The Back Story
On November 9th we performed an upgrade and ran into major problems getting it completed with our provider Frontiernet. So we said the hell with it and moved all of our domains to GoDaddy for hosting. I’d recommend any business account that self hosts their own web, mail, DNS, and other servers to do the same. Frontier does not have any dedicated technical support staff who understand networking or why sub-delegation of reassigned IP addresses is critical. Without it, domain names like ShadesLanding.com lack an address to be found at. After three days and over 12 hours on the phone with Frontier, we said ENOUGH! So we moved our domains to our registrar and now host them through GoDaddy. A happy ending to a week long trauma.
Thanks for your patience during that time and we do apologize for the downtime and any inconvenience it caused you.
