I think they are running almost completely on auto-pilot with this,
returning bogus error messages, or none at all and what not.
A definite downturn from doing the process MANUALLY (!) until some
time ago.

I tried to get the names of some hosts changed for about 6 months,
without success. Ultimately, my upstream provider (UUnet) used it's
"liaison contact" to make it happen in a day: Money talks, apparently.

Can anyone point out an alternate registrar that is set up to register
and maintain hosts? Based on what I see at, I strongly
assume that its impossible to register domains on DNS servers with
NSI where the registered hosts are not in NSI's own registry. How are
people's experiences shifting this essential service to another
registrar ?
