Just to share a related experience.
We had a hectic time with InterNic registering pipex-sz.net, we
nearly got the plug pulled mostly because their local post office
couldn't send mail addressed to Swaziland in the direction of
anywhere but Switzerland.
In the end I made a Swaziland-USA voice phone call and paid by AmEx
(never get the forex back now). Expensive and a lot of hassle all
Apparently the owner of the sasa.unon.org domain failed to pay its annual
domain name maintenance fee of I think $100 to Network Solutions (InterNIC
admins) by some June date deadline, and you guessed, the domain name is removed
from the ruoting table by NS..
There were a few articles on the Washington Post last week on cases related to
this, including a mishap to the MSNBC domain..
