eNom Hosted Custom Domains Suddenly Redirecting To A Parked Server

In possibly yet another episode of the mysteriously broken custom domains that were purchased through Blogger, we have today reports of custom domains which are mysteriously redirected to advertisements for real estate and apartment rentals.

When we look at the DNS addresses, we see parked domains.

mydomain.com. 1800 IN A 69.64.147.214
www.mydomain.com. 1800 IN A 69.64.147.214

69.64.147.214
69.64.144.0 - 69.64.159.255
eNom, Incorporated


In one case, the domain apparently expired yesterday, and the owner didn't get a renewal notice.
I thought they would charge me automatically for annual renewal ... so perhaps my domain name is in limbo because it didn't get renewed??

So, then, what is the smoothest way to put a blog on a custom domain?

You put a blog on a custom domain using The "Buy A Domain" wizard.

Regardless of what you may think from reading posts in Blogger Help, custom domains are not inherently unstable. On any given day, besides a dozen or so bloggers making problem reports, thousands of others are busy posting to their blogs. Those posting don't post in Blogger Help, of course.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
