RegisterFly loses credibility, terminated by ICANN
Post by websitegear on Apr 2, 2007 11:35:07 AM CST

The high flying domain name registrar company has been recently terminated by ICANN from their list of accredited registrars. The decision comes after problems arose within the company related to misappropriation of funds and clash between the two primary owners of the company - CEO Kevin Medina and vice president John Naruszewicz.

Mr. Naruszewicz claimed in a lawsuit filed in February, 2007, that Medina has used company funds to pay for personal expenses such as a $10,000 per month Miami beach penthouse, $6,000 bill for liposuction, $6000 for a Chihuahua, $9,000 on escorts. In response, Medina locked down the website by changing the root passwords of the servers. Since each of Medina and Naruszewicz own 50% of the company, the feud led to disaster at the company. has been known to be a cheap registrar for domain names and have registered more than 2 million names since its inception. ICANN's notice of termination mentions about releasing these domain names for transfers by owners and may allow bulk transfers to ICANN designated registrar if required. Even if survives these bad times, it has already lost credibility with the customers.
