Is It Possible To Pay With Negative Balance?

HOME      >>       Web Hosting Support

The Simpleton

This is a rather silly but also urgent doubt. I need to purchase a particular domain using myCENTs and I need to get it soon because I am aware that another member at the Xisto forums is also trying to get it. The problem is that I purchased another domain just today so my account balance has come down to $2.68, so it will take at least 20 days for me to reach the required amount to pay for my domain (my target has a .in TLD)

 

My doubt is that is it possible to purchase the domain with hosting right now? I know the invoice will show negative balance, but I can guarantee that I will get the required amount within 20 days, because I am earning $1 per day on an average with myCENTs, so I will be paying $1 everyday in the invoice, reducing the negative balance. I hope I am getting my point through. Could someone kindly tell me if this is possible? I really need to get that domain very soon!

Well, I've never paid with a negative balance before, but I'm sure after a certain number of days that you do not complete paying the invoice, the order is cancelled and you get your myCENTS back.

 

But that's only happened to me with hosting. I dont know about domains, though.

I'm pretty sure you can't buy a domain without having the funds available. That would be like going to the store and asking if you can have X item without any money (not credit card, just "trust me, I'll bring back the cash")I could be wrong on that, but especially regarding domains I doubt it's possible. With domains Trap would have to pay to do the registration, so if you were to back out they would be left with a registered domain with no use for it.Just make a deposit, :(.


anwiii

HECK NO! you need to be posting like everyone else. not asking favors just for you. if you are so worried about a omain name, borrow $10 and save your credits for the hosting. you already have enough actually....

 

i also have a problem when two people want the same domain. one person had the original thought and made the mistake of telling someone else just so someone else can steal it. this whole thread seems fishy to me

this whole thread seems fishy to me

well i was only asking a doubt im not running away anywhere after registering :(

anyway, thanks for the replies guys. If it had been a .com TLD then I could have managed to get the $10 from somewhere else but my TLD is gonna cost me $19 which no one is gonna lend me immediately. So I guess I just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope that my competitor's fingers are a little uncrossed :angel: I just have another doubt; I hope it gets cleared in this thread itself.....

I'm using the Logic hosting plan ($1.95 per month). I'm not very sure about it, but does the package allow to host 2 domains ? If yes, that would save me some money with hosting coz I already have 2 domains with trap and m now competing to get another. So if they all can be hosted with the same plan that would save a lot of money. I think it's not possible with the Logic plan....any other plan perhaps? Please answer this doubt too before someone else thinks this is fishy or crawly or something else! :excl:

Your allowed to have up to 5 add on domains and 5 parked domains in your account if you have the default logic plan, of course you can add more to your account if you wish.


akashi

As harrison858 said, you can buy the domain first and pay after you get your mycent. At least this will prevent others from buying the same domain from xisto. (I think :( )

five is more than enough :( thanks for clearing up my doubt that should save me a lot on hosting. Now I just need to collect $20 as soon as possible while taking care not to spam here...wow that's a challenge! :excl: but i think i can manage it fine. i just hope and hope again that my competitor doesn't reach there before me. we're friends actually but in matters like these best friends become best enemies! :angel:

to tell the truth, if i had the capacity of paying at least $10 online by myself, I wouldn't be in these forums :excl: and all my friends are in the same situation as i am, so no help from them either!

akashi

I mean, you can place an order to xisto first. Xisto will wait untill your balance is enough to pay your order. By doing these, others (your friends who also here) won't be able to buy the domain because the domain is already ordered :angel:

The Simpleton

can we do that? that would be like reserving a domain, isn't it? well if that works it would be wonderful. I'll send a support ticket right away and report back here what happens. Thanks for the suggestions all of you :(


akashi

I don't know wether this will work or not, but at least you can try this way. But the order will be canceled if you don't pay for several days (let say, about 1-2 weeks maybe,.. ask Xisto about this).

