    Grant if you happen to see this, or if anyone else knows, I am wondering why vhnd.com now forwards to .net.

    I remember that Grant sold the domain name to MusicFans.com and was basically just administering the site, but it appears Music Fans has gone bye bye, but they still own the domain name vhnd.com. Would they not sell it back? So the only alternative was to register vhnd.net and forward the .com address.

    Just curious if anyone has an idea.

    I was unaware that VHND's name was held by another organization. That does kind of suck how established sites like that can go down the crapper from internet shakeups.

    vhnd.net is an interim measure to keep the site alive. The folding of the musicfans company has resulted in most of their sites (including UW2) going down with them.

    I was given less than 10 days to find a new web host, so I registered vhnd.net, moved everything over to the new host, and put a meta redirect thingy at vhnd.com to push everyone to the new site.

    The DNS transfer went through today so vhnd.com now points at my new host, as a virtual redirect to vhnd.net.

    Now all I have to do is get the vhnd.com domain name signed back over to me. I'm confident this will happen eventually.

    In the meantime, visitors can continue to use both vhnd.com and vhnd.net to access the site.

    Everything will work out OK, man. If they didn't come along I probably would have stopped doing the site.

    Without going into specifics, this isn't what happened. I had the name registered with Network Solutions in 1996 and went through 5 or 6 web hosts as the site grew.

    The reason I don't own vhnd.com is because I sold it to the musicfans company. Although they broke a lot of promises, they didn't really rip me off.

    OK Grant, thanks for clearing that up. I once purchased a domain from Network Solutions too. However, their prices and service were below average IMO. The only reason I went with them was because I didn't know anything about buying domain names at the time and I just bought it from the first place I found (ya I know it's irresponsible). Glad everything is working out anyway Grant.

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
