For temporary access, you should be able to FTP into the server and change the XOOPS_URL part of mainfile.php to be what your host gave you as your alternate url... It should be something like

http://server19.host-name.net/~limecity

or something to that effect. If you change that, then you'll at least be able to get in until your domain is fixed =)

Hope this helps!

Looks like you just updated the information on your domain a few days ago; this could be the reason why you're having the HOLD message. Since the Expiration date is set for 2005, I'd just give it a few days. It should sort itself out in a day or two!

In the meantime use my advice in the last post if you absolutely need to get into your site; otherwise, time is your best friend.

Good luck!

i contact the registrar and they said my site inaccessable is not because of the HOLD status..

its because of this

A record: 67.18.64.148
CNAME: catscity.com [TTL=14400]
MX- Records: 0 mysite.com. [TTL=14400] IP=67.18.64.148 [TTL=14400] [*A]

they said the site don't have A record. whatever tat means.


Host A = new host
Host B = previous host

i transfer my domain over from B to A.
and both kept pushing the problem around..

A ask me to look for B..
then B ask me look for A then A ask me look for the registrar.. then registrar said the problem lies in A.

then A said B still handling my domain reg.
and now B check on whois and stated A is holding my domain and nothing to do with them anymore..

i paid my domain fee to host A already. and now they are requesting for another fee to handle the domain registration.


someone explain to me .. what is this

A record: 67.18.64.148
CNAME: catscity.com [TTL=14400]
MX- Records: 0 mysite.com. [TTL=14400] IP=67.18.64.148 [TTL=14400] [*A]

You would have to be persisent in solving the problem.

nslookup from onestopserver.com
>>catscity.com
Server: onestopserver.com
Address: 67.18.64.148

catscity.com preference = 0, mail exchanger = catscity.com
catscity.com
origin = dns1.onestopserver.com
mail addr = admin.onestopserver.com
serial = 2004051903
refresh = 14400 (4H)
retry = 7200 (2H)
expire = 3600000 (5w6d16h)
minimum ttl = 86400 (1D)
catscity.com nameserver = webcentral-dns.biz.catscity.com
catscity.com internet address = 67.18.64.148
catscity.com internet address = 67.18.64.148

Your web IP is also the DNS1 and mailserver IP for onestopserver.com

You really don't want your host to put the DNS server on the webserver they are selling. I would not use such a host for sure.

If you had to pay additional fee, you might want to find a new domain host (godaddy is one) and web host (surpassing hosting?). With their record, if I were you, I would avoid your current hosts at all costs.

Try to separate the two so you don't end up being taken hostage by the web host company.

Sorry can't help you further. Good luck.

I am already taken hostage and they are putting a knife on my throat.

i wish i can buy the services from outside my country but the problem is i have no way to paying those outside the nation. no paypal and no credit cards.

A record: 67.18.64.148
CNAME: catscity.com [TTL=14400]
MX- Records: 0 catscity.com. [TTL=14400] IP=67.18.64.148
[TTL=14400] [*A]

they mention that my site doesn't have A record.
who should be making the A record?

1. my ex-host who registered my domain in the 1st place
2. my current host who is hosting my domain now
3. the registrar :onlinenic.com ?
