BornIn.Asia - We want your domains!

BornIn.Asia - We want your domains!

Have a domain that you bought in a rush but have no idea what to use it for?

Or you have a few domains that you would like to see people using the their own creativity to create subdomains and make small websites? (That's how BornIn.Asia was born! http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/4997/let-exclusive-bornin.asia-live-in-beta)

Or if you just want to contribute something for the LET community?

Then please PM me the domain and I will add them to BornIn.Asia and give our lovely LET members more options to expand their creativity!

A few things to note:

  1. The domain will still be yours, just like I hope others would respect my creativity, I respect yours as well. At no point I will claim ownership of your domain and you will not need to do any kind of transfer on your domain. All you need to do is to change the nameservers to ns1.bornin.asia, ns2.bornin.asia and ns3.bornin.asia at your registrar and PM me and I will take care of the rest.

Note that the domain does not have to be a .asia, I believe any domain would do except those that require the NS to have the same gtld as the domain.

  1. The domain has to be meaningful or of some value, so domains like ahjfhdsjfhidsalfsagfiufdagifd.com will not be added to the collection even if you changed the nameservers. That is why I prefer you to get in touch with me first before changing the name servers.

  2. Please be committed. Although the domain is yours and you are free to take it back by changing nameservers at any time, you have to remember that members of LET community (and potentially clients from other communities) have spent time to think of a good subdomain and potentially time and effort to develop websites around the subdomain as well. Therefore, if you are willing to contribute your domain, I would like to ask for at least a year of commitment. There won't be a binding contract to force you to do so, but I really hope you could. If it is something you just want to "park" for a week/month, then please kindly find make a parking page and find a cheap shared hosting and point the domain to there.

  3. You will NOT be financially compensated for this. BornIn.Asia was basically a side project that I did for fun. It is not making any money at the moment (in fact, it is "losing" money because I have to pay for CPanel and VPSes) and even if in the future I decide to add some sort of advertising, it will be strictly used to cover the cost of operation. As such, unfortunately I will not be able to compensate you. However, your LET username will be added to this thread and I will make a post for each of the domains added on the support forum as well. If you intend to make some quick cash out of your domain name, I would suggest listing them on Sedo.com

Thanks a lot for everyone's help! Together we will be able to make LET a even greater community!

Again, special thanks to @acarrascope for donating cominginto.asia, it has been added so now you can choose between bornin.asia and cominginto.asia subdomains during sign up.

    Going to PM you now, got a nice domain name

  • Whilst I appreciate the generosity of this idea and those that contribute to it, I can see a problem.

    Imagine the scenario where somebody donates a REALLY good domain. This gets a lot of take up and is used for some cool stuff. The donator of the domain can decide to change the NS back to one in their control and then have access to all the email for the users that signed up. Spoof sites could also be created that could then steal login credentials etc.

    I'm not deliberately trying to be negative, but I think this has the potential to go horribly wrong.

    @xmob I donate a domain and with the scheme in bornin.asia the root domain in the donated domain is available even for develop a site in the future. But really, i don't know how a external server can access to the stored information only with NS change?. cominginto.asia is a great domain and develop something is the plan but not a change in NS, is not needed at all.

    Im out

  • i have redlightdistrict.asia that i could donate, i really can't see a use for it only for IRC vhost.

  • @acarrascope said: i don't know how a external server can access to the stored information only with NS change?

    It can't. However, if you delegate back to a NS under your control, you have access to new incoming email (MX points to a server under your control). You can also point to a web server under your control, spoofing any site you choose.

  • @xmob said: It can't. However, if you delegate back to a NS under your control, you have access to new incoming email (MX points to a server under your control). You can also point to a web server under your control, spoofing any site you choose.

    Which is the case with any dynDNS service and failed domain-renewal.

    Correct. But a failed domain renewal on a current and operating service is incompetent. Offering a service using a domain that you don't ultimately control could end up causing problems.

  • @xmob Not sure if you heard, but FreeDNS.Afraid.org offers subdomains on other owners' domains. I have yet to hear about these malicious stories happening over there.

    Thanks for your input and concern, the donor of the domain will not have access to the management portal and hence any personal info. However, indeed if the owner decide to take back his/her domain, say domain.com, add on a subdomain sub.domain.com, then all the emails send to [email protected] will gets send to the new account. However, I believe most of the members have their own emails and as far as I can think of, this seems to be the biggest issue.

    As for spoof website, yes that could be another issue as well, but again, I really hope users could at least use basic precautions and don't put their clients' data in danger (for example, SSL is good in this case.)

    You don't ultimately control a domain in a ccTLD/gTLD either. It all depends on your registrar and the NIC. I can't cite it ATM because I've no time searching, but there have been some domain-hijackings in the past of big and well-known companies.

    Whereas I understand your criticism, I also wouldn't trust an unknown dynDNS/subdomain provider, I never had any problems with afraid.org and I'm using them since more than 10 years. And they are completely privately run and depend on third persons domains. There have been other dynDNS providers that have been corporations that have stopped working without notices in advance.

    As long as you don't have control over your domain through the NIC directly and no dnssec is in place you'll always have the problem of hijacking a domain.

  • @japon said: There have been other dynDNS providers that have been corporations that have stopped working without notices in advance.

    I will make sure I give some notice in advance to everyone should I not be able to run the service for any reason (although I do not see any at the moment).

    @zhuanyi So since you are using our domain name do we get to upload a page at least? That would direct them to our site or contain advertising? on the main domain page?

  • @24khost said: porn!

    I am pretty sure I read somewhere that porn is not allowed on the servers in Chicago VPS...and for 50MB of space...that is difficult to start a porn site...

  • @zhuanyi lol!!!! The domain name is something though that could be used for porn.

    Redlightdistrict.asia would be an alright porn site name.

    you get 50MB of space, whatever you do with that 50MB, provide you are not doing anything silly, is not really something I care :)

    In fact I think I have enabled Advance DNS Editor which will allow you to change DNS of the A record directly, so you do not even to upload anything.

    Sorry but I don't think I can find another server at such a low cost, and since this is a free service which I am operating from the money in my own pocket, I don't plan to spend a lot either.

  • Give @zuhanyi a break people. There aren't many other people that provide a service such as bornin.asia out of their own pocket for the benefit of other around on LET.

    And if you were to win the kickstarter thing then surely you'd want to take your time and make sure you do it properly as well rather than rush and end up in the 'pool.

    I don't buy domains from others as I have enough myself. However if you are committed in helping the community by offering the domain as one of the domains people could get subdomains from, I'd be happy to send you further instructions.

    Anything that you have no use for at least a year or so I can add it to the list for LET members to choose, essentially it works like afraid.org. I will never be the owner of the domain so you don't have to worry about me taking it away from you :)
