New site barryk.org

January 02, 2016 — BarryK
For a very long time, I have been with Hostgator. My account has primary domain puppylinux.com, with addon domains bkhome.org, goosee.com, barryk.org.

I wanted to change the primary domain name, as I plan to give away puppylinux.com (and puppylinux.org), probably to Mick Amadio (01micko).

However, it is rather complicated to do, and I need to redesign my site layout drastically. So, I decided to start a new account with Hostgator.
This time, the primary domain is barryk.org

I created a .htaccess file to redirect bkhome.org to barryk.org, as the latter is now my preferred domain name.

puppylinux.com is still pointing to the old Hostgator site.

goosee.com seems to be in limbo right now. puppylinux.com, puppylinux.org and goosee.com are registered with domain registrar netregistry.com.au, and I have moved, or rather attempted to move, goosee.com to another registrar (omnis.com).

Had a lot of trouble with Netregistry, the EPP code, which is the authorisation code required to perform the transfer, turned out to be wrong, and they gave me another one.
Despite my domain being unlocked, they required me to submit an online application, which they took days to respond to, and then only when I phoned them.

Anyway, when I had the supposedly correct EPP code, the transfer to Omnis took place, with advice that it could take up to 5 days.

puppylinux.com is now redirected to:

http://barryk.org/puppylinux

This site is now archived, frozen.

I have just sent an email to Mick Amadio, with login details to Netregistry. So, Mick can, if he wants, setup a new site for puppylinux.com and puppylinux.org

The site puppylinux.org points to is administrated by raffy (Puppy Forum name), so perhaps that one can be left alone.

Anyone who wants to have input to setting up a new site for puppylinux.com, get in contact with Mick (01micko on the forum).

Updated and corrected a few things, plus have added a link to http://puppylinuxnews.org/

Sometimes, people have complained that they cannot find information about the latest "official" releases of Puppy, such as the announcement and download links.
They are announced on Distrowatch and my blog, but Forum member raffy maintains the above news site, with details of Puppy releases.

Up until now, a new "official" release has been announced on my blog, then Distrowatch picks it up from there.
However, as I go more into the background, my blog will no longer be the place to announce new pups, instead one of the other sites, such as raffy's news site, will serve that purpose.
