According to a press release we just received by KSregistry GmbH, which is owned by Key-Systems GmbH, “a third party has executed a transfer of the domain name adamsnames.net and now operates a shadow registry under this domain”.
Adams Names is the Registry for the ccTLD’s of .TC, .GD and .VG and uses KSregistry as its back end to operate the registries.
“According to the CEO of AdamsNames Ltd., Mr. Carsten Pauli, this transfer was not authorized by the registry operator”.
“KSregistry GmbH still provides the technical back-end services for the ccTLDs .TC, .GD and .VG authorized by AdamsNames Ltd., but this is currently hampered by the actions of the third party”.
“In order to not endanger the integrity of the zone after addressing the issues, the Key-Systems GmbH as registrar has decided to not permit current modifications to domain names under .TC, .GD and .VG.”
“The resolution and renewal of the domains are not affected.”
TheDomains.com received reports earlier today that some registrants were having a problem with modifying their domain names under these ccTLD’s and this explains what the issue is.
