Wireless products company in China loses domain in suspicious circumstances; files UDRP to get it back.
Wireless company Shenzhen AEE Technology Co., Ltd has filed a UDRP for the domain name AEE.com.
But before you question this filing for a three letter domain name, there are some interesting circumstances surrounding this domain name. You can discover them with the help of DomainTools’ historical whois.
Shenzhen AEE Technology Co., Ltd owned the domain name until early July of this year. The domain name was registered at
Name.com NameCheap.com and didn’t expire until 2015. Then on July 11 the domain was suddenly transferred to eNom and placed under whois proxy.
On October 21 the domain shifted to Dynadot. It was protected with a whois privacy service and showed Dennis Vink as the owner. The next day the named registrant using the privacy service changed to Alvaro Bernal.
[Update: I originally wrote that the domain was at Name.com. It was actually NameCheap, an eNom reseller. It then transferred to another eNom account (non-NameCheap) before being transferred to Dynadot.]
The web site now has new blog with the title: “AEE Alvaro’s Enchanting Experiences”.
Yep, this whole thing smells a bit fishy.
