[ADMIN] NEW DOMAIN PARKING SUSPENDED

Postby STrRedWolf on Fri Sep 05, 2008 4:37 pm

We are currently suspending new domain parking for the time being. This is not my decision, unfortunately, but from KeenSpot CTO Kisai. Forward all complaints and requests to Kisai for the time being.

EDIT, as of Jan 8 2009, the following domains are registered to comicgenesis, yes that's 81 (171 for keenspot), out of the 661 master list, so that's a turnover rate of almost 100 per year, this check hasn't tested to see if the comic is still available.

Comicgenesis domains:
actionporncomic.com
alwayslazy.com
antibunny.com
astorauth.com
asylumworks.com
back2roxboro.com

No worries, we'll advise people if asked.

I added this information to the CGWiki (on the Tutorials page) for easy referencing.

I'd love to, except that it won't let me edit the front page.

I don't know if it's been protected or something...

Domain parking is canceled pending reevaluation of how it's being handled now.

- It takes 3 days to 'setup' a domain, it should take 3 minutes
- It takes 3 days to 'undo' a domain if the comic becomes abandoned.
- Of all the domains that CG hosts, about half are abandoned or were left to expire.

If/when this comes back there will be some requirements
- Established comics >30comics
- Runs specific ad setups only (non .comicgenesis.com domains are not seen as comicgenesis sites and thus ads become an issue)

Other criteria may be added. The problem is really that the oldsetup entailed too much manual work, not as much as 4 years ago, but the affordability of domains makes it too easy for people to buy a domain on a whim, upload 3 comics and then 1 year later it has has to be undone because someone has grabbed the domain and we have to scrub every reference to the site to prevent being associated or sued by the new owner.

No, sorry, you can't change your URL without starting a new account. No, this isn't the right place to post. Feel free to start a new subject if you can't find one where people have the same problem as you. Welcome, anyway!

Hi,

It seems that although witchprickers.com is now registered to Comicgenesis, the domain still doesn't actually point to the comic. Is there something I need to do to fix that?

Have the domain forwarded to your comic instead of using our DNS servers. Read above for details.

If you have email forwarded by us to you, it's best you have it redirected now. I'm looking into putting in support for third party mail systems on our park domains to help with the transition.

I have my email forwarded by you to me. What do you mean that I should do differently?

Sorry for the lateness of this post; work has been a *mess* and draining me daily.

Risky, you need to sign up for a service to take over mail handling from us. One of these is MailRoute, which is recommended by Leo Laporte of the TWiT network. They do what we do, which is take care of your domains email, filter it for you, and send it to whatever email account you want (like Gmail).

I think I'd prefer to use google apps, for one thing it's free. Regardless of the service, won't I need access to the dns records?

I am no longer the owner of dimbulbcomics.com (oops). how can I get it so that the comicgenesis address goes to the comic as opposed to some scavenger's "blog"?

The Cricket and I are plotting a return to comicking and we'd like our house back.

To 'undo' a domain, we need to know the original comic username to look it up.

Your domain registrar should have a DNS hosting facility. I know mine (GoDaddy) has one, but also check with Hover.

this is probably a stupid question, but I'll ask it anyway.

Is Domain Parking same as Domain Mapping? That is- I pay for the domain name mycomic.com and I cannot have it directed at mycomic.comicgenesis.com?

You can redirect your site to a CG site (this is usually done as a CNAME in DNS mapping.) But you need the site to actually 301/302 redirect to your site for it to actually work.

The reason we don't do the domain parking anymore is because people but a domain and then abandon it after a few months. The maintenance overhead of doing this is rather high. So if we request that you redirect the domain, then it doesn't matter later if you change your mind.

Sorry, I fell off the world again. The original user name, as I remember it, was almost certainly dimbulbcomics. But it's been a bit and the old memory ain't what it used to be (which wasn't much).
