Donuts Pulled Back & Reserved Luxury.Villas During EAP After Orders Were Placed

Posted on the 28 May 2014 by Worldwide @thedomains

Yesterday we wrote about how didn’t award us the domain name Luxury.Villas which we ordered last week for registration on the 5th day of the   Early Access Program (EAP) wrote about this domain as being priced at $13,500 for year of registration and renewal just three days ago while the EAP program was already going.

Now it seems the domain was reserved by the registry during the EAP period while there were pending orders

Here is the Whois on the domain name:

“This name is reserved by the Registry in accordance with ICANN Policy.”

Here is the email I just got from Godaddy  just minutes ago:

Needless to say I’m not a happy camper.

For one I never filed a “ticket with Godaddy” , they apparently saw my blog post and opened their own ticket on it.

Instead of honoring the order at Godaddy, Donuts decided to pull the domain back after the EAP started, after the domain had an order that was paid for.

No Bueno guys

Not the way to run a business, especially a new one that already has a pretty of doubters.
