Horrible spam after registration.

Not cool...

I’ve owned MANY domains over the years, and several with GD. Never, ever, ever have I been spammed like this.

No way is it just a public registration. Yes... registrars info is public through any Whois, but I have to call BS when I start getting massive amounts of emails and calls OVER NIGHT.

I’ll be in touch with the FCC and others right away.

Very unhappy

Sorry to hear that you are getting SPAMMED like that @Rikk1960, Initially when I read the heading of your post I was thinking the whole public registration angle. Reading further I see that you have have dismissed that notion and I understand your frustration because I have been there.


It has been my experience that SPAM has changed for the worse. I don't really have a great answer for how to reduce SPAM but I will say that I have gotten the most SPAM from domains that have been previously registered. I don't know about your domain specifically but I do know that when you buy a domain you additionally get the baggage from that domain. I have myself purchased domains with some unscrupulous history and it does take time to rectify those issues. I actually don't even advise that one should try to reform a domain.


I hope your issue isn't one of history. That's all I can think of because I haven't known a fresh domain to have a more than normal amount of SPAM. Unfortunately laws on this are behind technology and I find that going back and forth sometimes means more SPAM. I wish I had something more I could suggest. 


...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
