I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Godaddy as they probably could give you help..
I've seen this happen to many companies, getting bought out and changed for the wourse. I suggest move to the big compaines like godaddy, doteasy, whoever, that are not going to add ads and don't reply to support questions...
Hosting is cheap at Godaddy.com always better to have an account then thoes annoying popups'..
Huh? I know I posted here also, but it's gone..
Then again, after reading -RJ-'s thread about what happened, my post wasn't.
Just an update on this whole mess. I managed to get hold of the parent company CEO's email address and explained my situation. An hour later one of his executives wrote to apologize for doing this and that the popup ads were removed. He also expressed their wishes to retain my business, but said they couldn't release my father's HostGator on account the 60 day no transfer policy is an ICANN regulation and not their own..
In any case, I intend to transfer all my domains away from their comapany including my father's on the 61st day. They should of thought about it before pulling this stunt on me.
Thanks to everyone who offered their help in this thread, including those that have vanished..
Glad to hear it's finally resolved. But they should've thought of that in the first.
And don't forget to mark the 61st day on your calendar...
You can always use their party DNS to do the forwarding. I'd recommend checking out ZoneEdit.com. You can do 5 domains free there, and more for pretty reasonable prices. Probably more reliable than that of your registrar as well..
I assume no pun was intended in saying your in a "bind" regarding your DNS?..
Yes this is a simple problem to solve, just change the DNS server on your control panel. I recommend eNom.com's DNS hosting service. Just $2/year...
