Domain Change Complete

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain Corp.

Hello Rainers,

We successfully converted the ActiveRain website back to our original website domain last night.  The change-over required approximately 1.5 hours of downtime for the site.

The domain change is part of a transition project to support the purchase of ActiveRain by Ben Kinney

You don't need to make changes to any existing links to their content that they have placed online. The system will automatically redirect those links to the right page.

While We Were Tinkering...

As part of this release, we also worked in the following updates:

  • We fixed a bug that was preventing our members from upgrading to a paid RainMaker account if they cancelled their RainMaker status at any time in the past.
  • Links in the "Get to Know Me" section on the profile page were breaking. Thank you Craig Daniels .
  • We updated the Comment section on our blog posts so images are automatically adjusted down to a width that fits that area.

What To Expect This Week

From June 23-30, we’ll have a few more periods of downtime on the site as our engineers move all of the technology over to its future new home. We’ll do our best to alert members to any outages.

We don't anticipate any issues relating to links, content and SEO.

Thanks for your patience while we work through these changes.

So pleased that we are back to an independent Activerain family. I felt we were losing our identity under Trulia. It just didn't seem to have the same vibe?

Great News,

I am looking forward to Active rain again and hoping for greater things now that it has been bought by Ben Kinney and his posse, (lol).

Now I can come upgrade my account again, hope there are new things in place for Active Rain

Glad to have it back.  BTW, is it just a coincidence that about the time it was announced that Ben Kinney was acquiring ActiveRain that I received emails from his staff regarding other products/services?

I used to love being in the "Rain", but dropped out for quite a while.  I was going through transitions and so was this site. I just recommitted and plan to love the "Rain" again.

I have stayed away from actually dancing in the rain other than an occasional post for months as I lost interest after the merger and the loss of Bob Stewart.  With these changes I like many will return.
