Recently, it has made me *very* nervous after two bad experiences
registering domain names. Firstly, Network Solution's new pre-payment
system debited 70 USD from my card without giving me a receipt or selling
me the domain (to their credit, they sorted it out for me the next day -
possibly because I was writing a feature about domain names at the
time!). Secondly, this week I tried to buy a domain name from a German
company called 'Joker', which was recommended to me by a reliable
source. The joke was on me, as the ordering system hung immediately after
I entered my cc number. Two calls to the credit card company confirmed, to
my relief, that this time my card hadn't been debited. However, I am
reluctant to try either of these systems again !

Has anyone had similar experiences? Perhaps I'm jinxed with these things!
