Domain Change

If you recently tried to go to the main Dex site and saw GoDaddy Cash Parking advertisements instead; here is why:

GoDaddy apparently has set up a program for domain squatters to gain revenue from previously active domains.  The domain owner (in my case a squatter who pounced on my domain once GoDaddy failed to auto-renew it) then makes revenue off of a parked site based upon advertisement.  In turn, GoDaddy gets a nominal monthly fee for the Cash Parking service.

Basically, they create a market for this bad behavior.

So I switched my registrar and the domain which ties to the Dex project.

Here is the new site for Dex.
