|Dreams of Technology foiled by pokey companies|
More recently I've found that they don't like nameservers where the FQDN lookup doesn't match the reverse lookup. This is pretty much understandable, but what I don't understand is why it was working for a particular host I use until a month ago and is now no longer working.
I raised a support ticket with Uniforum and it took them a good couple of days to come back to me. I wonder how a company that charges R 50 for every single co.za domain offers such poor service and such an antiquated API (email forms? I mean really).
To put things in perspective. To register a domain in .com costs about R 67 (without shopping around). This is R 17 more than a co.za domain.
There are many benefits to using a .com domain:
- foreign customers will recognize .com better,
- it's easier to say on the radio,
- domains can be locked against transfers,
- you can register them automatically,
- you can register them for multiple years at a time, and
- you don't have to hassle with Uniforum.
