Who stole my domain? Paralegal owns the matching .com

The biggest threat to one’s online presence is clearly their domain name, and its safe-keeping at the domain registrar.

Domain theft is prevalent currently, and while some cases involve domain names and not active business web sites, when the latter occurs it’s hell on earth.

We recall the temporary theft of ShadesDaddy.com, a case that cost thousands of dollars to its business owner, who was lucky enough to reclaim it.


Paralegal Cheryl Tylenda, appears to have had an inspiration about providing information or expert advice on stolen domain names; there is no other reason for her registration of WhoStoleMyDomain.com.

While there is no active web site, other than GoDaddy ads, the domain clearly attempts to offer information to the question, “who stole my domain name?

Hopefully in the future it will be developed into a source of information on how to reclaim stolen domain names, and the process to seek legal support; it’s the perfect match for the task.

    I think it may become a good business to act for the owner of a stolen domain. when a domain is stolen, the legitimate owner is at a loss what to do. This is more so particularly when the owner of a stolen domain is non-native English speaker. They don’t seem to get enough help from the registrars for various reasons.

    Now that Godaddy no longer receives a support request via email from its customers, non-native English speakers are having great difficulty in seeking help from the company. The so-called telephone support is not helpful for non-English speakers and it often leads to mis-communication and no help at all. It seems to me that the reason why Godaddy stopped email communication with the support seekers is that they don’t want to leave any written evidences of stupid replies to support requests. imo, it is now to the point where non-English speakers may need to hire agents solely for contacting Godaddy for problem solving requests and supports. Another way may be simply to quit being a Godaddy customer.

    I purchased “whostolemydomain.com” because a friend of mine swindled me out of an idea I had on my lunch break at work. I couldn’t purchase “whostolemylife.com” quick enough before he bought it for me, promising to transfer it. I was going to use for blogging about my life…the one I never expected to have! I wanted the happy family, but instead was divorced with kids working full-time; li ing a rat race to make it by the skin of my teeth. So-called friend promised to not auto renew several years. I tried to scoop it up each time, but he kept auto renewing. The next time I look, he has it listed in auctions for $1350! He was still the registered domain owner. I called him. He denied it! It sold for asking price. My blog idea crashed and burned on this single-mom’s budget! A great idea, great domain name, all gone. A so-called friend, makes a buck! I decide to purchase “whostolemylife.net,” to preserve my idea and run along the .com site to give them competition and me more hits. I have yet to start my blogging. I also was so mad, I purchased “whostolemydomain.com” because I know who did! I have no immediate plans for the domain/site.
