Wow.. I can’t believe I forgot to renew this domain name.
I tried to access my blog two hours ago and all I saw were a bunch of ads. I hadn’t received any domain expiration e-mails from Namecheap – perhaps they were accidentally caught by my spam filter – but fortunately I could buy back the domain name from Namecheap at no extra cost.
I’ll definitely need to keep better track of this so this won’t happen again. Fortunately this domain is just my personal blog and it doesn’t really make any money, all my important domain names are payed up front for many years.
