Domain Retrieval Help

Msg#: 4465808 posted 9:20 am on Jun 15, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi looking for advice first time poster long time lurker. My company domain was registered through and they retain ownership. The hosting company have suddenly gone into administration taking my website down and access to the domain name with it, is there anything I can do to get the name transferred over to a new company or me to get it up and running again. Obviously the website being down is affecting my business so keen to sort it out asap. All advice welcome !

Is the hosting company listed in the WhoIs record as the registrant and as the administrative contact?

If so you might have to call and/or send a letter to the administrator explaining the crisis/problem.

You will probably have to offer proof that you are the "owner in fact" of the domain and that you don't owe any money for services, etc.

In a worst case scenario you may have to hire a lawyer/solicitor to present the matter to a court on an emergency basis. In the States that procedure is sometimes called an "Order to Show Cause" (why certain relief should not be granted immediately).
