It has no nameservers hence the "INACTIVE" state.

Subject: [DNS] Domain registered through DNA shows status inactive


| Hi All,
|
| I am hoping you can give me some advice on the following:
|
| I have a client that wants to host a domain he has paid for through Domain
| Names Australia. He paid for the domain online by credit card back in
early
| June I believe.
|
| The domain name is koshiki.net.au
|
| A whois search shows the following:
| Domain Name:             koshiki.net.au
| Last Modified:           Never Updated
| Registrar ID:            R00020-AR
| Registrar Name:          Explorer
| Status:                  INACTIVE
|
| Registrant:              AUSTRALIAN KOSHIKI ASSOCIATION
| Registrant ID:           ABN 80243045625
|
| Registrant ROID:         C1677057-AR
| Registrant Contact Name: Glenn Stephenson
| Registrant Email:        g.stephenson&#167;uws.edu.au
|
| Tech ID:                 C1677057-AR
| Tech Name:               Glenn Stephenson
| Tech Email:              g.stephenson&#167;uws.edu.au
|
| Now thats interesting!!!! Registered through Explorer and status INACTIVE.
| What on earth is that? I have tried to get DNA staff to ring me back to
get
| this sorted out but they never answer incoming calls and I am yet to
receive
| a return call after leaving a message on their answering machine.
|
| Can anyone suggest the best approach to get this sorted. Should I even
| bother trying to get it resolved? (I've read plenty of stories about DNA
on
| this list). I am inclined to get the client to request a refund and
organise
| a new domain name in the .asn.au or org.au address space (they are an
| association). I notice that DNA does not offer asn.au or org.au names.
|
| This little outfit is a non-profit association (not actually registered as
a
| not for profit though ... not sure why) and can ill afford to be ripped
off
| for the fee charged by DNA. I think they charged $237 for 2 years which
| seems a bit excessive to me. Especially when there does not seem to be any
| service to go with it.
|
| Any ideas or comments welcomed.
