The geolocation site “IP2Location.com” has a bad database that’s incorrectly attributing search results to Rollernet that actually belong to other entities. This was brought to our attention after receiving two calls this week regarding Comcast IP addresses because this geolocation site incorrectly lists us as the “domain”. Although we’re probably easier to contact than Comcast, there’s little can do to help other than to suggest using a different geolocation service.
We’re not going to be releasing the updated Primary DNS service in June as previously anticipated. Since the control center interface for it is being rebuilt from scratch we decided it was the best time to add a templating feature, which has been requested often in the past. This will make Primary DNS a bit more than the basic thing it’s been in the past, but hopefully worth the wait.
We’re sad to report that there was a fatal rollover accident in our driveway this morning. As of now Airway Drive is closed until further notice. Our office can still be accessed via Barron and Longley, then turning on Louie heading towards Airway.
UPDATE: as of 14:45 Airway Drive has reopened to traffic.
Effective July 1, 2012 at 0:00 UTC, Public Interest Registry (PIR), the operator of the .org domain extension will increase the registry cost for .org registrations by $0.49.
As such, we will be increasing our registration price for .org domains from $11.50 to $11.99.
You may have noticed it’s been a bit quiet around here lately, but that’s not because we disappeared or anything. We’ve actually been working on adding new features to Primary DNS that have turned into a much larger project that originally planned.
AXFR support to Primary DNS is coming, which means adding more settings to its section in the account control center, but when we got down to it things were getting a bit too crowded and confusing in that section. So we decided to organize a bit by adding some jQuery and jQuery UI to help us so we can concentrate on features and not spend a lot of time with design (hey, we’re not designers). It’s a little bit of modernization that we hope won’t be the end of the world, but makes it easier to handle new features and work with existing ones. A preview teaser is included below.
