Kate Middleton, NFL Replacement Refs, SNL “Gangnam Style” vs “Call Me Maybe” on trenD

This is where Domain Names meet trends…

And oh man has it been ugly on the football field. The play has been decent, but it’s the refereeing that is causing much consternation. With the regular refs striking the new replacement refs (who should be much admired for their death-defying efforts) are struggling with the rules. We’re surprised nobody has been killed. Meanwhile, it’s pretty in France, where England’s naked princess has been pasted across the tabloids. And now what…sex scenes? That’s what they say, but a royal lawsuit has things tied up. Whatever…you go you young, wealthy royals. You know it’s gotta get old acting prim and proper all the time. Just ask Harry.

And finally, Saturday Night Live is back, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane does a fine job hosting…along with a new President Obama.

Allison Pill, Kate Middleton, Britney Spears, iphone 5 on trenD

Domains and Trends in one! In this episode…

It’s something that really should be a major part of this year’s elections: Why is it so awful to see a naked breast? Princess Kate Middleton shed her royal garb and a French tabloid posted the pics. Now the palace is ticked and all the world in a fury. Why? It’s the Puritans isn’t it? Those skin-covering sin police who dressed beautiful natives in Big Dog t-shirts. Dang it. It’s wrong. And then there’s the iPhone 5. People say they are disappointed, but analysts say there should still be about 6,000,000 pre-orders.

Finally, the Innocence of Muslims is a really bad video that no one should get excited about.

Rated PG, for reals.

How to transfer domains without disruption to your email or websites

This article was updated as of Sept. 25, 2015.

If you’ve decided to transfer your domain name to Name.com, you may have some questions: How do you do it? How long does it take? And what will happen to your website and email in the meantime?

The answer to all of these questions depends on the type of name servers you have. So if you have host name servers or your own custom ones, then do a little happy dance because you’re in the clear! Your namer servers will follow the transfer with no downtime or extra work on your part.

But if you’re using registrar DNS services, you’ll have to get a little more involved to successfully transfer your domain. But don’t worry—we’ll walk you through the process.

This is from Patrick “P-mo” Moroney who thinks about these things day and night, even when his wife is talking to him. So there’s a good chance he sacrificed the health of his young marriage just to come up with how you can transfer your domain names smoothly and without any interruption to your email or websites.

Transferring a domain that uses registrar DNS services

1. Purchase a transfer. And make sure to do the next 4 steps BEFORE clicking the link on the approval email that we will send to you, because you are unable to modify the name servers once we fully submit the transfer to the registry.

2. On the transfers page, click on the arrow next to the edit button and select “Edit DNS.”

3. Input your DNS settings to match what you have at your old drab registrar.

4. At this point you should be able to resolve DNS both at your old name servers and at Name.com’s name servers.

5. But you are not done yet. Go back to your old registrar and set the name servers to the following: ns1.name.comns2.name.comns3.name.comns4.name.com.

6. Now go back to that transfer approval email and click the link, allowing us to approve the transfer.

7. If your registrar allows you to acknowledge the transfer then you should wait 24 hours after you complete step 5 before you do so. Otherwise the old registrar could stop resolving your domains if anyone else has their name servers cached.

8. If they don’t allow you to acknowledge the transfer, we will have to wait the whole 5 day transfer period before the domains are with Name.com.

9. You’re done! Yey!

Here, P-Mo ponders domain transfers. While some think he’s simply doing some nervous chewing on his earbud, he’s actually powering the internet with his wind.

Celebrity Death Hoax, Chris Kluwe and All Things Cool and trenD!

Not going to lie to you. This one is long. But there’s so much to talk about. If you make it through the whole thing we’ll buy you a soda. First off we have people fake dying everywhere. It seems to be following successful black actors. Urkel has been put on fake death watch.

Even bigger news is that football is back. I know the world wonders why we watch American football instead of Most-everybody-in-the-world football, but there’s just something so spectacular about it. Anything can happen, and Kris Kluwe and Brandon Weedon–especially Brandon Weedon–prove that. Also, we mourn the passing of Denzel Washington.

Rated G for Giggles.
