7. I hate Domain Name Servers



Don't you just love how Domain Name Servers take 24 to 48 hours to update. I want to point my blog to danielownmcguire.com but I have to wait for the DNS to update. Same thing with SkinnyPrices.com. I have been using a trial version of Volusion.com after trying out wordpress, shopify, weebly, etc. I decided to go with Volusion but to activate my account and transfer my demo account to the real one takes 2-3 days. Pretty crappy system and once again I'm doing the waiting game. So here I am waiting for my domains to update and my account to activate. Waiting is not something I do well. I just want to get this stuff done!

Well... today everything finally registered, updated, and configured. So it has been a great Friday. I am getting ready to head home after I finally got my sub-domains and domain forwarding all figured out. As of right now danielowenmcguire.com with and without the www, at the beginning, points to my blog. SkinnyPrices is also taken care of and is finally pulling up correctly. I also bought the .net, .org, .co, and some other spellings and have them all pointing to SkinnyPrices.com

So my advice to everyone trying to learn this stuff. Read up on it first really well. What I messed up is I would make changes to my DNS and then I would have to wait 24 hrs to see if it worked. It gets very frustrating to have to wait so long and then realize it wasn't done correctly. (Which I did 3 days in a row) Today I finally did a ton of research and figured it out and did it right. Much better than the trial and error way I was doing it before.
