Updtae: DomianKing is fully back
From Technical issues to fraud. Domainking.ng a domain name provider which most Nigerians including myself trusted for quality hosting and domain registry has turned out to be a fraud and team of scammers. Due to this you should transfer your domain name from Domainking to Garanntor.
At first domainking issues started from the affiliate program, then to DNS panel registration then it moved to contacting them. Till they
finally shut down the site. I don’t know if true, but a post on OgbongeBlog reveals that the owners of DomainKing have been arrested for fraudulent acts.
Transfer Your Domain Name.
Due to the site shut down, it is recommended for you to transfer your domain so you can get access to your Control Panel, activate emails and also renew your plan. And to do this, many Domain name providers will request for an EPP code.
An EPP code (domain transfer security code) at this point can no longer be acquired by a domainking customer because the site is completely down. This is why you should consider moving to Garanntor because they can transfer your domain name without an EPP code.
