Domains, hosting and aspirin

The headaches continue...It was taking too long to propagate so I go to login to Dotster to check. I can't log in to my dashboard. So I wait 12 hours or so and still couldn't log in. So I contacted support.

Come to find out when you let a domain laspe Dotster doesn't automatically use your pervious name servers and instead switches to their own nameservers. No other registrar I have used ever did this and I couldn't log in to change them,, looks like a connection problem with Cloudflkare. So support tells me they changed the nameervers...except they changed them to Dotsters nameservers again.

I finally got the correct nameservers a few hours ago and propagated correctly pretty much everywhere, except where I am. I'll transfer this domain name to either Namecheap or Enom soon. Dotster charges a lot more ($16) and gives worse service than either of them. The only reason I'm with them is because years ago they bought where I first registered the domain then jacked up the prices. I was too lazy to transfer it...until now.
