    So as most of you know I don't handreg too many domains .. but just tried now!

    However at both GoDaddy and Epik it seems hand-registrations are down .. kinda curious what sort of world it would be if there was no more hand-registrations possible! Talk about an explosion in the aftermarket .. all our half decent domains would double++ in value almost overnight and only go up from there!

    Anyhow .. feel free to discuss a world without handreg .. in the meantime @Joe Styler @Rob Monster @Paul Nicks @Sufyan Alani .. any idea what's going on? Is Verisign down and finally giving the world an excuse to break their damn contract with ICANN?

    Could be connection issue with V as I noticed a few other US based sites were timing out a few hours ago.

    I'm kind of relieved if it's down at the moment as I've been on a mad registration spree ;)

    "hand-registrations are down"

    What do you mean by that ? Are you unable to reg or trying to reg fresh expires ?

    Looks like a lot of GoDaddy's services are down right now - can't access my domain list and my websites that are hosted on GoDaddy aren't resolving.

    Is this a reverse psychology test?..

    **
    Initially an explosion perhaps, but killing hand-regs would eventually also kill the aftermarket. Something else like a blockchain-based internet would come and fill the void..quickly.

    There is something wrong globally. A number of websites are partially available. Afternic is up for me for example, some other (non-domaining) stuff is down.

    Now we will see what registrars and hosting companies are REALLY stable, I mean really and not just in heads of their PR departments.

    Yeah I've noticed issues today with timeouts.

    I honestly don't know how they envisioned the internet surviving a nuclear attack when it can go screwy on a normal Sunday.

    I've personally tried to bring stuff to Godaddy's attention for over a year that they just ignore....

    Literally I cannot make a payment on their site and when I try to get help, they just tell me to do what I've already done, and when they won't accept that as an answer, I just get blamed as if I've done something wrong or haven't given them enough information.

    When Godaddy doesn't even give a #$%@ whether customers can pay or not on their website, that's pretty bad.

    I called GD .. they said know issues for a couple hours .. I since was able to add to my cart .. but then couldn't pay .. eventually could.

    NameSilo seems to be down now as well with the standard CloudFlare error page.

    and I thought that was my home internet problem...

    Does anyone find your recent newly regged domain can't successfully park in Dan? Is that the same case?

    Godaddy is probally more effective when it isnt working rather than speaking to a member of staff that cannot help you regain your account after having lost your phone which if they cant send 2fa to the phone you lost access to you effectively lose your account

    Not inpressed with gd

    That way i hand reg thedomain names of my tech venture ideas at the time of having my tech venture concepts which gives me a date and time of idea which i can look back at to see how far ahead or behind facebook and google i was when i had the tech idea etc

    I dont need to buy the domains of other peoples ideas

    I've been unable to use their checkout for quite a while now.. when I try to get help, it's like they don't care enough to sway away from the scripted answers, and when that doesn't work, the customer of course gets blamed further for something Godaddy isn't fixing that is their problem.

    When Godaddy doesn't care that a customer can't pay because of an error in their checkout process, then that's very sh$##% of them to treat customers this way. Customers paying keeps them alive, and if they don't care that a customer can't pay.... it means you should probably transfer away from Godaddy.

    GD can't help it. And it will spread further. Level3/CL has major issues. It is affecting carriers. Their DNS (4.2.2.2) is down which is widely used.

    Edit: also issues at Cloudflare which doesn't help either:

    I've been trying to get Godaddy to fix some of the problems for well over a year now, and they just refuse again and again, while pushing blame onto me, despite the fact I've done everything they've asked in the past and nothing has fixed the problem, so they are just giving me the run around... total BS, the company is trash. I'm not buying domains with Godaddy anymore
