Don’t Get Caught Off Guard By the 60-Day Domain Name Transfer Lock – Don’t Change Your Who-Is Contact Info Less Than 60-Days Before You Intend to Transfer Out of Your Domain Registrar!

I learned a valuable lesson today that's on the subject of domains. I'm passing this info on so that no one else in here has to learn the hard way:

DON'T EVER MESS WITH YOUR DOMAIN WHO-IS CONTACT INFO IF YOU PLAN ON TRANSFERRING THE DOMAIN OUT WITHIN 60 DAYS !

[If you do then you are risking a likely 60-Day Domain Transfer Lock!]

Here are some articles related to this issue:

- GO DADDY POSTS WORKAROUND FOR 60-DAY LOCK: http://www.bigbeagle.com/domain-registrar/

- Registrars continue to violate the ICANN transfer policy: https://blog.tigertech.net/posts/transfer-policy-violations/

_______________________________________________

Background: (though it's actually an ICANN rule taken to extremes to the convenient advantage of GoDaddy)

NEW ISSUES WITH GODADDY - OMG!

One of my main .COM domains is up for renewal and expires on 11/06/2014. I went to renew this domain ON GoDaddy and they wanted $15+ (idiotic) for the renewal. I called them one last time to see if they might want to make a gesture to keep me on as a customer by reducing the renewal price one-time to $10 or lower (I've seen domain transfer prices as low as $5.99 today and I would be an idiot to pay $15+ for the exact same thing.) - no go. They wouldn't budge one-penny.

Anyways, now resolved to transfer my domain out from GoDaddy I went in to disable the privacy protection (as usual) so that there isn't any interference in my receiving the transfer related emails and that left me with incomplete/erroneous contact records in my who-is.

I went in and corrected the who-is and now I'm getting this cute little message "Transfer locked until 12/21/2014: Contact information change" This is an outright bad intent attempt by GoDaddy to try to force me to pay their $15+ renewal (WTF!)

The technical support person was useless but after spending half-an-hour on the phone of him saying that the transfer lock couldn't be removed then I demanded to speak with a supervisor. I was then told to send an email to a specific 'review' email address at GoDaddy and wait for them to verify my identity (did that - now waiting for a response) ARGH!

Anyways, these BS inflated prices and underhanded tactics by GoDaddy have lost me as a customer. Anyone else go through this crap?

_______________________________________________

BOTTOM LINE:

It's starting to look like I'll have to pay the $15+ GoDaddy renewal because I got caught off guard by GoDaddy's decision to enforce the ICANN rule more strictly and rigid than most other registrars out there

[Off Topic But Extremely Important!] Get a Flu Shot This Year for Sure No Excuses (Read On For Why)

It’s much more important this year than ever before in the recent past that as many people as is possible get a flu shot!

I come from a medical family and I grew up around and with the the terminology, thought processes, and logic  involved in the medical professions (my dad was a pharmacist and my mother was a Registered Nurse up until she retired)  I’m definitely NOT a doctor (I’m an IT professional) but medical topics have always peaked my interest and I’ve definitely been paying attention recently with this global Ebola outbreak lurking at our (US) doorstep.

I’ve gathered that the onset of Ebola presents itself with many of the symptoms resembling the common flu.  I’m increasingly hearing on the major news networks that a growing number of people are showing up in hospital emergency rooms with flu symptoms are being put though much more scrutiny sometimes to the point of isolative quarantine until the cause of their symptoms can be diagnosed and/or Ebola can be completely ruled out.

If God forbid this global Ebola pandemic enters the US more forcefully (which it is likely to do) the there will be an increasing amount of medical resources and staff devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of these cases.

By not receiving the flu immunization then you are exposing your family, friends, co-workers and all those people you come into contact with on a regular basis at a greater risk of becoming sick.  Further, you are placing yourself at an ever increasing risk of  you actually getting the flu and in a number of flu cases (depending upon the severity)  you may be risking hospitalization where there will likely be a certain period of uncertainty as to whether or not you are only suffering from a common case of the flu, or possibly something much more serious – Ebola !  How is the hospital staff to know the difference in you during those crucial first hours, days, or weeks?

