dear Lamers and new readers,
we have a hell of a week behind us. Monsterserver gets down, SG site gets down, SG as a name has to change. And to make it complete:
My registred .tk name for the blog is taken away by dot TK, the provider of this awesome URL shortener.
Why? First I believed I was to late to renew the domain, you have to renew it for free once a year. But I checked and I did so.
Probably we’re just making to much traffic after one year, and in this case – or just after one year of registration- they drop your URL.
This is the message I got:
‘You are registering a SPECIAL domain.
What is a special domain?
We would be delighted to complete the registration for the SPECIAL DOMAIN that you have selected. It is likely to become a great piece of Internet Real Estate. With all of the good .com names already taken, it is a great idea to get your .TK now, while it is still available!
In addition to allowing users to register a Paid Domain and SPECIAL DOMAIN, Dot TK also offers you the opportunity to register a Free Domain . These are domains that can be registered for FREE and are pointed to or forwarded to an existing, live URL.”
So I checked the FREE domains. lameclanbb, lameclansg, sglameclan, lameclan2 are still free (Hooray 🙁 )
BUT: I took some initiative and registred www.lame-clan.tk for now.
hope you all agree.
I feel bad about this, especially now with the official SG-site going down.
I thing we should write them (dot TK) to reconsider, because I didn’t get a warning, they just mailed me to renew, and I did so!
Anyone who has the time and the english to help me writing an e-mail to change their mind, feel free.
