Large group of reportedly stolen numeric domains includes 002.com

Domain names are getting stolen more often than what you think.

Domain names are getting stolen more often than what you think.

A domain theft alert was posted today on DNForum, regarding the status of several, undoubtedly premium numeric domain names.

Seven NNN .com domains and two NNNN .com domains were marked as “stolen” – the person announcing the theft is based in China and allegedly a friend of the domain owner whose domain names have been reported as stolen.

The list includes the following domain names:

  • 002.com
  • 056.com
  • 332.com
  • 378.com
  • 498.com
  • 508.com
  • 696.com
  • 7331.com
  • 8225.com

While we cannot confirm the validity of this claim, most of these domains are hiding behind WHOIS protection; most appear to be at GoDaddy and some have been transferred from eNom.

The domain name 002.com is already listed for sale at the Chinese domain bazaar, 4.cn, and we would not be surprised if the rest ended up there.

  1. Our domain name – lightly.com – was stolen June 10 from our GoDaddy account and is now up for sale by a Chinese broker. We had the domain since 1999. Is there anything anyone can recommend to recover the domain? We have filed reports with the Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Center, GoDaddy and FBI. ADNDRC and the FBI have not responded. GoDaddy has basically said, too bad, so sad, there isn’t anything we can do about it.