Increasingly the solution to the above dilemma is strict quarantine in complete isolation while being placed under observation – do you REALY want to risk such unnecessary lifestyle disruptive treatment  along with being responsible for the increased workload and reduction of medical resources available for those who may truly need it?

This all is entirely preventable and can be totally avoided  by your simple decision to be immunized against influenza now.  I received my flu shot yesterday.

Worst case scenario if you DO get a flu shot – you simply are much less  likely to get the flu this year (wink)

PayPal Scores a Hit with Me in the Customer Service Department (Shocked the Heck Out of Me - Lol) WTG PayPal !

PayPal Actually Treated Me Right This Time !

(read the entire story for the kind and happy ending) 
A few minutes ago I remembered that one of my dozen or so domain names was up for renewal in a few days (one of my more valuable and liked domains)  I also had noted that I received a Network Solutions email a few days ago offering to renew that domain name at $10 even with the coupon code contained in the email.

I got ready to renew the domain only when I checked my PayPal account then all I had was $9.97 in the account (I use the a PayPal debit MasterCard to pay for such things.)  Yes, sure I have plenty of cash (physical cash) but my problem was that it wasn't in my PayPal account (and there's no quick way to refill a PayPal account with cash without going through an ordeal normally)

I decided to use one of my other debit cards (less than a buck on that one) along with the handy PayPal donation widget (usually used by charity organizations on their web sites) to in-effect donate what I needed to myself in my PayPal account (a few cents) from that other debit card.  So, I used the donation widget placed in a local HTML file  (located on my own PC) viewed in a browser window to donate 16 cents (I thought more than enough to cover the three cents I was short)

The transaction went just fine only when I checked my PayPal balance I was shocked to find out that my balance had not changed (it was STILL $9.97 (?))  In looking at the details of my donation transaction (below) I discovered that for my sixteen-cent donation I was charged a $0.16 (100%) transaction fee ! ~ (lol)

PayPal charged me a 100% transaction fee to receive a donation !?!
100% Transaction Fee on Receipt of 'Donation' (?)

More puzzled and disappointed with PayPal I gave their customer service line a call to ask why the heck they would charge me a 100% transaction fee on receiving my donation.  The very polite and professional happy sounding PayPal customer service girl (after I explained my story) simply asked me how much I was short in my PayPal account for completing my domain renewal transaction and I told her only the three cents.

After a minute on hold while she spoke with her supervisor then she told me that she was seeing that I've been a loyal 14+ year customer of PayPal and that they don't want to 'do me like that' and to make it up to me that she had added a buck ($1.00) to my PayPal balance as a gesture of good will from PayPal to me (smile)


Thank you PayPal for turning from the seemingly mindless evil draconian giant (the way many of my friends and I had perceived them for some time now due to all of the past horror stories them and I had been subjected to or heard about over the years) into a thoughtful and kind friendly partner to me.
PayPal Customer Service Actually Hit the Ball Out of the Park for Me Tonight !

Gaping Default Security Hole in Firefox Allowing the Viewing of ALL Your Saved Passwords in Plain Clear Text!

WARNING GAPING SECURITY HOLE IN FIREFOX !!!

If you use Firefox are you aware that ANYONE in-the-know that you give access to your computer (iffy friends, bad roommates, sketchy relatives, etc) can EASILY look up and see ALL YOUR SAVED PASSWORDS IN PLAIN CLEAR TEXT !!!

I was completely unaware of this until about a month ago and was TOTALLY SHOCKED ! Even though I'm a technology buff and professional PC / network technician by former trade (I thought I knew everything !)

Want to see?

Ok, click on Tools > Options then go to the Security tab. Find the Saved Passwords button and click on it. Then simply click on Show Passwords and !?! WTF !?! Really !!??!!

I guess that's why they have the "Use a master password" option (and you'd better change ALL your shown passwords and set a master password if you've EVER given anyone shady a chance to use your PC)

Google Chrome also has this (what I would call) default gaping security FLAW! http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/lay-off-chrome-firefox-has-the-same-password-security-flaw/#!JlK2z

Please spread the word by sharing this post with your friends if you are so inclined.

