Yahoo! Domains

Grrr. Nev­er, ever, no mat­ter what, reg­is­ter a domain through Yahoo.

The domain name for our home­school­ing group was reg­is­tered with Yahoo by the group’s pres­i­dent. There’s sup­posed to be a “con­trol pan­el” to per­mit man­age­ment of the domain—changing con­tact info, DNS, etc. That’s where all the help files and Yahoo’s sup­port peo­ple send you when you ask ques­tions about such issues.

That page is noth­ing but adver­tise­ments. There is no con­trol pan­el. Peri­od. There isn’t. It does­n’t mat­ter who is look­ing at it, and what Yahoo ID they’ve logged in as (the own­er of the domain, me, etc.)—there is no con­trol panel.

The phone num­ber giv­en in the domain reg­is­tra­tion as a con­tact point for Yahoo is noth­ing but a record­ing refer­ring the caller to the web­site that has no con­trol pan­el, or an email address that gets no respons­es but the autore­ply (again, send­ing one to the use­less web site).
