This is the true life story of an online investor/webmaster in India who has spent $200,000 of her own hard earned money with different registrars, web hosting and ecommerce companies.
She is put under surveillance for years and her personal financial information is leaked to extortionists and blackmailers.
She is expected to form a company with relatives and wives of powerful people.
The wives and relatives have spent their money on gold, jewellery, vehicles and posh houses, almost nothing online.
Yet, the partnership is expected to be 50-50.
Will their wives/relatives give the webmaster 50% of their gold, jewellery, vehicles and posh houses ?
But if the webmaster does not give a 50% stake in her business, they’ll make her life miserable, harass her continuously, make false accusations against her, poison her food.
The other option of these internet companies is to force her to form a family business with family members who refuse to take her phone calls or help her in any way when she is being stalked by criminals and who have not helped her at all in the business.
Most engineering companies remain proprietorships, because the owner has skills and knowledge which few others have.
Unfortunately in Indian internet industry, few are honest enough to acknowledge the merit and experience of a webmaster, they have no qualms taking credit for work they do not do.
Added bonus: We’ll help a fraud who has invested her money in jewellery, real estate and gold(and almost nothing online) steal the investors webmaster’s identity and savings, we worship the ground on which the fraud walks.
We’ll lie about our identity to the webmaster, we don’t think honesty is important.
That is the message from the powerful people in the Indian internet industry, we help mediocrity and frauds flourish, there is no place for merit.
Why is there no person with the vision or foresight to think beyond his own personal gain?
For are a domain name investor/bulk buyer trying to reduce the domain registration/renewal expenses, the reseller account may be the cheapest option available since prices are sometimes lower than those for retail customers.
However, a reseller account may be very risky for several reasons.
1.It is easy for companies or individuals with vested interests to make false allegations that they paid the investor for the domain names ( when they have not paid a single paisa/penny) and defame the investor. Unfortunately, some online decision makers and registrars are quick to believe these lies , even when no proof is available or can be provided by the liars. The investor does not even get an opportunity to defend himself or herself.
2.Numerous attempts are made to harass resellers to take over their business, since customer renewals are a recurring source of revenue. The people who harass do not know the exact nature of the portfolio , so domain investors/website owners are unfairly targetted without a proper understanding of their business.
The average internet user does not register a single domain and some falsely believe that revenues from a blog network are easy money. However, technical skills, knowledge and experience are needed to set up and maintain a blog network.
