Worst registrar of my 10+ years career

Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to make you all aware of Domeny.pl registrar which is the worst registrar I’ve ever dealt with in the last 10+ years. I’ve been using many bad registrars like NetworkSolutions, Register.com, Hexonet and many more but Domeny.pl have beaten all of them.

So what happened is I bought several .CO and .ME domains from the previous domain owner. I had a massive problem communicating with the seller due to language issues which took many months to complete the deal but the registrar was another headache for me to deal with. The seller was reluctant to provide me authorization codes for every domain we completed the deal with because he thought the registrar had previously locked his domain for a 60 days period when he tried to transfer out that way. This I don’t believe it because the domain might be already in the 60 days transfer lock period. So for that reason, all the domains were first pushed into my account before I could transfer out.

Now here the problems got started. First was that the seller had to start an internal transfer request for a .CO domain for which the seller had to make a payment of roughly $25 to Domeny. Once they’ve received the funds, they manually accepted the transfer request which had several steps of approval to get from their internal departments. Once the domain was transferred to my account, another headache was coming up, this time upon me. I had to request for a form to be provided which had to be filled, signed and returned back which was another step to delay the transfer out process.

Once that was manually approved by this shitty registrar, they used to ask me to pay a transfer out fee which was once again roughly $25. Now here I’m using “roughly” word because they charged in their own Polish currency but since I was paying in USD so there were some cents up and down for every authorization code I want to receive.

After the authorization code was made available into my account which they usually were saying will take another few days to get it done but after all my requests in this regard, they were making it available the same day. After initiating the transfer out to my preferred registrar, it was taking 5 days to complete the transfer.

It was really the most frustrating experience using this as a registrar and I’m warning everyone never to use them because they charge money for internal transfers and to provide you authorization codes. I’m not sure about their other services for which they would be charging unlike at other registrars where you can get it for free like WHOIS privacy.

Also each .ME domain transfer out, they asked me $235.81. It was an unbelievable transfer out fee. Even the seller wasn’t aware of this situation and was kind enough to offer me the money which I didn’t take and asked Domeny to lower the fee, the same like .CO transfer fee. Because without paying them money, it was impossible to receive authorization code. For this particular thing, they somehow accepted my request and charged me some $25 for each .ME domain as well. Overall, I ended up paying close toΒ $500Β for all the authorization codes I received for the domains.

They’re looting domain owners and providing disgusting service at the same time. I highly recommend NOT to use Domeny ever.

Feel free to share experiences if someone has used them in any way.

Thank you!

This is criminal and you should report them to ICANN and report to all domain blogs as well so they don’t keep deceiving innocent people. Beware of Domeny.pl everyone!!! Hope this gets indexed in Google so others can avoid them .

Can’t believe they get away charging that high to transfer out.

Why don’t you ask the seller put at Dan or Sav and you buy from there?
And, isn’t there a some sort of a written Transfer process that shows what involve?

I don’t buy anything from China, Russia or some lawless countries.

Hello Abdul, hope you are fine This is a nice post to show awareness to the domain industry. This is a huge amount to pay for authorization codes. This company must be thinking that “we can charge this amount as we KNOW that people will pay us” so they are taking financial advantage of the situation. Many people will pay this authorization code fee, so Domeny will make more money, and most of them buyers will not challenge or complain about paying this It is great of you to point this out and make a post to let other domainers… Read more »

Its really bad experience , there is no such as registrar (except Domeny ) that ask additional cost to transfer out. Its better to report them to ICANN or their parent company
