I registered a
.cd (Democratic Congo Republic) domain in the past and it's now up for renewal in a couple of weeks. It seems, for some reasons (maybe political?) there have been changes and I'm unsure how to get some solid information.
Previously, domain name registration was delegated to a company called Conic at http://conic.cd/. Email was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. This company has now moved to http://conic.africa. My account still works with them and they assured me they are still responsible for the management of that domain name. I've had a good relationship with them for the last six years or so.
However, on http://nic.cd/ which I have to consider the authoritative site, there is only a very rudimentary message regarding the fact that Conic (and others) are no longer authorized to handle
.cd domains. As this site is more often down than up, I've taken a screenshot (see below). So, they have the official domain name, but don't appear serious.
I've contacted the email account mentioned (email@example.com) to get some clarification, but nobody has ever replied.
As the domain name I have is a really short one (just two characters) it's also quite expensive. I don't want to potentially lose that money.
This is why I'd like to ask what I could do to get some more authoritative information. Thanks!
