Advice please. Hopefully this is the correct thread for this question.
Our website address is: companyname. com
Someone has registered our company name with a dash: ourcompany-name. com
It is registered and hosted with Network Solutions. The user used our real postal address to register the domain to make it look genuine.
We discovered the owner is sending out emails using the domain pretending to be our company.
Network Solutions say there is nothing they can do about it unless we have a court order. I don't see why we should have to pay to sort this.
Does anyone know if there are rules about using false whois information to register a domain. Surely Network Solutions have a responsibilty?. I contacted Icann and they simply refered me back to Network Solutions :/
