WARNING! New Services Ventures Corp and Other Bad Players...


If you own domains at Web.com, Network Solutions, Register.com, and Yahoo! Small Business, be sure to keep a wary eye on your digital property.
The above registrars have been known to transfer domains, without your permission or even knowledge, to a domain warehouse called New Ventures Services Corp. Some of these domains have expired, but some have not –

Some have just been plain hijacked, mostly from small business users and personal website owners, often ordinary people who have scant knowledge of the domain business.

Better yet, transfer your domain(s) to a domain registrar that places the domain rights of customers ahead of their own special interests.
Just do so well before the expiration date because the above registrars have been known to use delaying tactics and bogus transfer rejections, hoping that customers will give up.
Go Daddy, a registrar that does business the right way (for the most part – there are no totally clean hands in the domain name industry), allows domain owners to renew their expired domains up to 45 days after expiration; in fact, Go Daddy allows customers to renew at regular registration fees, up to day 12 after expiration. After that time they do charge a premium of $80, which is not unreasonable,

OR, better yet,

The option of transferring your expired domain out to another registrar (the new registrar will charge an owner a small transfer fee and add a year to the registration date – just don’t transfer to the above registrars).

In other words, Go Daddy offers its customers every opportunity to reclaim their domains, even to the point of losing money, customers, and/or domain names in the process.
However, the above greedy registrars will simply dump your domain into a New Ventures Services account for the purpose of exploiting website owners, and when the customer calls customer service, the rep will throw up his/her hands, pretending that New Services Ventures is a separate entity, when, in fact, it appears to be a shell company of Web.com, who happens to own Network Solutions and Register.com.

Extensive details about these registrars and other bad players will soon be posted on my main website, and a link to it will be posted here. Keep checking back.

These connected businesses, in addition to other sketchy companies, forgot who they were designed to serve.
Meanwhile, keep in mind that your business practices reflect who you are.


  1. I have been treated unfairly by Network Solutions ....my Domain name has been taken away from me by New Venture service Corp, without Network Solutions informing me no emails, no corresponding via post to inform me my expiry date, I had my Domain name since 1996. When I phoned Network Solutions, they suggested I should ring the new owners and ask them to give me my domain name back, as I did search the new owner is selling my domain name for over $1000 US dls .I felt let down, and been mistreated, Network Solutions no domain names are safe with you. You lied to me.

    1. Network Solution transfers my domain name to New Venture service corp
      before expiry date (more than 1 year). They charged me register fee and offer to sell it back to me $2000.00 plus.

  2. The exact same thing happened to me. This is just terrible business, and there should be laws enacted to stop this practice. It destroys businesses!

  3. Eden, It took me about a year to re-acquire my domain. Unless your domain is a "money" one, they eventually delete it from their inventory.

  4. Hey guys, let me explain a bit about what is happening. New Ventures is a Web.com company. Web.com owns Network Solutions, Register.com, Yodle.com, 1shoppingcart.com, renovationexperts.com,solidcactus.com, donweb.com, scoot.com. They then purchased Snapnames which was an auction site for expired domains. They have a 50 percent partnership with Rightside in NameJet.Then in 2016 they purchased Rightside's domain name drop list registrar accreditation's for $1.3 million. That is the kicker right there. So now they steal domains from those who don't renew it before the 30-day grace period. The way a domain is supposed to work according to ICANN, the domain must go through multiple stages. The register cannot steal it from you. If they want it then they'd have to wait just like everyone else. Here are the REAL steps.
    1. Expires
    2. After 30-45 days it enters the redemption period. This is when you can still renew your domain at an added cost. The register adds the cost not ICANN the governing authority over domain registrations.
    3. Pending Deletion - During this stage you cannot renew the domain, nor can the registry. It must play out until it is fully deleted from the registry. This can take a few days to months. I have seen two domains sit in the pending delete stage for almost 4 months. Were they stuck? Who knows. But that causes problems for someone wanting to get that domain back.
    4. Once it is deleted anyone can buy it.
    Those are the general steps to a REAL domain expiration process.

    Now, regarding Register.com, Network Solutions etc. The company they are sending it to belongs to them. New Ventures aka newvcorp.com is a Web.com company. They are literally stealing domains for profit. Called domain warehousing or speculation and it is illegal and prohibited by ICANN in their accreditation documents. Why? Because they are not waiting until it is deleted from the registry. Something they have NO CONTROL OVER. They have no right to take it. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen. I see class action lawsuit written all over this. HERE IS THE RULING BY ICAAN OVER THIS SITUATION A WHILE BACK. NOW THEY ARE DOING IT AGAIN! https://www.icann.org/news/advisory-2002-01-28-en And Google Principles for allocation of registered names, prohibitions on warehousing of or speculation in domain
    Report it to the https://www.consumerfinance.gov/ Click the submit complaint button at the top right. This is the governing board for the DODD-FRANK bill activated in 2012. They handle all consumer purchases and company abuses.
    If I were any of you, I would sue them for the domain fees and the time lost. What they are doing is against the rules. I don't know of any other register other than GODaddy that does this. GODaddy is the WORST. I know, I work in this industry and trust me stay far away from them. They have been in trouble for this exact thing too. I am sure you've heard about the Godaddy auctions. Well there ya have it. Not to mention their owner is an elephant murderer. Along with many other endangered animals just for fun.
    So you're probably thinking well what is a good place to register a domain cheap? I personally use 1and1.com using multiple accounts to continue receiving the discounts. I change the nameservers to point to my host and voila. All domains in one place without any worries. Plus, they offer free WHOIS privacy and don't steal domains. These people will call you if you are about to lose a domain. They are great and no I don't work for them. Never have. I also use namecheap.com I have two domains with them. They were offering a great deal and I couldn't pass it up. I own over 100 domains so I keep a spreadsheet of all the accounts and their expiration dates. That makes it easy. Good luck and don't let them get away with it! Name all executives in the lawsuit btw, not just et all.

  5. they took my domain name without notice and want to sell it back to me, total scam
