.NAME Domain Names -- Availability temporarily suspended.

.NAME Domains Deactivated on our Storefront

The registry owner for the .NAME extension changed this week. Until we are sure how this will affect pricing and availability of the TLD, we have deactivated this domain on our storefront for NEW sales and transfers. All current customers will have full support for any .NAME domains in their accounts and renewals will be carried out without interruption.

This only affects the .NAME top level domain.  No other TLDs are affected.

Code Signing Certificate, Protect Your Code Today

  • Perfect for software publishers and content providers of ActiveX controls, dynamic link libraries (.dll files), .cab files, HTML content or any other software distributed over the Internet or via an extranet.

  • Time-stamping service provided, allowing distribution of signed code beyond certificate expiration

  • Protects your intellectual property by warding off impersonation and tampering.

In the Money Exchange arena where Paypal has been clearly dominant on the web there is a new major player in town.


Revolution Money Exchange, a new startup with money transfer functionality very similar Paypal is promoting their launch by giving $25 immediately to anyone who signs up. I'm not sure how long this will last. When I first hear about it the person that told me about it said the $25 sign up credit ended at the end of February 2008. I dragged my feet to long to get in on it and lost interest until I heard that it was now extended to the end of March. That's when I jumped in.


Why am I telling you about this. Because anyone I get to sign up right now I will get paid a $10 referral fee instantly when you sign up. When you sign up, you will get your $25, and you will get an additional referral fee of $10 for anybody you get to sign up. I don't know how long they will keep this promotion going so act fast.

Warning – There are secure and un-secure items on the page you requested. Do you want to continue?

You’ve seen it – now here’s how to fix it…

Does this happen on your Web site? Customers go through your shopping cart and as they’re ready to check out, they’re sent to a page to make their PayPal payment. Suddenly they see "Warning – There are secure and un-secure items on the page you requested. Do you want to continue?"
 
In most cases, the only un-secure item is an image you’ve added to the page… but your customers don’t know that. Here’s how to avoid that message and keep customers from running scared:
 
When linking to a photo/image contained in your Online Photo Filer account, you now have the option to also grab a secure (SSL) link to that image. It’s the perfect solution when you need to host an image (such as a PayPal logo) somewhere in your checkout process. Do this and all the content will display as secure... and your customers will continue and complete the checkout process.
