RSS Subscribe Another Domain Name Scam doing the rounds
Posted on 07/06/15 10:18PM

We are aware of another Domain Name scam doing the rounds which appears to be affecting international domains like .COM. This scam takes the form of the scammer emailing domain owner, and saying that their domain name is due for renewal, and is at risk of expiring. In this case the organization contacting you is not us, the 'Lounge Network', but a company calling themselves 'Domain Services'.

The scam takes the form of them telling you that your domain is due to expire, and asking for your credit card so you can renew the domain through them. However as they are not the registrar of the domain, they will not be able to renew the domain, so they will essentially be taking you money. The amount they are charging is also almost double what we charge, and there is the risk that if you do follow their instructions, you could potentially lose your domain name if they take control of it. Therefore please delete any email that you receive. If you are not sure, please contact us via our support page. Please note that this scam seems to be affecting international domains. We ourselves have also received some of these scam emails for domains we own, and we have just deleted them.

RSS Subscribe Major changes to Google NZ search results on mobile platforms
Posted on 04/05/15 10:14PM

As of April 21st Google will begin to rank mobile search results, on the mobile-friendliness of your website. This means that if your website hasn’t been built to be mobile friendly, it may not rank well in mobile search results, and this could be a major problem for your business. This means all that money you may have spent on website design and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) may have been in vain if most of your visitors are mobile based, and your website ranks poorly in mobile searches.

RSS Subscribe Time is running out to register your shorter .nz domain.
Posted on 10/03/15 06:54PM

Time is running out to register your shorter .nz domain. If you're eligible to register or reserve the shorter version of your .nz name, you've only got until 1pm 30 March 2015 to register and pay for your domain. Most of our clients who wanted the shorter version of their NZ domain, have already registered it. If you don't register and pay for the shorter .NZ domain before 1pm 30 March 2015 , the shorter .NZ domain will be released into the public pool for anyone else to register it. If you haven't already registered your shorter .NZ domain, and you do still want it, please email us. You will also be able to register your shorter domain via our advanced Domain Manager control panel at http://www.controlpanel.co.nz .

To register the shorter version of your current nz domain in the Domain Manager control panel, you need to click the  'Domains' tab in the left menu to open the menu. Then click the 'Register PRR/Resolved/Reserved domains' link. Then follow the prompts.

If you need help with any of this, please email us , and we can put through the domain request manually for you.

If you want more information on the new shorter .NZ Domain names, please refer to our blog post last year at http://www.loungenetwork.co.nz/pre-register-a-shorter-nz-domain-name/
