Hosting is hard

I received a note recently from the guys who do most of my dns hosting -- DNSArt. After 7 years of providing DNS services, they've decided to call it quits. I've done business with them since before they got into the DNS business -- they're an entrepeneurial sort, and have nothing but great service from them.

In the beginning their services were free. Then they had to go to a modest fee in order to quell some of the abuse a free service can attract. The thought was that having a credit card on file would discourage a lot of the abuse, but it turns out stolen cards are easy enough to come across that they continued to have problems. After all this time, they've finally decided to just give up on hosting dynamic domain name services.

That's fair. I understand.

So anyway, this puts me in a situation where I'm going to have to start making changes to registration records for the various domain names I've registered over the years. I've got it narrowed down to 8 that I still care about. The registrations are tied to three different registrars, which have have me as owner using at least 5 different email addresses and 4 different dns configurations.

Since I've moved around a bit in the last 10 years, none of them have my current address. Most of them have one of my first email addresses. None of them have a working phone number for me.

I've got a little under 90 days to get this straightened out.

I suspect it's going to be painful. Strike that. I know it's going to be painful.

There are various hositng companies that offer free sites,but in nearly every case they will put ads on your pages,and limit what you can is one, but there are numerous others.netfirms will also let you use a subdomain for free,such as do a search on "free web hositng" to find other companieswith similar offerings.But a paid site can be had for very little money these days.You can get a domain for less than $10/year, and a web sitefor as little as $3-4 / month (although the rock bottom pricesmight require you to sign up for 2-3 years at a time) is a good hositng company and their lowest price(with 3 year signup) is $5/month.References :
