My Domain Was Hijacked

ename-hijackI’m sad to report that this domain name,, was hijacked today. I have had this domain for 17 years and have been the sole owner. Due to some unknown method, it was stolen from me and I’m now at the mercy of the hijackers to either make their demand or sit on it. If you are contacted about this domain, please know that it was taken unlawfully and will be reclaimed.

I received an email this morning with an EPP transfer code, however assumed it was triggered by accident and ignored it. Big mistake, but at that point, it was probably too late. I’ll report updates here as things unfold – well, at least as long as I’m able.

Still Hopeful,


P.S. Have any insights or experience to share that might lead to a successful reversal? Please email me at

After much angst and frustration, my domain was retrieved. If you have a similar issue, I’m happy to help. Please contact me at the email above and I’ll gladly share my story and insights.

Sunday Afternoon

The girls have gone to Religious Education classes at church so it’s just me and Andrew. We usually snag a snack (today it was Christmas cookies with green icing – you can see a few traces), turn on a movie, and take a nap. Sometimes we play ball in the back yard and swing on the swingset. Whatever we do, we have fun and enjoy the carefree time…just us boys.

Early Sunday Morning

The house is quiet. The sun is rising. Moved to the couch because too many kids wanted in our bed. A little one is snuggled up by my side – confidently drifting back to dreamland. Another one takes her place on the other couch – resisting the hypnotic lull of the fan’s quiet murmur. The light outside slowly turns the grey into vibrant colors. The heater turns on to signal the seasonal shift. My mind wanders to the week ahead, but quickly returns to the sounds of our waking home. Life is grand and I am truly blessed.

Final Morning

In a rare treat on our trip, Daddy hooked up the Apple TV and the kids watched a show while eating a bowl of cereal. After breakfast, we took a walk down to the lake to explore some of the old trees and practice our rock skipping skills.
