I was able to do this with the cooperation of some helpful and historically-minded AOL employees, who set up the DNS tricks for the home.mcom.com and mosaic.mcom.com domains, and hosted the old content there for me.
Unfortunately, this is a fragile situation. For the second or third time, those changes inside AOL's DNS configuration have gotten reverted, and home.mcom.com has begun redirecting back to aol.com. The last couple of times this happened, I was able to get it fixed, but this time, all of my previous contacts inside AOL no longer work there, and have so far been unable to point me at whoever is in charge now.
Dear Lazyweb, do you know anyone inside AOL who could point me at the right person?
What I would like, in increasing order of preference:
- 3: Put things back the way they were before, with AOL hosting the content.
2: Or, point the home.mcom.com and mosaic.mcom.com DNS to my server's IP, and I'll serve the content myself.
1: Ideally, just transfer the mcom.com domain to me. I'd be willing to pay for it, if it's not a fortune.
Who should I talk to?
