"Need Your advise on something :
I have had a blog about linux since 2007, today after 6 years I transfered my domain name (shevin.info) to Hostgator, when I noticed they charged my credit card 5 times, I emailed and they said they are sorry and refund me soon, but soon I got an email from their billing depratment they said my domain got deleted and blocked because I am from Iran and acording to US law they are not allowed to do bussines with me, the sad part is , they do NOT let me to transfer my domain back to godaddy.com
they have chagned my domain name ownership from ME to Hostgator,
I am pretty sure what they do to me is illegal, since I am In USA LEGALY and not in IRAN and they should NOT deny service to me because of my birthplace...so Hostgator hijacked my domain name...I need everyone's advise, is there any media or place I can go and ask to kick their ass ? what should I do ? I knew apple did it and they had to appolgize ( they had denied to sell an iranian an ipad after medias talked about it they appologized that iranian) which media would help me ?"
