Josh Tenenbaum Errant ramblings


After hosting my domains with Godaddy for a few years, I was tired of the extra charge for private registration. I found that Hover offers it free and a few months back, I switched one of my domains. Wow! Godaddy really made that hard: When I authorized the transfer, Godaddy immediately stopped resolving DNS lookups even before domain propagation completed—this resulted in any email or web requests failing because their server did not return those server ips. When I called them, they either were clueless and did not know what they were doing or deliberately misled me to believe they had not done that and were not at fault. To make a long story longer, becareful leaving Godaddy—setup a new Name Server and change it before you approve the domain transfer.


Hope this saves somebody else…
