Domain Name Outage This Morning

By Eric Goldman

This morning the blog suffered an outage due to a problem with the domain name renewal. With Rex’s help, we got everything straightened out and we should be back in business. Fortunately, the domain never really left my host’s control, so there was never a serious risk of porn-napping. I will say this, though–the administrative procedures to manage a domain name at a place like GoDaddy are very taxing, even to me.
