My domain sbmk.nu was hijacked today nunames.nu.
I have sent a support request to my hosting provider but I wonder if anyone have any experiences with this? Is it easy or hard to get the domain back? Do I need some kind of proof that I own the domain except whatever my hosting have? According to them I own the domain, but the confirmation that I have bought it was by email.

I think this forum is probably not the place for this question, but I checked the domain and
this is the whois info (the owner of the domain).

Organization Name:    Skelleftea Badmintonklubb SBMK
First Name:    Bengt-Olof
Last Name:    Lundberg
Address 1:    Box 389
Address 2:    
City:    SKELLEFTEA
StateProvince:    
PostalCode:    93124
Country:    SE
Phone:    +46.910733790

It is registered untill: 2010-01-07

I don't think it is hijacked by nunames (as thay are the ones that sell them).
When I enter the www.sbmk.nu I get to your site, but not when I go to sbmk.nu . So it looks like some DNS cache problem. Will probably fix itself if you just wait.

Ahh..
Thats nice to hear! And, ofcourse I should have checked that before panicking. :blush:
However, I recall seeing this on other sites as well. This shouldn't happen very often, right?
