Who Sold Me to Domain Design Shop?

I was curious when I received an Email with the subject “Important information about your domain: thinlight.org”. I ordered this domain name from GoDaddy, but they shouldn’t send me emails when there isn’t any changes of the domain.

Actually the mail was not from GoDaddy. The content was:

Hello,

Sweet! They knew that I had just got this domain and provided such a comfortable service!

But wait a minute. Who gave away the message that I just registered this domain? I think it’s not GoDaddy who sold me out. “Domain Design Shop” must be such a shit polling the whois database to get the new registered domains information, and spamming these domain owners.

If you’re interested, go and check out their own website. No I don’t want such design works, though my own design is ugly enough. They just remind me of the “good old days” years ago.

Usually we would pay an extra fee to hide our contact information in the whois query result. Just hope they’re not spamming every domain buyers.

  1. I registered a domain with Go daddy few days back. But I didnt get any msg like this.
    I guess its not GoDaddy, they dont need to do this and they have their own service for this, why would promote some other service.

    Although I like your blog design…its really Thin and light! :)

  2. i have several domains – some reg’d with godaddy, some not, but i was spammed by these tossers about one of my godaddy holdings…

    other pages/blogs on the net seem to report the same thing!
