What happened to Zhome.com????

Recommended Posts

I just tried visiting the site and it looks like it has been converted to some kind of real estate site?

Looks like the domain registration expired.

I wonder if he can get it back, or is it gone for good now...

It's probably still up and running quietly and still accessible if only we knew the old IP address.

When I tried to renew the domain name on-line - I received a message from the server that because a major VISA/MC data base was compromised - the transaction could not be processed. I was told to contact my VISA/MC provider to "unfreeze" the account.

I did that, and it took a couple days for them to figure out what was going on. VISA told me that the transaction was held, because payment was being sent outside the USA, and that they would unfreeze the transaction...

I'm not really sure now just what the problem was... but the domain's (both ZHome.com and Becksystems.com) were renewed. ZHome.com was renewed one day late - and that resulted in the domain name being automatically deleted from the DNS... I don't know how long it will take to get it reentered... then proporogate though the system - but usually it's at least 24 to 48 hours...

If it ain't one thing - it's another..

FWIW,

That's good to hear Carl. I immediately got an email from someone asking what happened to the paint code gallery (so people actually do look at it!) Anyway I was worried a cyber-squatter may have swooped in after it expired - they can offer the name back up for "sale" to you for tons of $$$ (happened to a friend of mine).

Ever since the same thing happened to ZCCA.org, I always backorder my own sites just in case...

There have been cases in Fla where cyber squaters have been forceably removed from domains and had to pay punitive damages for what they bought to effectively kidnap. Because there is a presidence, maybe a trip to small claims court would get the transfer done if it becomes an issue. All that had to be proven was that the previous site holder had exemplory content investment in the site and that the name was integral to and thoroughly associated with the content, and that the current squater had essentially no actual interest in the site or name related content. I think we have proof of both. A link mill obviously is squatting on the site, and they are essentially empty space content wise.

The site you see is like a search engine site. It seems to take all the sites that loose their registration. I have seen many sites that have been shifted to a site that looks like that.

Your right Carl, it will take a few hours to two days to propagate through and come back up on line.

We just need to wait....

thanks,

The site seems to be back to normal. You don't realize how much you miss something till it's gone.
