melonman writes "You register your domain with a a major registrar that is owned by a huge backbone provider. Then, when your domain comes up for renewal, they debit your account, produce an invoice for renewing the domain, but don't renew the domain. Your mail starts bouncing, your website vanishes. You google the problem and find that you are not alone. You contact support, and never receive a response. It looks like your domains are about to be lost, and that it will then cost $300 to reclaim them... That's the current state of several domains that our company manages for third parties. What are the options for regaining control over your domains when your registrar screws up and refuses to talk to you?"
