Google Domains Provides Personal Support

One of the more promising features of Google Domains - besides the ability to access the Google Domains dashboard using a normal Google account - may be a recently discovered option.
I could not make my domain work, so I contacted Google Domains Support. They provided a simple adjustment, that actually worked!
Google Domains Support appears to be available, to anyone who purchases a domain, using Google Domains.

Google Domains Support is available, starting from a dashboard link.

Just login to Google Domains. At the bottom of the dashboard, you will see "Help".

Clicking on "Help", then "Support options", you have several options.

  • Help articles
  • Email us
  • Chat with us
  • Call us

And, we see some very promising advice.

The Google Domains Support Team is available every day:
  • For 24 hours by chat, email, and phone.

Click on "Help" at the bottom of the dashboard.



Click on "Support options".



"Thank you for using Google Domains!"

Initially, the most extensive advice, that has been described in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, was to

Change "ghs.google.com" to "ghs.googlehosted.com".

That simple suggestion, however, has worked for 2 blog owners that I know of.

Most recently, they have been providing immediate resolution for new domains that would go offline, sometime after being properly setup - because of an ICANN required domain lock.

We'll keep an eye on this new option, for the disappointed domain owner. And we'll continue to suggest that non USA residents wait patiently, for their chance.

Note that the Google Domains dashboard appears to be JavaScript based - so the blog owner will need cookies and scripts enabled, for "domains.google.com" - at a minimum.

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.
