Apparently NSOL thinks they are "special".. Even though my nameservers are
registered with OpenSRS, NSOL thinks that I need to spend time (weeks,
sometimes), sending them an updated "host" form every time I change an IP
Luckily, the root servers reflect the correct nameserver IP addresses, even
though NSOL's whois doesn't. But this still doesn't keep my customers from
asking me why WHOIS doesn't show the correct nameserver information, and
worrying that people won't be able to get to their website or send them mail.
Of course, my answer to them is always "use a different registrar".
Hopefully, eventually, enough people will leave NSOL that they'll start
