February 1st is National Punch a Domain Thief Day

During the entire 2014, domain theft increased to numbers unseen before, thanks to an ICANN imposed requirement for ownership verification.

The Registrars rushed to comply, falling victims to a flood of email phishing originating mostly from China.

Rogue domain registrars make life difficult to domain owners whose domains were stolen; although, there has been a change of pace recently, with the return of several numeric domains via the filing of a lawsuit.

The real perpetrators, however, cyberthieves and vagabonds hiding behind a network that cannot be easily accessed by the US authorities or the FBI, get away scot-free.

Therefore, we declare February 1st, 2015 as the first National Punch a Domain Thief Day, in order to warn those criminals that they will be found and brought to justice.
