New URL
Thanks to generous donations by others within the DnD Administration, I've acquired the domain name https://thedndsanctuary.eu. I'll probably make the switch sometime tomorrow. It should be uneventful, but at least a few minutes of downtime are to be expected.

Does uneventful mean all earlier addresses in my browser history will continue to work? Will they redirect to the new address?

It is already today, isn't it?  Shall we change our advertising links or..?

No, but yes. :P

Probably better not to until after.

Edit: Sure, why not. The site is currently active at both locations. I'll make it into a redirect later.

Does the site load for you correctly at https://thedndsanctuary.eu/ yet? I'll wait until tomorrow before I truly complete the move so there'll be no DNS propagation issues.

Yup.
I happened being not logged in, though, and I haven't dug any more yet...

Looks like immediately after login, the .eu site redirects to fransdejonge. Tried in Elinks.

Yes, I'll keep it that way for a few more hours. The forum's internal configuration is still set to dnd.fransdejonge.com, so all the links point there. There's no actual redirection; if you changed the URLs manually they'd all work on thedndsanctuary.eu

So, what do we do with already posted links to topics, threads etc.?

There's no need to do anything: it'll redirect automatically.

Edit: Okay, I changed it all for real now. Please let me know if there are any issues.

Looks like I am @.eu now. I had trouble logging in for a while, but evidently I am in now :) Posting in Elinks.

That's why you should use a bookmark with a nickname/keyword "dnd". :P

Thank you for your helpful message! :)

Okay, here's the story of what happened:

The primary DNS server is apparently down:
Code: [Select]
$ host -a thedndsanctuary.eu ns01.weservit.nl
Trying "thedndsanctuary.eu"
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


The secondary DNS server is fine:
Code: [Select]
$ host -a thedndsanctuary.eu ns02.weservit.eu
Trying "thedndsanctuary.eu"
Using domain server:
Name: ns02.weservit.eu
Address: 83.96.159.200#53
Aliases:

Received 273 bytes from 83.96.159.200#53 in 24 ms


But! Unfortunately there a typo snuck into the DNS record back when we set it up:
Code: [Select]
$ host -t ns thedndsanctuary.eu
thedndsanctuary.eu name server ns01.weservit.eu.
thedndsanctuary.eu name server ns01.weservit.nl.


It's fixed now:
Code: [Select]
$ host -t ns thedndsanctuary.eu
thedndsanctuary.eu name server ns01.weservit.nl.
thedndsanctuary.eu name server ns02.weservit.eu.


I apologize for any inconvenience.

Good to have the place back.
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

I'm sure you can get nslookup to spit out the same information as host or dig.
