Once again I experience how my procrastination wastes time and money, and affects others.
A few days ago I mentioned attempting to renew and transfer my domain name from Network Solutions to iPowerWeb to save a bunch of money. Despite assurances from iPowerWeb that everything was fine and in order, it actually wasn't because this morning I discovered my website zenamoon.com is unavailable pending renewal.
Amazingly, I haven't panicked or gotten pissed. I just feel dumb 'cuz I know better. Most of all I'm very, very sorry to my customers for causing inconvenience.
So I wound up taking the path of least resistance after all -- which I should have done in the first place -- renewing my domain through Network Solutions.
Now I'll have to follow up with iPowerWeb to:
- Cancel my transfer request
- Verify my credit card isn't charged
Many times jumping through hoops in order to save a few bucks really doesn't pay off in the short or long run! I've spent at least 5 hours on this issue, which is a wasteful misuse of my time. Lesson learned!
