Sorry guys but it looks like the domain expired. Just throwing this out there, please let others know that you can still access the forum by going to www.steelersxtreme.forumotion.com

I don't know if you have access to e-mailaddresses of SteelerFreak58, effyou515, Great Randino, solardave, Shalieve5090 and Steeler-in-west as they are the ones who have been posting this year. Maybe you can reach out to them that way?

Hey, Guys. Sorry I've been away and allowed this issue to arise. Been dealing with a lot of work/life stuff for quite a while, and being distracted, I totally forgot to renew the domain name.

Long story short, I originally purchased the name through Forumotion and renewed it every year with a click of a button in the Admin panel. I never dealt durectly with godaddy.

Right now, godaddy has the domain name parked, and I'm not sure how to get it back short of buying it directly from there for a much larger chunk of money than I'm willing to spend.

For now, we can use the original forumotion address. If I can't get the domain back cheaply, maybe we'll rebrand or something. Not sure yet. Still trying to figure all this out, which I'll do when I'm done kicking myself in the ass for allowing it to happen.

Anyway, I'm glad to see some of you have found your way back. Domain Expired 230572241

How much is it to get the domain name back? If you don't mind my asking of course.

I posted on the Facebook page as well with the forumotion link so others can find their way here. If I get some free time I'll look into emailing folks as well.

Not entirely sure. I've never bought a domain directly. If you go to steelersxtreme.com, it takes you to a godaddy page that says the domain is parked. There's a link that takes you to this page:


https://www.godaddy.com/domainsearch/find?domainToCheck=steelersxtreme.com&isc=GPPTCOM&key=parkweb&tmskey=dpp_dbs&utm_campaign=x_dom-broker_parkedpages_x_x_invest_001&utm_medium=parkedpages&utm_source=godaddy

Whatever that is, it's $70 plus fees to start before the domain is even purchased. Not sure if that's the process or just an ad.

Through forumotion, I had to pay only $5 per month for the domain. $5 is just the fee for the package we have ... we actually got the domain for free through forumotion because we had good traffic for a number of years, and forumotion makes money off the ads that appear on the forum. Going directly through godaddy, it'll be considerably more on top of the purchase, whatever that cost is.

That was the long version of "I have no clue." Domain Expired 1664291743

Well I guess if we have to go without a domain then we go without though I am not quite sure how that'll effect our traffic or potentially new members trying to register here.

Well I guess if we have to go without a domain then we go without though I am not quite sure how that'll effect our traffic or potentially new members trying to register here.

If we can't get the original domain back, we have 3 options ...

1. Stick with what it is now (my least favorite option).
2. Change it to something like steelersxtreme.net. I want steelersxtreme.gov, just because. Domain Expired 1797695198
3. Or change the name completely and stick with .com.

The first option is the cheapest and easiest, but I'm not a fan of the longer name.

The second option will require a small fee and allow us to keep the name, but I'd prefer a .com domain.

Option 3 would require a fee and we'd have to rebrand, but we could get a .com domain.

Any change won't affect new members. Where it hurts is searches. If we can't get the old domain back, any option we choose puts us back to square one.

At this point, I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Option 2 or 3 then I guess, but the most important thing is to send a newsletter or mail to every registered member with the new name so everyone here can make the switch.

Hey guys. I only found this because I was getting messages on my PC when a member logged in. I couldn't figure out why or how I was getting those messages. Finally did a search and found the Facebook page and the link to the forum. I don't have Facebook so got lucky I guess. Domain Expired 2087824411

Been too long since I've visited and checked in on everyone. Kids growing up and keeping me too busy to read I suppose. I hope everyone has been doing well and I am going to make an effort to check in more often!
