Docsmachine.com is still up for me, but www.the-whiteboard.com is kicking me over to Charter's default "that isn't a valid domain" search page.

You forget to renew the domain, Doc?

Yup, he's forgotten to renew it again, unfortunately dotster have changed their renewal system so that you now have to log in.

Last time you could just throw money at them and they would renew it regardless.

When I go to look it up, whois returns "Maximum Daily connection limit reached. Lookup refused."

Asking one of the name servers directly gives

>server NS2.MTAONLINE.NET
Default server: NS2.MTAONLINE.NET
Address: 216.152.176.2#53
> the-whiteboard.com
Server: NS2.MTAONLINE.NET
Address: 216.152.176.2#53

Name: the-whiteboard.com
Address: 216.137.202.211

So the domain is valid, and resolving where it should, something is broken a little higher in the DNS chain.

Hey Doc what does Dotser want to do say a 5 year registration??

You could have a special artwork sale to raise the funds if needed.


funny thing is i know that the hosting company i use will
1 take money for multiyear hooks
2 deals with the registration as part of the hosting.

I've had zero issue getting upwards of a ten-year registration before.
