Rather important update.

Post by Fel »

The domain that hosts us is going to expire sometime in the next few months. Exactly when, I don't know. I haven't received any emails from the DNS people.

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, except that I have a bit of a sticky problem. When my house was robbed, the notebook that held my username and password for the DNS service was taken with it. Unfortunately, the option to reset the password using the domain name asks challenge questions that I didn't set up, thus I don't know the answer to them. So, that means I can't see any details about the domain. I've renewed it from the outside, but I don't know how long it renewed it for. And the DNS service we use like doesn't email me. Ever. So I'll never know exactly how long the domain is good and may miss a payment and have it expire in the future.

I just wanted everyone to be aware of this, so if you come in one day and find the site down, with the DNS unable to resolve, that's why.

Good time to remind everyone that I can be reached on twitter at @FelWrites and via email at faalken@hotmail.com just in case.

To make it clear, the domain WAS renewed...I just don't know how long the registration is good for. The "pay from outside when you're not logged into your account" options were rather barebones. But I did make a payment, and it did go through. So however long that payment was good for is how long we don't have to worry about it.

by the way the registered admin/technical contact is still recorded as William Hughes aka Spec8472
so maybe he gets those emails ?

did you try contacting your registrar by phone to restore your account ?

Afraid not, I've been super busy all day and it slipped my mind.

I'll try next Monday, my next day off. I sleep during the day, so I doubt I'll be awake during their business hours.

Sorry for all the grief and happy that you got it sorted.
