I did translate it, it sounds like the names dropped and someone else maybe registered them? i don't know.

but thats not good, that really is not good. It kind of puts a different angle on the $6.99 vs $7.99 debate.

Stability is way more important, it's one thing to lose servers, and have HW failures, but it's another to lose data - that is unforgiveable IMO

edit: bnb001: I have taken the liberty of renaming this thread title. This problem needs exposure here.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

It may just have been new registrations or pending registrations. We're guessing.

I keep a record of the total number of domains I have at DS, so I would know if one evaporated, but I wouldn't know which one unless I did a reconcile.

If you have the means, it would be wise to do an audit.

After i posted i realized this was probably what most likely happened ,as far as new or pending. But as far as our domain numbers everything adds up over here.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

I will translate it for you guys.

1. bnb001 regged three domains at domainsite and has all the official receipt.
2. bnb001 then posted these domains for appraisal at idnclub at a time that giant was there.
3. domainsite deleted these three domains due to a technical problem and sent bnb001 an apology.
4. these domains are now regged under giant's whois data. bnb001 now wants them back.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

Questions, and lots of them...

I guess they had to go back to a backup and lost data.

why no disk mirroring?

why do we have to find out this way, this happened a week ago, why nothing on their homepage alerting us?

This is absolutely unforgiveable.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

I got a name that was registered around 29th or 30th, and then it now becomes registered on the 5th instead - DS gave me a free 5-day extension. :p

DNS back to DS default instead of ND.

Would advise everyone to check "name" by "name" against a personal backup if you have one.

Not knowing whether the outrage is due to hardware failure or hacker, i've also changed login password just in case.

I got a spreadsheet, but it's updated less often - once a week maybe. But I do record every name registered into notepad text file on a real time basis.

But i guess with the current situation, i'll need to do screen captures as well. Anyone has better idea of "proving" domain ownership?

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

I pulled all data from several accounts on the 26th August (Shortly before they went down) and everything seems to be there...
It was actually me trying to get better organised but it doses mean I have a complete list that is valid since before and after they had problems..

Oh my goodness.

The reconciliation is going to be a nightmare for me.

This is very worrying.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

If you have a list of punycodes you think you have in an excel, you can download a list of punycodes from DS and use a macro in your spreadsheet to cross match them.

if anyone needs a hand, just shout.

Re: Domainsite data corruption - GIANT,I need your help !

Those using Firefox can use this plugin that will screen grab any info you need, whois, names in your account etc, quickly and easily
Though, those of us with thousnds of names will be working for a long time!

I suggest you create a folder on your desktop, get some shots of your most important names and start saving them..
Get screenshots of your account when you ast it to 'Show all names'
