Title: The domain
Post by: RMF on February 06, 2012, 01:27:25
Hello everyone,

(tl;dr: There is a summary below.)

As you may or may not know, we are still using this forum from time to time. I promoted the .tk domain,, as much as possible in the past because .tk domains need visitors to remain active (25 in 90 days). has changed their policy on that. It's not exactly clear to me how it works now, but it seems I can use the domain up to 12 months from now if I keep updating it in the .tk admin panel (I'll set reminders for that). At the very least we can use it to the end of this month.

In short, .tk domains became finite, you can't keep it forever for free with the only restriction that it needs to generate some visitors. Therefore I made another shortcut for the long url:

Try it, type in your browser's address bar and you will get the ioclan homepage!
It seems that for some, "" is a "bit" hard to remember (phun intended). Tinyurl is a bit more memorable, so works too!
For the real character counting die-hards, I lastly created

Summary for the lazy ones:
Update your bookmarks/favorites! The domain is not sure to remain alive, please use one of the following in the future:
- or

Also update any links to us on your own clan website. You can also use the real URL if you like,, it's just a bit longer and probably less easy to remember.
End of summary.

(Damn this feels nostalgic, posting a news post... I hardly see the forum index nowadays, I just go to the newest post from the homepage. Using the index to go to the news board and posting a message felt like going back in time a year and a half.)
