The Process: The exact drop time varies by registry - from 30 to 60 days. It can take up to 75 days for the domain to actually drop. Contact the registrar to find out what their hold time is. The domain will stay in pendingDelete for about 5 days. There is no set time for when a domain is dropped, though it does appear to start in the 11am-2pm PST (2pm - ...

Yes, fake accounts are bad for your site. They could significantly hurt your site's reputation. When they register, your site probably sends an email to a bad address or an address that belongs to someone that didn't register on your site. That makes you look like a possible spammer. They could use the accounts to degrade performance on your site (this is ...

Register Compass has details about the pending delete status. Their information concurs with what you have read. The deletion period lasts only 5 days. On the last day of this period, typically between 11am and 2pm Pacific Time that domain name will be completely dropped from the ICANN database. Once this happens anyone is free to register that domain ...

When an online account's password is compromised, the hackers will sometimes sign the victim up for accounts on a ton of other online services. They hope that their actual nefarious activities are lost in the flood of confirmation emails. Mailchimp says this on the subject: Sometimes, when an abuser attempts to takeover an account, they'll sign their ...

The bot is looking for a site that automatically publishes their comments, using a "Black-List" method. Most Webmasters use the "White-List" method and only approve comments they have personally read. If the bot was able to post for example 100 links and Google's bot were to see those links it would give their URL a PR boost, even if you remove the comment ...

You shouldn't avoid purchasing a domain just because other extension variations have already been purchased - if you like it and it's available, go for it. In regards to a bigger company who shares a domain name with a bigger extension - they may contact you to purchase it off you but it's all on your own terms - as long as you make it clear on your page ...

Domain has 30 days renewal from the date after it expired. Then redemption period activates for another 30 days. After the redemption period, you'll be able to register domain again.

This sounds like a great use-case for First Click Free - which would allow you to show the full content to Googlebot, while limiting the number of times a user can access content from there.

Without storing the passwords you can only evaluate the quality by counting the number of different types of character (upper case, numbers, special characters) when the user first sets or subsequently resets their password. You could enable the counting and store that information (you just need the number of characters and the number of each type of ...

I imagine that if economic embargoes/sanctions were to be enforced over the internet, it wouldn't be enforced at the website level. Think about how impractical it would be to require every webmaster out there to keep an updated list of embargoed countries and have to block all visitors from that country. And it's not like a North Korean internet user has a ...

I would not create fake accounts to make it look as if the site is populated as that can backfire on you in too many ways. Unless you are very skilled at creating content that looks like it is from different people you may find that your users will be able to spot the fake accounts. Always remember that humans are pattern-seeking mammals and if the ...

If it truly is a redirect of a new domain (and I say this because a lot of companies get this wrong) then there will only be the root domain indexed in search engines anyhow so when the new website goes live and the redirect removed, it won't take a search engine long to see that and then start indexing the new site on the new domain. There is minimal ...

It's best to contact the registrar about their specific holding time policy, as this might vary. However, it's also not a very reliable method to just wait for a domain registration to expire. You competition is not other individuals, but resellers who quickly grab these expiring domains and sell them at a huge price increase. Like kcdwayne has already said,...

There are certain CCTLDs that are offered directly to the customers by the Registrar. Registries like Verisign(for .COM and .NET) follow the Registry->Registrar model. A Registrar uses channels to register the domain names for the end clients. The Registry sells the domain names through its network of accredited Registrars(accredited by ICANN) Telecom ...

It's not if you decide to limit your users' login options to those domains. Many people will use services like yahoo.ca or yahoo.cn or AOL or their ISP or company domain as a primary mail service. You are disabling all of them from your website. Note that users who use their company or personal websites as primary emails are usually advanced users who will ...

Yes, you can use Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail or other login api's. This is good practice because the user doesn't want to register on many sites and remember the login details. It irritates the user. They prefer to use these service to login each time. This increases the programmers effort in retrieving and handling the data, but from the users point of view ...

The life cycle of a domain can be a bit complicated. It also differs depending on the domain extension, but here is a basic run down of a typical domain life cycle: January 1, 2016: You register the domain for 1 year. November 1, 2016: This is typically when registrars start sending out renewal notices (~60 days from expiration). January 1, 2017: Your ...

Looking with nslookup and then browsing those IPs found in the records I see that there are the old IPs that CloudFlare no longer handles, I think you didn't updated your A records. You should contact your DNS provider. You need to verify also that your public IP's are seen from outside, and then change the A records with the help of your DNS provider.

You can do something like this: <input type="text" name="username" autocomplete="username"> <input type="default" name="email" autocomplete="email"> <input type="password" name="password" autocomplete="new-password"> Firefox in the current version looks for the first password field. From there it looks for the first preceding field of ...

It is generally not possible without reordering your fields or without a hack. Your username field has to be right before your password field in Firefox. I had the same issue but last name instead of telephone. After hours of trying things this answer made it clear. Firefox (at least in the current version) looks for a password field. Then it takes the ...

Sounds like you are reinventing the wheel. There are plenty of scripts that will check password quality http://www.webresourcesdepot.com/10-password-strength-meter-scripts-for-a-better-registration-interface/

Generally resellers will have receive products and services cheaper than they are sold direct and they make margins this way, however this wouldn't seem the case unless they are just plain greedy. Go direct and order the domain nic.sm there is little difference in terms of usage since both will have control panels for setting up records. While asking on ...

I always check out this website before buying domain names - www.change-domain.com - My personal favourite is godaddy because they're the simplest and usually the cheapest for new domain registrations.

If you are going to do that, DO NOT store a rating or additional information about the contents of passwords directly mapped in some way to each password. If your database was hacked, this would be the equivalent of saying "These passwords are the easy ones to crack, and here's some information about them to get you started." Instead, you could store ...

The reason TLD's were created is to differentiate. .COM is (mistakenly) assumed to be an American TLD, whereas most people use it to mean globally. .ORG or non-profit making organisations. .NET ISP's, but they all get muddled and 'misused'. etc. Don't worry about it. As Long as you're not parodying, or slagging off the owner of the .COM domain, or ...
