RSS Subscribe Paymex credit card payments not being processed
Posted on 28/09/11 01:14PM

Our credit card payment provider Paymex has announced that they are no longer processing credit cards due to being closed down by their bank. Therefore we have had to disable the credit card payment option in our domain manager system. We do still accept payment by direct credit, online banking and cheque.
If you have a domain that is due to expire within the next week, and you don't think you will be able to make payment in time, please contact us. We do recommend renewing domains well before the expiry date so there is no risk of them expiring.

Posted on 08/09/11 01:39PM

Currently there appears to be a problem with Paymex and it's ability to process Mastercard payments. Therefore if you are registering or renewing a domain name, you will not currently be able to use your Mastercard. People trying to pay by Mastercard will just get an error. Please either use a Visa or Amex card, or select the direct credit/cheque payment option. Unfortunately this a problem with the payment provider Paymex, so is beyond our control.

RSS Subscribe Warning for .NZ New Zealand Domain Name Registrants
Posted on 26/08/11 11:37PM

In recent months we have become aware that a small number of our domain names clients have been contacted and supplied with incorrect information by other companies in the web development and hosting field. This incorrect information relates to where the domain name is registered, and that the domain name needs to be transferred to the web developers own management in order to work with their new website. This information is NOT correct. If your domain name is registered through us, it will work with ALL hosting servers/websites/email configurations, no matter what they are. All you or your developer needs to do is change the DNS settings or point the domain records to their servers, which can be done very simply inside your Domain Manager account at www.domains.loungenetwork.co.nz . You DO NOT need to transfer your domain to your website developer, in order for it to work with your website/email.
