I opened up my e-mail to be surprised by the message that my hosting account has been set up for my new domain, hosted by Earthlink. Well, that’s nice … but there is one problem. The person that signed up for this domain and everything else misspelled his e-mail address. Meaning I got his e-mail, instead of him. It’s a domain I actually don’t own! The e-mail has all of the log-in and FTP information for the new site … I think I will just have to put a “Lost & Found” ad up there:
Dear Fallan: You misspelled your e-mail address. I got your e-mail. Please contact me and I will send the information on to you. Rewards accepted. Christine
My luck though? I would be busted for hacking or something like that. They would say I broke into their domain. Considering they registered a URL too, I guess I could just wait for the whois to update and contact them that way. *sigh* But that’s just not as fun!
