to verify my ID!!!

Sep 22th – The account is still closed…

Okay…nightmare is still, keep observing it!


Now I am on vacation in Taiwan, I write this post firstly at 11 AM on Sep 19th at UTC/GMT+08:00, all images should be based on this time zone, and my vacation almost destroyed by Name.com…Waste my too much time on it…

  • 100% stay away Name.com!
  • 100% stay away Name.com!
  • 100% stay away Name.com!

Three times for important things!


And I found not just me in the same situation…There are lots of bad reviews…I do regret not seeing it earlier!

It's 100%, not just an easy mistake…I found one guy report the same issues to name.com…the guys got domain locked…For me, my account got closed directly after I transferred the domain to them!

Is Name.com a Scam?

You can evaluate from my experience…”My domain” now is holding on Name.com, but I can not log in my account…Funny or Crazy? Not to mention their customer service…
