My Page Is Down! Why????

  1. I can't get to my page but to every other internet site, what's up???

    The blog I need help with is ehssafetynews.com.

  2. If http://ehssafetynews.com/ is being domain mapped to from a free hosted WordPress.com blog then what is the underlying .wordpress..com blog URL please?

  3. ehssafetynews.wordpress.com

    I bought the upgrade from WordPress and it was working earlier today, now nothing.

  4. Domain mapping is not instantaneous. It can take from 24 - 72 hours for a domain name chnage to propagate throughout the internet. We have no control over how long it will take for your ISP to flush their DNS cache. Patience is required.

  5. So even though Ive had the upgrade for over a year and renewed it, this is going to happen??

    I'm confused, sorry.

    Jack

  6. Did you allow the domain to expire? if you did not renew it previous to expiration then yes the whole process must be started again. If you enable auto-renew then the domain name is renewed prior to expiration and there is no interruption.

  7. Yes, I did, but it was working fine up until this morning. I renewed it over 2 weeks ago.

  8. Thanks for responding. I'm sorry this is happening and I tagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  9. Where do I go for that??

  10. I did via email if that's what you meant. Thanks!

  11. Thank you for your help. It's now working again! :)

  12. Alleluia! That's great news. :)

  13. Spoke too soon, it' down again. I'll await answer via email!

  14. I left the tag for Staff up so they will be following up on this thread.

  15. Still not working and have heard from nobody!

  16. Still not working and have heard from nobody! Getting upset here!!!!

  17. The domain ehssafetynews.com expired on November 28, 2012 and is currently in redemption. This means that the domain is deactivated, but has not yet been fully released. During this time, you can still renew this domain, but the process is more complicated than a regular renewal.

    If you'd like to renew your ownership of this domain, you have several options:

    1) We can renew the domain for you through our registrar. This costs $98, which includes $18 for the domain and an additional cost of $80 for a late renewal. We have no control over this additional cost, as it is levied on us by our domain registrar.

    Since you already paid $13 to renew just the domain-mapping portion, your cost will be $85, which is $98-13.

    2) Try to register the domain through a domain back-ordering service, such as Pool (Registering starts at $60 with Pool) http://pool.com/

    3) Wait until the domain is out of redemption and becomes available for registration again. Then, you can register it again for the regular price of $18. This would run the risk of the domain being registered by someone else before you, or the domain not being released for registration at all. The exact redemption period and the release of the domain are at the discretion of our domain registrar and we can't control it.

    If you want to have the best chance of getting your domain back, your best bet would be the first option. If you choose this option, please reply here letting us know. We will then send you a direct request for payment and will contact our registrar on your behalf, asking to restore the domain.

    Please note that time is of the essence here. Because your domain is very close to being cancelled, it may no longer be possible to recover it. If you pay for renewal and we are unable to recover the domain, you will be fully refunded.

    If you don't wish to proceed with attempting to redeem your domain, I will refund the $13 you paid for your domain-mapping renewal.

  18. If I decide to get my money back and it reverts back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com, will all of my postings be remapped to the ehssafetynews.wordpress.com domain or will they be permanently inaccessible because of the ehssafetynews.com mapping?

  19. If you cancel the domain mapping then your site will go back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com - no content will be lost - your visitors will need to use that URL to find you not the old mapped custom domain name and search engines will take a while to re-index your site back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com

  20. Reversion that means every link to the domain wherever it appears in search engines and on the internet will be broken. It will takes about 3 - 4 months for Google, Bing and other search engines to re-index the content under the .wordpress.com URLs to which the content reverts. Throughout that time anyone clicking the domain URLs will experience a 404 (page not found). http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/01/30/omg-my-domain-name-expired/

  21. So, in essence, if I pay the 85 dollars there still is no guarantee that the site will be back up and online under ehssafetynews.com today?

  22. Also if reverted back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com all all of my 1400+ posts on my blog go back to the ehssafetynews.wordpress.com address even if I posted then under the ehssafetynews.com address.

    In short will all of my posts be reverted back to the original ehasafetynews.wordpress.com address?

  23. In short will all of my posts be reverted back to the original ehasafetynews.wordpress.com address?

    Yes. See what I posted above.

  24. It takes 24 to 72 hours for change to reach the far corners of the internet for new domain mapping - changes usually start after a few hours but things will be a bit fluid while the internet updates -

    If I were you I would renew the domain name - that keeps all the old bookmarks working that your visitors had will work again

  25. Yes. Domain mapping is not the same as hosting. With domain mapping you are still hosted on wordpress.com so in fact all of your posts were technically posted to wp.com. Mapping is like a street sign on the internet directing browsers to your site sort like saying: "Hey! ehasafetynews is over that way!

    Your readers will have to use the ehasafetynews.wordpress link if you don't have the domain mapping. But your posts and all are still there.

  26. I don't have 85 dollars to spare, I was doing this to brand myself in my job search and not to make money..

    If it takes a few weeks for the internet to find all of my posts and re-index them under the ehssafetynews.wordpress.com address, then I'll have to wait and readers will have to search the site.

    Please revert it back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com and if you could use the 13 dollars I paid and credit it towards my upcoming video upload upgrade, I'd appreciate that.

    If you can do it.

  27. I've removed the non-functioning domain-mapping upgrade and reset your primary domain to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com.

    I've put $13 in credits on your account toward your next purchase.

    Just me know if you need anything else.

  28. Thanks Kathryn for all of your help as well as the others. It's working under the old name. I guess I have to wait and will lose readers until all of my posts get renamed and then remapped!

    Thank you! :)

    Jack

  29. One last question.........I see the site has a secure https address Will it remain that way? Like this: https://ehssafetynews.wordpress.com/

    I need to correct all of my links and email signatures if so!

    If you could let me know that would be great!

  30. Hi there - your address will work either on a secure connection (https) or non-secure connection (http). I suggest you leave your address as http://ehssafetynews.wordpress.com/ when providing it to folks since a non-secure connection is faster.
