The mystery surrounding the brazen theft of extremely valuable domains from Moniker, continues.

After receiving permission from Elequa, we can unveil two more priceless domains stolen from his domain portfolio at Moniker.

Both YN.com and BIT.com were stolen by the same domain thieves, that attempted to cover their trail by using WHOIS protection in the process.

These two domains also point to an interesting discovery: the infiltration of Moniker’s accounts apparently started much earlier than we thought.

Both domains were stolen in early September, with BIT.com being the first one to go.

According to historic WHOIS data from DomainTools, the domain was stolen on September 8th and the theft of YN.com followed, on September 15th.

A mass access of domain accounts at Moniker followed, between September 18th and October 3rd.

The domains YN.com and BIT.com were first pushed to a Moniker account and were then transferred to Name.com, where they remain frozen by the registrar per Elequa’s request.

We’ll update this post with additional information once there are any related news.

Here’s how you can tell if you lost any domains from your Moniker account.

    This helped push the move to Uniregistry for Elequa and that might be a good idea for all of us. Frank as a domineer is going to have our backs. I already pay more there just because it’s so easy when I come up with a thought to hand register something, I can complete the transaction before I lose it. How much is that worth? My only wonder is if they had Elequa’s credentials to break in how come they only took 2? To tell you I told you so -the Frager Factor urged to drop moniker years ago!

    Good to hear that NAME.COM acts fast and that this registrar is not a pussy like GoDaddy.

    Fortunately, I did not lost any domains. But. the email sent by moniker is shocking.

    First, I thought it is a spam mail. Time to move to uniregistry.

  4. I promise it was not me who stole YN.com. But I do see its value.
