Domain and hosting offers - beware


#1

HI , before 2 month i had to buy domain for one of my client urgently and there isn’t credit in my payoneer card to buy domain asp so i get help from one of Indian seller call " alsoftwares “. (no longer in fiverr and i think fiverr caught him and removed from fiverr)



i wanted it asp but i had to wait 2 days and lastly he provide me domain and control panel logging. i thought he provide godaddy but it is website call union host com and that i think only Indian can order domain from it …



i did not try to get refund or leaved bad feedback because i am also seller here () () and i did not much care because however he done what i asked …



so after 2 months my client contact me and send this message …



”"HELLO,

MY UNION HOST COM ACCOUNT EXPIRED DUE TO NONE PAYMENT. I TRIED PAYING BUT IT WON’T GO THROUGH, CONTACTED SUPPORT AND THEY SAID THE REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT IS FOR INDIA CLIENTS ONLY.

WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW? “”"



after i checked union host com i found there is cheap hosting offer with free domain and lot of sellers using this and sell domain here but problem is this is only for month not for 1 year and now for me or my client can’t renew it because this site only for Indians.



This is domain i bought and showing account is suspended fragglesrock com



i wrote this story because i need to inform everyone here about this and that i think this will help to everyone beware from cheat sellers like this.



sorry for my bad English but i think everyone can read and understand this … 8->



Thanks

I won’t risk buying any domains or website hosting on Fiverr. They’re way too risky.

I would not buy any service on Fiverr that needed to be sustained longer than 30 days. If a user account is banned or the seller just quits, you can’t get help since Fiverr is not responsible for independent contractors. I left the username you posted in since it no longer exists on Fiverr. Normally you can’t post usernames and another moderator might remove it, but I see no harm since it’s not in use. Just remember that in general, you can offer warnings about service types but not names.

Reply to @nettspring: why is anyone buying domains from Fiverr sellers? That is risky to begin with.

So you are saying that you do buy domains for your buyers, but just this one time you didn’t have enough money to do it?
