I requested a .bit domain and paid but get no reply

Post by Lilyreso » Fri Nov 29, 2013 8:26 am

Hello.

It seems that "register.dot-bit.org" is not scammer, but I didn't get any instruction after I paid 0.1btc for a domain I registered.

They said the registration process is manual.

But there is not even a notification after I sending the payment, and no answer to my questioning email.

Can anybody know how to deal with this problem?

Does anyone take charge of domain registration?

Due to the distributed nature of Namecoin it is difficult to say who is in charge :mrgreen:

Your problem is with this particular registrar. Try and contact Khal.
nx.bit - some namecoin stats
nf.bit - shortcut to this forum

I would recommend just using Namecoin-Qt to register a name; it's only 0.02 NMC per domain and you don't have to trust a 3rd party to register it for you.

Currently I've yet known anything about how to use Namecoin-Qt.
Also I don't know how the dot-bit register it for me? Will a 0.02NMC be given to me?
I trust the 3rd party because it's dot-bit.org.
Anyway, thank you! I will buy some NMC and figure out how to assemble the Namecoin-Qt.

Last question: if I register a domain, will others be able to register a exactly same one with another Namecoin?

Cheers,
Lily

The network disallows collisions, i.e. if you register a name, no one else can register the same name unless you allow yours to expire (36000 blocks without a renew operation).
