New Site up and running
Well, finally the new site is up and running, even though just in fledgeling form. I’ve got the first few posts uploading, and the gallery will be filling up by the day – all the behind-the-scenes work is done and it’s just a matter of uploading content from the various parts of my drive. The last site was entirely manually managed, and had become a bit of a beast to manage, let alone maintain.
It’s been something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time, though I was hampered recently due to a debacle with DomainPeople.com.I was very much in danger of losing my domain name registration, as they emailed me to say my registration was due for expiry, but then subsequently refused to acknowledge the email adress as viable (not the same as the one they had on record).
Having moved country twice, and house 4 times since I first registered (in 2002!) The chances of me having the same ISP, let alone ISP based email address was small to NONE. Silly buggers. They then asked me to post Photo ID, which is utterly ridiculous, as I could have posted one of my brother or, frankly, anyone. There’s NO way they would be able to tell whether that was me or not if I wasn’t physically stood in front of them.
VERY long story short (2 months of chasing). I finally got my domain registered again with them a couple of days short of the expiry. I have since transferred everything to my other provider and registrar YOUR-SITE.com. Your-Site have always been fantastic, and incredibly service minded.
Happy Rico now!
