    Hello Adam,
    I think your show is terrific. I have learned so much about computing by listening to your over the years and visiting your forums intermittently. Thank you for the work that you do.
    Both you and Rob at TII have been promoting Hover as a domain host recently. I moved some of my domain names to their enterprise and was extremely satisfied with the process. After the first experience I tried to move several other domain names but was thwarted by my host, Go Daddy. As it turns out I had recently changed one of the settings having to do with privacy and Go Daddy stated that there is a waiting period of 60 days before one can make a transfer after any settings are change on a domain. I was quite surprised about this restriction. This is all to say that you may want to warn the audience about the issue before they try to transfer to Hover. I would not want anyone to have the same experience as I did with Go Daddy.

    Here is the email Go Daddy sent to me:

    Dear Corrie Anderson,

    The transfer of AIMS4U.MOBI from, Inc. to another registrar could not be completed for the following reason(s):

    Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer Contact. (e.g. – email, fax, paper document or other processes by which the Transfer Contact has expressly and voluntarily objected through opt-in means).

    The express written objection may be the result of a pending or recently completed Change of Registered Name Holder. This is an opt-in process during which the new Registered Name Holder agrees not to transfer for 60-days. This domain will be transferrable on 2/8/2012.

    If you believe that this domain name does not fit the situation described above, go to for assistance.

    Go Daddy Domain Services


    Since you are recommending transferring Domain names to Hover, what are you telling folks to do about hosting their iWeb sites? Apple is eliminating MobileMe and iDisk this year so I suspect iWeb will be lost. I am afraid that my web site will be lost in oblivion. I haven’t heard that Apple is planning an alternative hosting process. Are we to move the web sites to iCloud? Your thoughts and comments would be welcome.
