So I just received a livejournal comment e-mail in my inbox on Darxus's server... meaning that not only has the domain transfer to GANDI gone through (knew that earlier this morning) but the DNS records have updated. Wooo hooo! There will probably still be tinkering and troubleshooting to do, but my e-mail is officially back up without any problems (it was never really down, it was just... um... continuing to be difficult.) And Nchanted.net will no longer have annoying pop-ups due to the URL forwarding Namezero did. Yea!
Also, never ever ever use namezero. they suck. for web-mail hosting and domain registration and their support e-mail didn't work half the time, causing me to spend cellphone minutes on hold because I couldn't just e-mail them. I curse the day that Opeth used them to register nchanted.net for me.
