So. Most of the images I post in my journal are hosted on one of my business Web sites, and I woke up today to discover that the domain had expired and Network Solutions, in their infinite carelessness wisdom, neglected to inform me.

The domain has been re-registered, but it's going to be Monday or Tuesday'til it propogates out to all the name servers again. Until then, the site is unavailable.

I have three different domains at three different registrars, the earliest one being with Network Solutions -- and they're by far the most annoying folks. One is with Blue Razor, who I might have tentatively recommended before they were bought by GoDaddy, which is pure evil on a stick. The other one is with Dotster, which at $15/year isn't bargain basement but seems to be really competent, and I'll probably transfer the other two there.

GoDaddy is pure evil? I've found them to be cheap, competent, and reliable. I particularly like their stance on spam; the head of the GoDaddy abuse department reads news.admin.net-abuse.email regularly, and GoDaddy's official policy is to suspend the registration of any domain used in spam and registered by them, even if they don't host the site (which is a great idea, and rare among domain registrars).

Dotster has a long and ignoble history on news.admin.net-abuse.email; Dotster allows spammers, including ROKSO spammers, to register with them, and in fact actively encourages and solicits spammer business (because spammers often register hundreds of domains at a time). The only registrar with a worse track record for spam support is Joker, who appears to register only for spammers.

Passing on a compliment...
One of my new housemates, hakamadare checked out your polyamory site via the link on my journal, and said it was one of the best he's ever seen. =)
