If you guys will recall, I mentioned a ways back that Rifles Ready! might be moving from its current free (but restrictive!) WordPress host to a custom domain name — http://www.riflesready.com. This isn’t actually any kind of working site, which you’ll see if you go there. Instead, it’s a placeholder page being used by a cybersquatter to attract potential buyers. This squatter had leased the domain name for a year, but this lease was set to expire on July 29, some ten days ago. Well, I contacted the owner, because that lease magically renewed itself for another year almost instantly after the expiration time. The owner, one “John Stevens” (fake cybersquatter name if ever I heard one), informed me via email that he would charge $52.50 monthly for the lease of riflesready.com! You can imagine how much this guy would want if I was to instead buy the entire domain name from him.
Site Update: Domain move delayed by cybersquatter
So, unless you guys are feeling extremely generous and want to fork over large sums to me over Paypal, it appears as if our domain move will have to wait. However, you can feel free to comment here and suggest alternate domain names, like “riflesreadyrocks.com” or “Corkscrew’s the best.com” or some such.
