highly-coveted domain – web.net – was hijacked the other day by an unknown person who sent an unauthorized change of information email to Network Solutions, which they promply executed without following proper procedures. So an innovative, old-guard non-profit internet host who works extensively with other non-profits, charities, and is a member of the Association for Progressive Communications, was left high and dry for a few DAYS – as were their clients.
I bet Network Solutions makes excuses rather than apologizing. I wonder when they’re going to realize that this isn’t just a game, this is people’s livelihoods, their vision of the future, their business. A bank doesn’t start sending my statements to someone else without a lot of information and confirmation. I wonder why Netsol thinks they should offer any less security?
