I’m talking about all those practices walking the line between legal and illegal used by (usually) shady providers.
I’ve tried to avoid that kind of hosts who use those kind of methods of plague, but sometimes you realize even the (supposedly) reliable ones try to cut corners by doing that....as I learned on my skin with my main italian registrar.
I have around 15-20 domains registered with this registrar and, since I started using their service, I’ve been drowning in phone calls from financial trading and/or consulting firms; I link this to that registrar because the stream of calls happens and starts a few days after registering a tld with that provider. It has happened with every single domain I’ve registered with that host....hard (I say impossible) not to think the two things are connected.
Since I’m pessimistic, sometimes I’ve arrived to think my italian registrar is the one passing data to this phone spammers. I know it is not like that, still, since the data get somehow leaked online, it’s pretty darn clear the host’s security is downright sh*tty at the very least.
Sorry for the rant, but I just got off the phone with one of the aforementioned spammers - many of them have the gall to say I emailed them asking for info, which I never did (as if!) - and I needed to let it out.
See you next time; many cheers. XOXO
