I have had a domain since the mid '90s, first registered with a UK company which we will call P2.
P2 were then bought by another company appropriately nearly called P1. They upgraded the control panel facilities and security but otherwise business as usual.
In 2017, unknown to me and with no warning, P1 were dissolved and their domain name acquired by a healthcare provider in the USA. My domain was passed on to the US company, ENOM who have never contacted me or notified me of the transfer and do not appear to continue the control panel facility or credentials. At the moment, I have no method of renewing, transferring or updating the domain details.
The domain is about to come up for renewal...
How does a domain come to be transferred out of the country of registration, or become allocated to a foreign registrar in the event of failure of the existing registrar?
What can I do to ensure the domain stays with me?
