Haven't been able to log on to domainsponsor.com for several days due to expired certificate. I could over-ride it but in the first instance reached out to my account exec, Raymond Goodwin, so far to no avail.

Here's the message

That is sad but the truth is that DS has been having issues for more than a year.

the login screen at smartnames dot com returns: "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised."

What kind of inane operation would advertise such an insecure operation. Can't they get a college kid to set up a secure connection for them?

I'm just on the cusp of a US$100 payout so just expect the site contracted to earn money with my several hundred names to operate crisply and effiviently

Thanks for your reply, man.
