Website : DomainPeople
Posted by webmaster on 2013/2/25 13:41:05 (7794 reads)

Well, I don't know it it is good or bad, but I keep having the same trouble with DomainPeople (Canada based).

They seem totally oblivious to the fact that a private person can own an .org address

I am now once again trying to get them to change my email on the registration so that I will be able to get in and change my name server settings before they fail... but the last years they simply cant accept the fact that I am not a company/organisations... I guess I will have to make phony letterheads and documents proving that the organization is me, ofc they wont be phony since it really IS me owning it, but phony in the meaning that I have never needed any documents with letterheads and I have always payed my utility bills myself, not as the organisation... which I have also payed with my own creditcard, though that doesn't seem to matter either...

I hope I will get this fixed before the old nameservers are removed by DynDNS who has them.

Yay, I got a response and now I have control again

That feeeeeeeels gooooooood

Now I will consider moving this to my other registrar where I have everything else

However, some stats for you all, we have 83000 hits per month on this site, quite ok for a fansite for a product that hasn't had a release in ten years or so

I've had great luck with Godaddy, and they currently have a domain transfer special deal they are advertising.

Hmmm, I am quite happy with dyn.com very easy domainhandling and such in there and fast responses for me at least... but I do pay for the services :D


reviews for GoDaddy varies wildly...

If you like them, then stay with them by all means. I've used Godaddy for maybe 7 years now, and I currently have 3 sites there, tho they are 'brochure' sites, no server side stuff. Still, NetSol wanted $400 a year for me to keep tonguemonster.com, and tho I had it for 17 years, I decided to let it go. I think NetSol bought it for resale, but it was last night's guacamole and I was tired of it.

Well, I am not hosting my data anywhere, they just manage my domainnames and dns
I have my servers in my apartment on my own line

All I need is for the dns to point people to the right place... $400/year sounds horrendly expensive, they apparently wanted you, and other customers, to go away...

 Re: DomainPeople
That does sound like a lot. Is there a reason to stay with them? I use godaddy.com and only get charged the domain registration fees per domain per year. I don't host my own site at home because I've found that it's much cheaper to let 3rd party hosting company do it.

 Re: DomainPeople
I personally use dyn.com for dns/domainname
except for this sites domainname which happened to be created on the pre-domainpeople site back in 2004 and which I since then have had some trouble getting control over due to the fact it was registred with a now extinct email account :D

None of them charge $400/year
the prices are something like ~$20-$30 for the domains and about the same for the dns hosting per year... I host the system at home because of the control I get over it :D

It's running on a small PC (AMD) with OpenSolaris on it, running Apache, MySQL and PHP
There are also other websites on it with different domainnames, none of which pulls as many hits or load as the Imagine site :D

It's well cooled but is sensitive to power and network outages, otherwise it's fine, the power outtages are under works (looking into UPS)

 Re: DomainPeople
NetSol (Network Solutions) plays a game where if the domain in question is desired by someone else, they then raise the price for renewal by the original owner. I could have had it transferred to GoDaddy, moved the files, etc. and saved money that way but I no longer cared about that domain, so I let it go. It now belongs to someone else, and they are welcome to it.
