Update 19.04: Supposedly the domain name Drclix.com has been seized by the US Department of Justice. The following message is displayed when you try to access the website:
I believe this is not true. I guess this is either the exit strategy of John Novak or maybe the site has been hacked? The seizure is completely fake, yeah at first glance it looks like the domain has been seized, but actually that is not the case. Also the other 2 websites owned by John Novak ListBuildSurf.com and ListBuildTactics.com are “seized” as well, but both domains redirecting to Drclix. The image displayed on Drclix is just an image of another seized domain.
Lets shade some light on this subject – what happens with domain names when they are seized? First of all, the relevant government authority will send a request to the domain registrar to take specific actions against the domain names in question. The registrar is obligated to lock the client status codes and the server status codes in order to prevent the owner from updating the domain details.
On this screenshot you can see how these status codes looks on a seized domain:
Now take a look below at the status codes of Drclix, only the Client Transfer is prohibited. This status code instructs the registry to reject any requests from other registrars for the object to be transferred into their sponsorship. This status has no effect on the registrar’s ability to update, delete, or renew the domain and is enabled by default.
As you can see, there is no clientDeleteProhibited, clientRenewProhibited, clientTransferProhibited, clientUpdateProhibited, serverDeleteProhibited, serverTransferProhibited, serverUpdateProhibited. Meaning the domain is not seized at all!
Still not convinced? Ok, lets take a look into the name servers. On seized domains, the registrar must update the name servers of the domain to the name server specified by the relevant authority. The name servers of seized domains are either one of the following combinations:
NS1.CIRFU.NET and NS2.CIRFU.NET
NS1.SEIZEDSERVERS.COM and NS2.SEIZEDSERVERS.COM
Or alternatively, name servers are registered as ns1.seized-domain.com and ns2.seized-domain.com that point to a server under the control of ShadowServer.org and have the following ip address: 188.8.131.52
As you can see on the screenhot below, neither of the name servers mentioned above are associated with Drclix, their name servers are still pointing to CloudFlare, which proves that the domain drclix.com is not seized.
I am pretty much sure the domain is not seized, just someone want to make it look like that. Now there are two possible scenarios here. Either the site has been hacked and the hacker posted the message about the seized domain, or John Novak ran away and made it to look like the domain is seized. I would wait day or two before jumping into conclusions. I will update this article as soon as I have more information. If Drclix has been hacked, then John Novak should post that info on his twitter profile and let us know what is happening with Drclix.
Drclix Review – Description:
Drclix is a new Paid to Click program, launched on January 5, 2014. Owner of Drclix is John Novak and he also owns some traffic exchange and list building programs like ListBuildSurf.com and ListBuildTactics.com. The name Drclix comes from the admin profession – a doctor. Members of Drclix can earn by viewing advertisements, completing signup offers, playing the grid game and by referring others to the program and earn click commissions from their activity. As a new PTC program, Drclix will be placed on our New Sites list for a test period of at least a year, counting from the launch date.
Things we do like about Drclix.com:
Paying – Drclix is paying its members. Payments are processed daily and payment proofs can be found on their website. We’ve tested the site and we got paid:
Daily Payments – Payments to members are processed daily. Not instant, but close enough, you should receive your payment in a few hours of request.
Fixed Minimum Payout – The minimum payout is fixed at $4.00 and does not increase after each cash out, so this is a good thing, there are no increasing payout thresholds.
Affiliate System – You can refer up to 100 new members to Drclix. It’s not unlimited, but a downline of 100 direct referrals should be a solid referral base that will help you to increase your daily earnings.
Free Worldwide Service – There are no registration restrictions, people from all over the world can join as a member for free. Users can make money without having to invest any money to get started.
Buxenger Supported Site – Buxenger is a free desktop software that helps you organize, monitor and view ads from your numerous PTC website accounts. With Buxenger you can view all your accounts statistics and overall summary in one screen, view ads from all accounts and also create new accounts on multiple websites at the same time.
Forum – They have a forum. In our opinion, a PTC site should have a forum. The forum is a place where members and staff can communicate with each other. Members can post their success stories or doubts, post payment proofs, share the experience that they had with the site, ask for support and stay informed about the recent changes made to the site. Usually, on the forum you can notice the first signs if something is wrong. If members complain about non-payments or payment delays, then most likely the site is experiencing problems.
Downsides – Things to Pay Attention to:
New Program – From our experience, many new PTC sites fail to stand the test of time. Since we can’t predict which sites could possibly turn into long lasting successful programs (even for those programs from reputable and experienced owners), we do not recommend buying memberships and investing in new sites (under a year old). In our opinion, it would be better to wait some time until a new site proves to be stable and credible, rather than investing in the early phase and risk to lose your investment if the site stops paying. However, the choice is yours and it is up to you to make your own decisions. But be sure to test a new site if you plan to invest. It is best to do your research to make sure it is a legitimate opportunity. If you decide to invest in a new PTC, never invest more than you can afford to lose.

Drclix Review – Bottom Line:
Drclix is a PTC program owned by an experienced traffic exchange owner who appears to have good reputation in the TE industry. However, PTC is quite a different model than TE, so we’ll see how well they will do with this project. Drclix is still very new PTC and as such it will be placed on our New Sites list for a period of at least a year. As for any new PTC, if you are considering to upgrade, our recommendation would be to test the site, do your research and make sure it is a reliable opportunity before buying membership.