And don't forget to post here, whether this trick works or not :( Hope you can buy your domain pal :angel:

Well I got a surprising answer from the support team and it's in my favour - I'll give you more details tomorrow, after registering my domain! Yes, that's right; the reply has enabled me to register my .in domain tomorrow itself! :angel: I'm not giving more details here lest my competitor-friend takes benefit of it as well :( but I'm really happy that I'm going to win the race at last (unless my friend posts all night and reaches there first, which is very unlikely!)I'm putting it as an add-on domain so it's a big saving for me. Oh I'm loving Xisto more and more with each passing day - it's been so helpful for me :excl:


akashi

Hope you can share with us your trick :( N, it's not only you who love Xisto, we do also :angel:

The Simpleton

It's not a trick actually, it's pretty straightforward and you can do it too, although it's for a limited time only and you need to contact the support team immediately after you do it, or you'll temporarily lost a lot of myCENTs (they'll restore it of course!) Anyway, I'm looking forward to tomorrow coming sooooooooooooon!


Saint_Michael

As harrison858 said, you can buy the domain first and pay after you get your mycent. At least this will prevent others from buying the same domain from xisto. (I think :excl: )

Nope, you be paying for the domain the moment you place order and then its approved by the admin.

five is more than enough :( thanks for clearing up my doubt that should save me a lot on hosting.

Well the best way to post is nice long quality posts, that way you can earn more through one post instead not earning much through several posts. Well instead of trying to compete with each other, join forces as you can do a lot more with a website with a group of people then going solo on a web project.


I mean, you can place an order to xisto first. Xisto will wait untill your balance is enough to pay your order. By doing these, others (your friends who also here) won't be able to buy the domain because the domain is already ordered :)

Like I mentioned earlier, you be making your first payment the moment you place your order, besides many many people frown on others reserving domains and not using them whatsoever.

Refer to my above statement.

Surprise they actually let you do that because people frown on others reserving domains and then not using them later and making sure others can't use it as well.

akashi

Wew, that's long answe michael. So then, how did kasperooney buy his domain? i'm still curious with that.@kasperooney : could you share with us :(


anwiii

al i can say is.... "?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?" anyway, it's probably just one of those new useless fad domains like come_on.in or something

for someone competing for the same domain though, there was sure a lot of public chatter about it.

rpgsearcherz

I'm also quite surprised they allowed you to get a domain without already having the funds available...I guess if you were very close to having enough at the time you bought the domain it would be understandable, but if you were still far away (by close I mean within $2-3) they're very trusting, :(.


The Simpleton

wow I never really expected this many people to respond to this topic! :(

ok, first let me tell you I did nothing special for this. It's just that Xisto is holding a special offer valid till 29 July. They're offering .in domains at $5.49 for the first year, and the usual $18.99 from the second year onwards. Well I'll be safe from the second year, I'm just happy that I was able to pay for the first year. The support team told me to contact them with the invoice number so that they could correct the amount from $18.99 to $5.49 and restore any extra balance that might have been deducted in the process. I did it and am just waiting for their response. I forgot to ask them whether there are any such offers for other TLDs as well. I guess I'll do it after all this is over.

Well, that's it - that's the 'trick' - nothing special about it!

Well instead of trying to compete with each other, join forces as you can do a lot more with a website with a group of people then going solo on a web project.

We had that discussion too but we figured that it wouldn't work out in the long term because one of us might be giving up on the project, resulting in the loss of both! So we agreed to fight it out on our own :excl:

al i can say is.... "?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?" anyway, it's probably just one of those new useless fad domains like come_on.in or something

well it's not a domain like that one, but all I can say that it's not entirely useless for me. I already have a website about computers, and now I plan to use this for a similar purpose - it's short (maybe not sweet) and easy to remember.

for someone competing for the same domain though, there was sure a lot of public chatter about it.

well since I didn't mention the domain name anywhere I was pretty sure I was safe until the last minute! And I'm really surprised that so many people responded to my initial question. That's really sweet of you guys :angel:


NEW TWIST: this just happened as I was typing out this reply - I got an email from the support team saying that my domain is not available!! They asked me to check for another domain at Xisto - Domains.com and guess what? The domain still says "available" when I check it. What does this mean? I got till the invoice step only because the domain was available in the first place, isn't it? Then why did I get such an email? :excl: Please help me out here if you know of such a situation....

anwiii

i always liked going here to check domain availabilities ----> https://instantdomainsearch.com/

you might want to do a quick search elsewhere for the availability and do a whois search. if the domain is coming up available, then it may have something to do with the .in extention itself which i believe is india. shrug
