Switching registrars

April 17, 2011

I’ve been using my host as a registrar and while it’s run pretty smooth I’ve found their domain support a bit subpar. I’m taking this opportunity to switch to NameCheap and that means that nameservers will have to be changed over. There may be some downtime in a couple of days as I need to change the host records as soon as the transfer goes through. Hopefully I’m at the computer when that happens.

Edit: Forget couple of days, transfer was done today. No downtime. Impressed with NameCheap thus far.

Undocumented feature (until now)

I’ve setup a short url that will make running queries much easier. Here’s how it works:

Additionally, if you feel like typing a ? instead of a / queries can be passed through a traditional querystring like http://steamid.me?example. The main website will also accept querystrings and it will not work without a ? since that’s too much of a pain to setup.

In all cases the query will be passed on and the lookup will proceed automatically. Just try it out!
