There is an article by Rick Schwartz where he lambasts register.com for stuffing his account with unwanted domain names.

So the big question is why would Rick use one of the worst registrars anyway?
I was curious so I went to register the .ca IsThisaJoke.ca




Here are the results:

[h]Notice in this screen shot the shopping cart is empty[/h]

[h] Enter the domain name[/h]




Picture0003.png
[h]It is instantly in the card, it does not say available or anything it is automatically added to the cart and I would have to remove it.[/h]




Picture0004.png
[h]Now I must continue as a guest or login to even see the cart[/h]

[h]Upsell #1 - Add Microsoft 365[/h]

[h]Upsell Number #2 + #3 + #4[/h]

[h]Upsell Number #5[/h]

[h]Total price $21.00 USD[/h]




OMG, this company is owned by web.com and Rick goes through this crap when he registers and now they include a free matching .site domain for every domain he owns. If he does not cancel the .site domains they will automatically renew after one year!!

So rgister.com is artificially boosting the .site registrations by millions per year and then catching unsuspecting folks when they forget to cancel the .site domain after a year. The renewal rate will probably include the free first year!!

What a racket!!

Maybe Rick only has this one domain there because he bought it there and there's a 60-day lock on it before he can transfer it out? I doubt he's got all of his domains there... The other domains of his I checked were at Directnic.
