Domain Name Theft (Hijacking) and Recovery

What is Domain Theft?

How Does it Happen?

When someone takes control of your domain, without your permission, your domain has been stolen. This usually happens without the owner even knowing – sometimes by hacks, sometimes by stolen passwords, and sometimes by unscrupulous employees.

Registrars: Less Help Than You Think

Once your domain is stolen, your registrar has little power to get it back. They can request the return and complain to ICANN but many registrars won’t even do that. And it rarely works.

What Happens to Stolen Domains?

The income from the stolen domain goes to the thief, who can also sell your domain to the highest bidder – and they keep the cash!
