Some GoDaddy Hosted Custom Domains Are Showing Connectivity Errors

This weekend, a few owners of blogs published to custom domains are reporting problems viewing their blogs.

We are seeing various reports, such as unhappily reporting
CANNOT VIEW MY BLOG!
If we view the blog ourselves - or maybe if the blog owner uses one or more proxy servers to view the blog, the blog will be seen with no problem. Apparently the blog is actually online, regardless of the original observation.
Now what?

In many cases, the blog in question uses GoDaddy hosted DNS, and a specific set of GoDaddy servers, to provide domain addresses to the blog readers.

If we use a WhoIs Log extract, we can see the defining factor in this problem.
artprojectsforkids.org@ns25.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
artprojectsforkids.org@ns26.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


www.artprojectsforkids.org@ns25.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
www.artprojectsforkids.org@ns26.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Right now, GoDaddy name servers "ns25" and "ns26" are currently not responding, to domain address queries.

The domain itself is live. We can verify online status, and see that some readers in various portions of the Internet are able to access it.

We're still researching the support options, for this problem. I've identified a link to GoDaddy Live Support, which you may try if you are affected by this problem.

Use this Live BHF Search, to identify individual reports of the problems, and to follow the diagnostic process.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
