Please note, it is our understanding that it may take until early next week before the buddies.org site is readily accessible (within the continental US) via the URL shown above. It takes a while for a domain to be distributed throughout the global internet.
In the meantime, the IP address style URL: [http://188.8.131.52/] should always work.
In addition, the URL: http://www.buddies.org/ may work when just using buddies.org does not.
If you have the inclination, try them all and let us know the results [i.e., which URLs work or not, what internet service, and what geographic region]! We can now be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to try it out. We would appreciate feedback on how this mirrored site compares to the site here. Though CTSNET's internet access is "technically" faster (dual T3's vs. partial T3 equal to six times T1 rates) than SIMPLENET's, we hope that in actual use, the reverse is what will be experienced by most visitors.
Obviously, we are counting on the fact that SIMPLENET has far fewer customers than CTSNET, along with SIMPLENET's use of high performance web servers since all their customers are paying only for web hosting. SIMPLENET does not provide any internet access to its customers.
The current estimated time for domain registration from InterNIC is two weeks for .ORG domains.
The 4 MB of storage that CTSNET provides is very generous. Though we have stayed under this limit, it has taken a bit of effort to keep it there. We have had to clean-up, and optimize or delete files several times.
