ENOM - Dishonest business practice
For past 3 years, I have a domain with eNom and have been paying renewal fee of 49.95 every year, which is a total rip-off. (it's a .com in case you're curious)
So I decided to initiate a transfer on 25 Oct 2016.
Lo and behold, hours later on that every same day, I was shocked to receive an email in my inbox, telling me they had renewed my domain and charged another 49.95 to my credit card!
I sent an email and a trouble ticket to their helpdesk, clarifying that I did NOT initiate a renewal and what I did was a transfer. And till date (30 Oct 2016), I have not received a reply from eNom, apart from the auto-generated acknowledgement email.
The uncanny timing of the renewal activation from their end and convenient lack of response is all part of what I perceived as highly questionable business practice. I see some complaints here about how difficult it is to transfer domain out from them. Now that I'm in a similar situation, I feel that I need to share my experience.
