Yes, that mailbot is a bit picky (thats an understatement)

But if you've fought it enough, then it should be relatively easy to go through the cgi forms, even tho its in russian.

The good news is: Once you've established all three necessary handles (Organization, Maintainer, Person), you get a nice web-based interface in your language of choice (Russian or English).
It's worth trying for.

The way i've got mine set up is that I manage it from MyDomain, and i've got email (actual mailboxes, too) via www.gawab.com
And, I've got IP forwarding being used on some of them to Portland.co.uk's servers, and I didn't even hafta switch nameservers. I'll try to post that IP address later.

Take a look at some of the stuff I've been able to do, all for free:

https://www.ripn.net/nic/dns/form/en/

Go there, its the form to sign up for your nic or what ever,

Then, when you get the confirmation e-mail, go here
https://www.ripn.net/nic/dns/form/en/

Log in and creat the wanted domain. Good luck.
But I don't get this... when I sign up, do I choose Organization or Person? I heard only organization works.
And besides that, the rest is Russian. I don't know russian!:confused: ;)

Just read ;-)

Hello,

As stated before you should register the three; person, organization, maintainer.

LOL- i don't know russian, and i managed!! FCOL- if the mailbot didn't teach ya anything, then maybe you need some more time with it!! :p

Don't enter passport, b-date, or p-addr because they will only take it all, not in parts. And passport is NOT msn passport; its an actual passport you'd take with ya to go to another country. If you don't own a physical passport, then dont enter that and b-date and p-addr. Also, for the organization, for some reason it wants a bank number, and although you're supposed to be able to skip that step if you dont have a russian bank account, it still whines for one. Cut and paste their example and change one number, any number, and it wont whine. It may help if you have a consistent naming scheme for the NIC- handles (USER-RIPN; for person; USER-MNT-RIPN; for maintainer; USER-ORG-RIPN; for organization) If you don't belong to any organization, then come up with one- think of something creative :p They won't care. It may also help if you have in another window their little how-to for each one if you get confused. While you may not want to enter your personal information (phone #, address)- don't be afraid to- they never call anyway, or send mail to ya.

Why do you need to register all three anyway? I just finished with the Person and the Maintainer, do I go and do the Organization one now? :confused:

I'm done with all three and received the e-mails alredy. Still can't log in, do I still need to wait for something?

here's an example of what i mean by 'names of fields':

An example in english:

Valid template for object 'FREE EMAIL INC.' (field 'mnt-adm') not found
in this request - FATAL ERROR!
There are FATAL ERRORS in request, object is not processed.


An example in Russian (not same message tho)

ðÒÁ×ÉÌØÎÏ ÚÁÐÏÌÎÅÎÎÁÑ ÆÏÒÍÁ ÎÁ ÏÂßÅËÔ 'MORRIS3-MNT-RIPN' (ÐÏÌÅ
'mnt-by') ÎÅ ÎÁÊÄÅÎÁ × ÚÁÑ×ËÅ - ïûéâëá!
÷ ÆÏÒÍÅ ÏÐÉÓÁÎÉÑ ÅÓÔØ æáôáìøîùå ïûéâëé, ÏÂØÅËÔ ÎÅ ÂÕÄÅÔ ÏÂÒÁÂÏÔÁÎ.

See the 'mnt-by' thing? Thats what a name of a field is when there's sumthin wrong. If you see anything like this in a return email, then you need to try again (and again if necessary) Hope you get it, its not impossible, just difficult (very).

Never mind now. I already got the third e-mail yesterday saying that my account has been setup and stuff. Now I can access the control panel and requested a few domains already. Hope they accept it. :D

Hmmm... I just got a reply and this is what the e-mail says.

Dear Madam/Sir,
We are sorry to notify that the check of '***.COM.RU'
DNS-servers has failed with the following error(s):

1. Could not obtain SOA record for ***.COM.RU. from ns1.secondary.com.(198.133.199.3, 198.133.199.3)

2. Could not obtain SOA record for ***.COM.RU. from ns1.valcato.net.(64.191.4.227, 64.191.4.227)



Please try to correct the problems before the next check
retry in 3 hours.

See the DNS recommendations at http://www.ripn.net/nic/rfc/rfc1912.txt
if you need help.


Thank you,
RIPN mail processor.

I censored the domain because I don't want other people to register it, LOL. :)

What am I doing wrong here? Well, I didn't really get about the nameservers anyway. You need to have two different nameservers for your domain? I searched on this and found that Secondary.com was a good choice, so I went with them.

So what am I supposed to do now? Re-request the domain again? When I look up the domain in my control panel it said "RIPN NCC check in progress." I'm really confused here. Somebody help. :(

Yahoo is after you :)

No really, its amazing how Yahoo chases up some of those cybersquatters or people who have similar domain names.