PollBuzzer Pays Weekly PayPal a Buck for Each Simple Emailed Poll Question !

Get Paid to Answer Emailed Survey Questions !

Start making money - It's totally FREE!  Get simple questions sent to your email and receive PayPal payments weekly.  Yes, don't just dismiss this post after reading the headline title.  PollBuzzer is truly a painless way to make an occasional buck or two.


The only downside I've found is that you can't do anything to influence when or how many times you'll receive the coveted emailed dollar paying no-brainer questions.  The questions get sent to your email address and they'll send you PayPal payments weekly.  I've personally already been paid several times by PollBuzzer.


The real power of this is in their referral system which gives you a buck for each referral after they've answered four (4) emailed questions.   Again, the only problem is you can't influence how long it takes for them to actually receive four questions - sometimes it takes days, other times it may take weeks)  It's all good though because this place will send you money automatically within a week any time you've earned at least a buck - sometimes when you least expect it (so this turns out to be a bonus couple of surprise bucks you weren't even aware you earned)






PollBuzzer Pays $1 for Each Simple Emailed Question Answered !

The way they explain it is:  "Earn an additional $1 for each new PollBuzzer Panelist that you refer! Just send the unique referral link below to your friends, family, colleagues, or whoever else you want to refer. Each time a new panelist joins PollBuzzer after coming to the site using your link, you'll be credited with the referral. Once that new panelist answers 4 questions, we'll know it was a successful referral, and $1 will be credited to your account."

They even have what they call a 'Client Affiliate Program" where:  "Know someone who uses customer opinions or market research to make decisions? Have a friend in marketing or working on a small business, who needs to know what their target consumers think? Refer that person to PollBuzzer and get paid if they send out a survey! Starting now, we're making you an affiliate of PollBuzzer, and we'll pay you 10% of whatever we earn in the first year after you make the referral (after we pay our panelists). So send the link below to all your friends and family, post it on Facebook and Twitter, and start earning today. The typical PollBuzzer survey would earn you about $15, and there's no limit to what you can earn if your contacts start sending out surveys, so start referring now! Thank you."  My affiliate referral link for this is:  http://askpollbuzzer.com/?r=TitJR2RCWnVHOUV4VkZpTzU0bUpiUT090 though I really don't see the point in this as the odds are pretty slim that I'd ever refer anyone that needed a question answered (?)

WEB of Trust - Untrustworthy, Vote of No Confidence

In my own humble opinion, and those of many other Get Paid To (GPT) site and CPA Affiliate Network admins, recent developments at Web of Trust (www.MyWOT.com) have proven the self-appointed web guardian untrustworthy.

Recently it was noticed that the formerly good to great reputation ratings for hundreds of legitimate ShiftCode GPT site and Performa affiliate networks were suddenly and deliberately plunged en-mass into the 'very poor' range by a single anonymous and faceless WOT 'platinum member' submitting bulk site reputation ratings using what is called the 'mass rating tool',

In addition to the shotgun in the dark site ratings approach taken by the WOT 'platinum member' calling him/herself c۞g, each targeted site's 'scorecard' page was further defaced with the identical (apparently also bulk blast posted) libelous comment citing almost every powerful negative word that could readily be attributable to the lowest of the low scam type web site.  Yes, a person is entitled to his own opinion but when

Important ! Make Your GPT Site Account Passwords Unique to Each Site !

A small but VERY IMPORTANT note about password hygiene in relation to your GPT site accounts:

In the past couple of days there has been a rash of GPT members logging in only to find that all of their cash in their GPT account had been cashed out instantly to a PayPal account (email address) that they don't recognize.

The days of using one or a small pool of identical passwords among multiple sites is definitely gone. It's extremely important that you change your password today (if you haven't changed it in a while) AND only use a new password that is unique to each individual site (different passwords for each site)

ShiftCode based GPT sites are secure in the simple fact that not even the GPT site admin can ever see your password (even if he / she would try.)

Other (random script author) GPT site scripts may allow a devious admin to view your login information (which he /she if so inclined may use to log in to other sites under your name and steal your money)
 
I CANT STRESS THIS TOO MUCH TODAY !

