Filing Complaints With Domain Registrants

As of today, these are the page views for my posts about GIFT50.COM and GETMY100.COM

2,613 Pageviews

521 Pageviews
That's a lot of pageviews for posts that aren't very old. I have more views for my post about GIFT50 than for all my other blogposts combined. While I have GoogleAds and I have made a little bit of money from the ads on those posts, I've decided that this can't go on forever. There has been no noticeable decrease in pageviews for these posts, despite my inclusion of contact information on where people can file complaints.

So, let's get started in filing complaints against them with the companies they bought their websites from in the first place.

GIFT50.COM is owned by the same person who owns MONEY500.COM, MONEY600.COM, LAPTOP55.COM and over 100 other domains.

If you want to file complaints against this guy, send your email to support@namecheap.com. Tell them that you received the message via text message on your cellphone and include the complete text message that you received. If you received more than one text message, tell them that too and also mention if you have to pay for any texts you receive on your cellphone plan.

Given that over 2000 people read my original blogpost on this guy, I think Namecheap might have cancelled his website if they had received that many complaints in the two months since I posted it.

GETMY100.COM is registered by Domains By Proxy, Inc and this service is for people who don't want others to know who owns the website. However, Domains By Proxy does have its own website where you can file complaints.

Simply go to https://www.domainsbyproxy.com/Default.aspx and click "File A Claim". Mention that you received the message via cellphone text, so there are no email headers to forward to them.
