Forum Expiring

Post by Conn on Thu 29 Mar 2018 - 21:46

There is currently a behind curtains discussion that our current domain name, zeldix.net may expire on April, 2nd 2018

We are working hard to avoid it, but it is possible that we are only reachable over
zeldix.forumotion.com
for a few days from April, 2nd until we got the old name back!

Qwertymodo is the new Main Admin now (Founder account) and he's working hard to avoid any inconveniences and get the old domain back as fast as possible!

Sorry in advance for this, please bookmark above link in any case to have further access to zeldix during this time!

False alarm, everybody. It was more hassle than it was worth to attempt the registration transfer, so I just renewed everything as-is. There should be no interruption, we'll try again next year.

As far as I know, usually the https expires and thus becomes http. Then the annoing red warning pops up, until the secure protocol is renewed. I had no idea the domain could expire? Hopefully not.

Yes the domain expires as well. It was going to expire on Sunday (April Fools Day nonetheless). I was hoping to transfer to another registrar to bring the cost down and allow more control over the admin side of things, but forumotion doesn't allow proper transfers, so rather than deal with the hassle right off the bat, I just went ahead and renewed, giving us another year before I have to figure out how to deal with that.

I just love how everything expires with time. Like just think what the internet would be like if nobody renewed their website domain name or the likes. It's like the whole internet would die.

I hate any kind of service that makes you pay for something because of time. This means that all a person or company needs to do is just wait and guess what? Free money for them, pretty much.

Like a storage unit. All the storage unit company needs is a lot of time and then time becomes money. And this is easy money because guess what.... there is a lot of time to be had.
