Quick question: How can I register a free Godaddy domain name? Many thanks for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... Is the HostGator registrar down for anyone else?.

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Godaddy as they probably can help you..

I was told that India got hit with a nasty storm last week resulting in net outages. Maybe his area is affected...

Comment #2

Yep pratiknaik is a nice guy and very helpful - worst case senario (lets hope not though!) it's a Directi reseller account so you, your domains and account should be ok (I think, can anybody confirm that?)..

Comment #3

Hope so - I got some golden domains with him!.


Comment #4

I was wondering the same, have a few names I'd like to get to with him...

Comment #5

I got around 10 names with him. One is pending sale at sedo....

I trust he will get the GoDaddy site back up soon...

Comment #6

The domains/accounts will be fine as they are with directi and hosted with directi, I think the problem is his domain/hosting as microdude said nemohosting is down and perhaps he is using that service for the HostGator redirect. Who knows, but if we can figure out the url from directi we will be able to access our accounts..

My 2 cents anyways....

Well I was forced to start my own registration reseller - VERY similiar pricing, great service...but up and working!.

Fee free to give it a try guys, info is in my signature and I could use a little word of mouth!..

Comment #8

Also if you contact directi They will help you with the problem as is a directi reseller....

Nice, thanks for the info - I was trying to find out what the URL to the myorderbox page was but couldn't find it.

Still doesn't work because when you try to login you get a page that redirects to which isn't available at this time..

I have emailed the owner and hopefully he can get that hosting setup soon..
