I don't know what they are up to but it feels like a scam. I was informed by OnlyDomains.com that my domain name was being transferred to Instra. I had been paying $15 per year there for the domain and Instra was going to charge $75 per year, and maybe some extra shady fees - like maybe a "restore fee" of $77 per year.
And my admin and technical contacts on the domain have been changed to some numeric user at PrivateRanger.com - potentially locking me out of my own domain. The original email from OnlyDomains said if I don't confirm the transfer it will revert back to them. Right now, I'm scared to follow any links in the Instra email in case they trap me.
I can only assume they are trying to buy customers from cheep domain companies with the intention of milking them.Stay well away.
I was taken aback when I blocked a domain name for for a future plan that did not go live. To my surprise they have billed me $55/- automatically about 15 days before domain renewal without any of my consent. When I raised a helpdesk request to refund, they sent me a for that they told me to print it , sign and send it(enough troubled to snatch away my money!!).
It is more than 10 days. They have sent me a mail stating some problem and not ready to commit what will be refunded and the printed form has all statements stating full refund is not possible. I advise everyone to be careful about this fraudulent ISP.
About InstraInstra Corporation is a privately owned company based in Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 1997, Instra Corporation has expanded its initial Domain Name business from New Zealand and Australia into a leading, world-wide Domain Registrar.

Many companies and household brand names from around the world take advantage of Instra’s unique and sophisticated “Domain Management System” to actively manage their online intellectual property. Our Customers come from over 160 different countries.
Instra is active in ensuring we are constantly providing our customers with new domain name spaces, and are regularly updating our domain name offering from around the world. Instra is first in ensuring we offer our valued corporate customers with knowledge about new spaces that are becoming available and the Registry processes required to secure these domain names.

Instra Corporation’s Global DNS system was designed to be robust, fast, reliable, and is able to continue to operate with little performance loss when large network outage has occurred. This is because our DNS system is deployed globally, with server hosted in three continents worldwide. Our DNS system is scalable, and further expansion of this system is planned in the near future.
Our Global DNS system is hosted in world class data centers, and each data centre provides us with multiple upstream providers, which minimizes the possibility of any single network outage brining our DNS nodes offline. In the unlikely event of a regional network outage which affects access to one of our DNS nodes, DNS requests are diverted to our one of our other nodes, ensuring that the end user is not affected by this outage.
Our DNS system is powered by a database engine, which allows real time updating of domain name zones. Every change that is made to a domain name zone is instantaneously updated across each DNS worldwide to ensure that the zone data across all DNS is up to date at all times. This data is sent via secure channel to ensure the integrity of the DNS data remains intact.
Along with our advanced DNS system, our core websites and APIs are also located in multiple locations worldwide. This ensures that our web sites and API engines are also fast, robust, reliable and available to use.

I was attracted to Instra.com because they were based in Australia and offered a diverse range of top level domain names. However, they were slow to contact me during the name registration process. I had to shoot them an email to get a call back from their staff for the process to continue. This was for an initial domain. Further down the track I registered for another domain name, which I later wished to cancel. They were very quick to debit my money. After one support ticket and an separate one+ week later. I still have been refunded my money, and I still have an in-process domain I no longer require.
Their service and support(well lack off. Not responding to emails/tickets) is disgusting.
I won't use or recommend Instra.com in the future.
I'm done with Instra, they appear to have no moral standing.
The worst domain provider I used in 13 years
The worst part, though, is I edited some mx records to change their priority. 3 days later mx lookups are returning nothing and my mail is down. How in the hell do they delete and push out 0 mx records from me changing the priority of the records? Unacceptable. The only reason I went with them is because godaddy and network solutions were not offering .it domains. As soon as one of them offer it, I'm transferring.