GO NOW AND CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS ON ALL YOUR GPT ACCOUNTS TO SOMETHING UNIQUE TO EACH AND EVERY SITE !

GPTTracker Discontinuing Service to GPT Sites

Important Note to All GPT Site Members:

It is our understanding that the GPTTracker (www.GPTTracker.com) service will be discontinuing service sometime in the very near future.

Just a reminder, it is STILL your own responsibility as a GPT site member to keep track of your offer completions history in any way that you prefer (crayon & toilet paper (lol), pencil & paper, spreadsheet, running log, whatever, etc.) in order to prevent improper offer duplication in the future.

We are sorry to see GPTTracker go and thank them for their years of excellent service to the get-paid-to (GPT) industry - this service will be missed by many.

FaceBook Group Taking Off as an Excellent Place to Find and Share GPT Site Information

Social networking has increasingly become a most efficient way to spread the word with your friends  about lucrative get paid to type sites online.  Once such group on facebook now boasts over 220 international members actively sharing information and swapping referrals in an ideal win-win situation that can't be ignored.

Earn Free Cash Online Simply & Legitimately is an open public facebook group that is free for anyone to join.  The group actively encourages members to share information about their favorite free online money earning sites while quoting their individual referral link to the sites.

Once your referral link is placed publicly with such exposure it's rumored not to be uncommon to receive several new active referred members added to your downline in no time flat.  Get paid to sites nowadays tend to pay referring members anywhere from a meager 5% to a whopping 50% (depending on the site) of your referral's earnings (with an average referral rate being about 15%)

The percentage you earn from your referrals doesn't even come out of their earnings (so theres no downside for the member you refer!) This has the potential to add up and snowball your passive profits quickly if you are an outgoing group poster.

To become a member of this popular and fast growing facebook group simply log in to your facebook account and surf on over to https://www.facebook.com/groups/freecashonline/ and click on the join link.  You'll be approved by the admin within minutes in most cases.  Once you are a member don't forget to invite your friends so they can share in the online money making and referring magic as well!  See you there.  Enjoy !

PointDollars - Best new GPT seen this year ! ($1 Minimum - Prompt (almost instant) PayPal)


PointDollars is topmost on my list of new and promising get paid to sites that I've seen emerge this year.  Steered by its level headed and friendly administrator Chris, PointDollars has constructed a sturdy ShiftCode based GPT chock full of over two-thousand field fresh offers (updated regularly) bolstered by three plus offer walls adding another couple of hundred additional offer opportunities.  The site also hosts regular back-to-back offer completion contests.

PointDollars, with its generous two referral levels (30/10), regular lucrative referral contests, and the relative newness of the site (low market saturation) combine to form a perfect storm for those of us referral champs.  This means that if you choose to promote PointDollars most of your viewing audience will most likely be new to the site.

Though the site does not yet offer "instant" PayPal payments, in actuality it comes very close.  There has never been a time where I have seen a withdrawal request go for more than a few minutes to an hour or so before fulfillment.

The site's current 300+ member database makes for a close knit friendly crowd with excitement and opportunity abound.

Paid The Fastest

PaidTheFastest.com

Over the years I have become thoroughly convinced that PaidTheFastest is simply the best get paid to site on the planet that's still surviving and persisting. There is always plenty of exciting things to do here. The site is ever growing, changing, and evolving (though at times it seems the changes are daunting but have confidence that with just a bit of time, exploration, and patience you'll find yourself a master at navigating the fully loaded custom coded ShiftCode script based GPT.)

At PTF all you need to earn is a measly one dollar ($1) to withdraw instantly to PayPal (among a myriad of other cash and prizes to choose from.) The administration is exceedingly friendly (99.9% of the time) though stern and strict in rare times when a member might find him/herself on the wrong end of an issue involving trust or fraud (don't test them, they've seen and heard it all.)

PTF serves an exceedingly large number of loyal site members most of which are more than happy to help newbies find their way via the always crowded and fast paced shoutbox (open online chat.) If you are new to the online get paid to (GPT) world I would highly suggest you stick to the offers and cash out areas of the site and then once you feel more emboldened then you may consider exploring other more complicated looking (optional) sections of the site.
