Gotta hate sites which refuse valid email addresses, IMG included

06 May 2017 - 10:50 AM

I switched today to a new email address, with my own domain name in the .click TLD (I can't use a common TLD like .com since my last name is the same as a well known brand which obviously has already registered common commercial TLDs). So I've begun the tedious process of switching tens or hundreds of registered addresses (forums, online shops, etc.). Now you'd think by 2017 web sites would know a valid email address follows the following format: a@b.c, and c is no longer limited to 2, 3 or even 4 characters, there's a plethora of top level domains up to 18 letters.

So why maybe 1 out 5 sites think it's a good idea to check if the user has typed a valid email address, but isn't up to date and refuse my .click address (.click started in November 2014, it's not that new). :wall:  And the IMG forum is one of these offenders, so I can rant there! :)


History repeats itself: back in 2002 or 2003, I started using a .name address, at the time one of the first TLDs with more than three letters, and that was a common issue I already encountered. It took years before 99% of sites accepted .name.

Edit: and for those wondering why I switched from .name to .click: I was forced to by GoDaddy's incompetence. Third level .name domains (like firstname.lastname.name) have the .name email forwarding service which forwards email sent to firstname@lastname.name to a mailbox of your choice. It's better than having an address like foo@firstname.lastname.name, which is cumbersome. GoDaddy stopped without warning the forwarding service (even though the domain name is valid until 2020), and transferring to another registrar would be long and complicated (GoDaddy's hotline doesn't even know what I was talking about). It goes without saying I didn't register the .click domain with them! Also, I can't register the 2nd level mylastname.name which is unavailable.
