I had a related problem just recently. tsp.net is about to move. baylink.com and tbtoday.com (among others) will be taking over the physical hardware, servers, and network numbers. So I tried to submit host registrations for ns1. and ns2.baylink.com. One went through fine, the other disappeared. The _reason_ it disappeared was that the IP address already was registered... as tsp-hst (tsp.net). Hold on, cause this is where it gets pertinent. I had to call and have the domain reg for tbtoday.com hand walked. They ran it through... wih tsp.net as one of the nameservers. They didn't confirm it, although they did carbon the registration approval to the registered contact for that nameserver. So, what _is_ their policy supposed to be here? Cheers, -- jra -- Jay R.
