My domain was hijacked today
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:
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 I get to your site, but not when I go to . So it looks like some DNS cache problem. Will probably fix itself if you just wait.

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?
