Expired and deleted domains

Internet

I just found this page of dropped domains from the 14th of July 2006. Low and behold:

rubbermaid-supplier.com
ruben-gil.com
rubenerd.com
rubiconmercantile.com
rucksackwanderers.com
ruddockphotography.com

In 2006, I moved to another webhost. The previous mob wanted several hundred dollars to transfer ownership of the domain to me. I wrote about this rort back in January. It took a few years, but I eventually got it back.

Lesson learned, always register your domain with a third party, such as Hover!

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.

You can leave me a comment by contacting me, and I might publish your thoughts. Please read the FAQs first though.

If you found this post helpful or entertaining, you can shout me a coffee or buy some silly merch. Thanks!
