I'd consider that to be part of the lesson about this or that and move on. I think that's nothing compared to what I've seen spent over the years but some may think it's a lot and lose sight of their real goals.
Support is no longer free so if there is some help required they charge for it. The employees demand to get paid so we pay to get support which pays those employees. Again, there are folk that don't understand this and will get upset when this happens.
BUT WAIT!!! There is an issue worth noting. DNS PROPAGATION. If you register a domain, it can take days for the world to know about it. Did you give it time?
Am needing some input/advice on what feels like a sticky (and icky) situation.
I have a blog where I'm launching a new small business from, and I wanted to point my blog to a custom domain name. So, I bought myself a domain name via a domain registrar that appeared to have positive reviews online (though honestly I didn't look too closely - I feel I rushed into it).
I then followed Blogger's instructions around pointing the blog to newly acquired domain name but pieces seemed missing in the domain's DNS space... I emailed the domain registrar and asked them if they could assist. They wrote back and said that if I wanted to make changes to the DNS settings that they charge a one-time fee for that. Now, I've registered domain names before, with a company I should've obviously gone back to, and they never charged extra for this.
I didn't appreciate what felt like a 'cash grab' so I wrote them and asked them if I could cancel my domain registration with them, as I felt I'd made a mistake in registering my domain name with them.
Needless to say, they didn't like this and wrote back to say that there was nothing they could do, I'm stuck with them. BUT that they would be happy to transfer my domain name to another provider after a "60 day grace period."
Obviously, I've lost my $11 and change for this, and I don't care about getting that money back, I just want to get my domain off of this registrar because I feel like they're a bad company and I'd like to go back to the company I'm used to registering domains with...
ANY help/input/advice would be much appreciated!!!
thanks in advance,
