riscos.org.uk sub-domain blipBy Chris Williams. Published: 8th Jun 2003, 22:55:08 | Permalink | Printable
Get emailingUsers with .riscos.org.uk sub-domains pointed at their websites will need to re-request their sub-domain following an unfortunate accident, we've learnt. Webmaster Mike Stubbs has asked affected users to drop him an email if they wish to get their sub-domain back again. Key sub-domains such as cvs.riscos.org.uk, discknight.riscos.org.uk and digitalcd.riscos.org.uk appear to have been restored.
"I want as many users as possible to contact me before the old server is switched off and the old subdomains die", Mike told us earlier today.
The riscos.org.uk website itself is empty at the moment so we'll dig deep into the article vault to pull out information on the free riscos.org.uk subdomain service. By dropping Mike an email, you can request that
whatever.riscos.org.uk points to a RISC OS related website so as to provide a memorable URL. For example, the easily remembered bookmaker.riscos.org.uk points to the mouthful of a URL, users.argonet.co.uk/users/tigger/bookmaker/.
A significant number of riscos.org.uk sub-domains were in use before this glitch.
