Thank you ladies and gents for your patience as we work this out.
We had our domain renewal settings at auto renew, we have not had a problem since we became The Patriot Woodworker’s a couple years ago.
We spoke with our domain registration folks about it last night and they claimed that there are folks out there with software that targets particular domains they would like to have, and when the time for renewal comes up the software is constantly hitting that domain, and in a split second it purchases the domain from the hosting service.
Our auto renewal somehow was toggled to off. We have had it set to “ON” since we became The Patriot Woodworker. Since we never visit the DNS controls of our domain, it’s hard to imagine how the auto button was switched to off, we are confounded on this one.
We are trying now to contact the new owner of our domain, we do have her contact information. We are working a way to get our domain back. But we will most likely stay .org now. Adapt, improvise, and overcome!
After all, we are The Patriot Woodworkers!! :)
Proud supporters of the men and women who serve in our armed forces in the US and Canada. Performing outreach and philanthropic deeds for disabled veterans.
Thanks for the post Lew, and we apologize for any inconvenience. And a big thank you to Martin in advance if this post is allowed to stay live.
