URL parking

Hello there,

Some of you who use URL forwarding to direct names to NameDrive may find that your domains are currently not resolving or that traffic is down. This is becuase of an almighty blunder on our registrar's part. This has now been corrected, but it will be a matter of hours for the changes to take place.
You will naturally be compensated for any loss in earnings.
This only affects a portion of domains which are parked using URL forwarding to ndparking.com

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Ed

Re: URL parking

Ed,

I've just noticed that you serve up adult stuff on the same IP # as non-adult.

I'm no SE guru, but I'm pretty sure the adult stuff will blackmark the IP # with lots of content filter providers and possibly mainstream SE's as well.

I think you should consider having your system assign a different IP # to any names that are placed in the adult category by the domain owner.

That may even be why you're blacklisted in China.

As I said I'm no guru and I'm quite happy to be proven wrong by anyone and everyone, but worth thinking about.

Another suggestion - I often have trouble deciding what cateogires to assign certain names. It would be nice if you put up a cateory map on the site with extra info about what exactly some of the subcategories are for. Which cat/subcat should I be placing city domains? Surname domains? Firstname domain?

Thanks.

Re: URL parking

yeah, put the gambling cateogory on a third IP

and don't forget to move the mainstream off the blacklisted IP to a new one preferably on another class C!

Re: URL parking

Re: URL forwarding

I cannot apologise enough for this. I was up at intervals through the night to check but it seems it's only just coming back online now.
It took so long, as you discussed among yourselves, as it had to propagate across DNS around the world.
This is an heinous error by our registrar. We are disgusted that they can let such a simple thing as an auto-renew. We are considering legal action and have already negotiated a registrar change with one of the most respected registrars in the world who's represented here in Vegas.
This has cost us not only in financial terms in the last hours, but also in future and for how we are perceived by customers past and present. It has been horribly frustrating to have to sit and wait for the DNS to propagate. I can only hope that you can show understanding for why this happened.

You will be fully compensated for any loss and with a bonus on top of that, there is nothing more than we can do to apologise and ensure you don't lose any money as a result of this.

If you have any questions about your individual account, you can of course contact me.

Re: Adult content.

Thanks for the pointer. We will look into de-adulting the feed.

Re: URL parking

It makes a refreshing change that the company has stood up and taken the rap rather than just ignore it and hope it went away...
Kudos to ND for that..

When you do it, don't forget to put ndparking.com on a seperate IP # of it's own, as it has both adult and non-adult domains pointed to it, which puts the IP # in porn filters too, degrading all domains pointing to it and all names on that IP #.

This is URGENT, BTW!

As a bonus, you should also set up SPF TXT records in the DNS of all parked domains you run DNS for to help prevent them being used in email spoofing.

A simple

86400 IN TXT "v=spf1 -all"

in your generic zone file is all that is required to mark them as domain names that never have email sent from them.

Re: URL parking

Why not simply register the main domain or domains for 10 years? And then every 2-3 years re-extend the term to the full 10 years. Then there's 0.00% chance of this kind of problem sneaking up on you, since you've got a decade to act! My key site domains are registered through 2012 or later...
