I recently bought a .es domain for the purpose of creating a domain hack. I registered the domain with (SANE Systems, apparently). My card was charged, but the domain is listed as not registered. I have not yet been able to get in contact with them.

Their website seems to have a small form to register the site and to specify the nameservers, but when I fill it out it says "You have to specify the NIC handles first." I don't know how to get those. They have for example a box that says "Owner" with an example of SK86-ESNIC-F4. I have another website so I may have this information, but I don't know how to get it.

Tried contacting their support? – Lucas Kauffman Mar 21 '12 at 22:55
@LucasKauffman yes, their phone number doesn't work and they haven't replied to my email (only been a day) so maybe it's a scam – Explosion Pills Mar 21 '12 at 23:03
were you able to solve this issue? I registered a .es name today and am experiencing the same issue. Emailed them but no answer yet. Thanks. – user119635 May 2 '12 at 18:09
@xbora I was unable to get in contact with them either by email or phone. I called my bank and they reverted the charge. I would have liked the domain, but I'm not paying for nothing either. Let me know if you can get it to work. – Explosion Pills May 2 '12 at 18:17
I believe it is scam. I've tried to register a domain with them, they would not do that, neither would they answer email, and the phone on the site is a phone of a shop of some sort. – Roman Grazhdan May 6 '13 at 7:42

The DNS authority in Spain is NIC.ES They maintain a list of authoried regirstrars I am afraid, is not listed here so be careful and take your measures, it could be an untrusted site. I have asked directly to NIC.ES to confirm this issue, awaiting for response. Will update with their response.
