I have some problems with my old host (fastwebsites.com aka
namecow.com) and I can't resolve that.
I want to continue promoting this newsgroup so I have found a new host
and a new domain name.
DNS is slow so if the link doesn't work, try again tomorrow.
This is your new website:
I someone knows how I can get *my* domain (www.aacit.net) back from
those Canadians without giving in to ransom, let me know.
I have a lot of work to do, for you. Mail everyone that links to
www.aacit.net and request to update their links. Some help is much
appreciated. If you have a Citroen related website please consider
including a link to www.aacity.net
Oh, and it's still as boring as it was before.
Hi Johan, on your page you provided some links for people to learn
how to access usenet newsgroups, and you asked for assistance to find
appropriate links for users of other languages.
The german users should klick to http://news.individual.de /
This is the largest independend newsgroup server for Germany, it is
run by the staff of the Technical University Berlin. Unfortunately
they have stopped providing this service for free to the publc. Non-
scientific use is now charged with 10 Euros per year - which I find
very reasonable for the good service.
If anybody is interested: Another link, it shows my Xantia at the
stellite relais station in Raisting/Bavaria
please replace spam-muelleimer with fk-newsgroups for e-mail contact
Had a message from Namecow.com afa Fastwebsites.com.
Your domain has expired, and very soon it will be in redemption, on
11/05. At that time it will cost $250USD to bail your domain out of
Internet Jail. At this moment the cost is $9.95 USD. As a courtesy we
informing you of your options. If the domain is important to you. We
suggest that you arrange for payment asap.
What should I name it randsom or hyjacking?
Are namecow.com and fastwebsites.com realy blacklisted by credit card
2Rowdy ( email@example.com) gurgled happily, sounding much like they
were saying :
"Your domain name has expired, and very shortly we'll be able to get our
paws on it. As soon as we can, we'll register it ourselves then try to sell
it back to you. Alternatively, you can give us some money now to prevent us
having to spend any money ourselves."
If they are, that tells you ALL you need to know about if they're good
people to do business with.
I don't get it. $9.95 seems like a fair price to keep a domain, as long as
it's not something they charge too frequently. What do others pay for them?
Most of you know I don't keep up on all the technical aspects of this stuff,
is Rowdy being extorted, and if so, what can he do?
Adrian has it pegged.
No, $9.95 is pretty much the going rate ... but he needs to get it
paid ASAP as it's in the 30-day redemption period. What they are
threatening is, as he said, to buy it up if 2Rowdy doesn't pay it off
on time, then charge him whatever they want to buy it back from him.
IOW, they're squatters making a bet that he'll want it ... but they
are warning him.
He doesn't need to deal with them; he can reg. it elsewhere, with any
registrar he wants to use, for that same $9.95 likely ... but the
squatters *will* grab it if he doesn't move to save it.
Message i.d.:< gurgled happily, sounding much like
You made me look it up :-)
I can't pay them. Unless by international money order which I won't.
My credit card, internationally accepted, is not accepted by them.
No. They have locked it and only they, and no-one else, can unlock it.
My new, Belgian, registrar has tried it but couldn't. That's why I
have registered the new name, like the old but with a litte twist at
Canadians. Good people, but sometimes a bit strange.
