According to a tweet from the Twitter account of Domaining.com, the Domaining.com website may have been compromised. I have not independently confirmed the veracity of the tweet:
Urgent: https://t.co/yvF1mB9mIF has been apparently compromised, login has been closed. We were not story any CC data but change your password in other services if you were using the same. More info later, sorry.

I do not have details about what information may have been accessed, but I would imagine a big concern for Domaining.com users is passwords. Users with accounts on Domaining.com should strongly consider changing duplicate passwords on other services. In addition, other industry service providers should be aware of this issue to be on the lookout for logins that may be utilizing duplicate passwords.
It is always advisable to not reuse passwords on different websites and platforms. You might also consider using different logins when possible. In addition, using 2 factor authentication is always recommended.
I hope Francois provides more information about this and highlights this on Domaining.com so more people are made aware of the issue.
If I learn more about this, I will share it.
Thanks Elliot for sharing the security alert.
Now that login has been closed, my priority is to contact all our members about the breach, to ensure they change their passwords on others services if they are using the same or a similar one.
So I will make a point about the breach later.
I never received contact from yourselves advising of the breach. I was informed by Norton internet security. Scarily, it wasn’t just an email address that was compromised. It was all this information: Password, Full Name, PayPal Account Email, IP Address-32 Bit
yupper…domaining is down hard..
Domain investing is nearly dead, not many are interested anymore tbh
Single names have no pull over quality content which means ,,,, no value ,,, which means ,,,, your website will become a ghost town
It nearly is already comparing to 7 years ago
Domain investing is a thing of the past soon just like domain parking
Time to move on soon elliot
2020 was the best year my business ever had and 2021 will probably be the third best year barring any unexpected large sales. Domain investing is far from dead, but I’m sorry if it’s not working out for you.
You can look at this year’s record setting DNJournal YTD sales report to see how the market is doing. All sales in the top 100 public are six figures. That’s the tip of the iceberg.
Truth is that 2021 has been a record setting year for domain sales
Check the #s
The Truth is this is the START of domains being valuable not the end.
As Dan said, 2021 is a record breaker and we have still 2 months to go.
The truth is many have failed to secure domains of value when they had the chance.
The truth is domains will be around long after we are all dead.
The truth is domain parking is still alive and well.
The truth is it may be over for YOU, It is not over for those that have done their homework.
The truth is domains are still at a fraction of their value mostly because of domainers not realizing the TRUE value of their domains.
That’s the truth!
That *IS* the truth.
