What do “Domain Name Status Codes” mean?

You might have diffuculty understanding domain name status codes because there are quite a lot of codes. Look at the list and figure.

  • ACTIVE: A domain can only be modified by the domain registrar.
  • REGISTRY-LOCK: The domain can not be modified or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the REGISTRY-LOCK status for the registrar to modify the domain.
  • REGISTRAR-LOCK: The domain can not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-LOCK status to modify the domain.
  • REGISTRY-HOLD: The domain can not be modified or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the REGISTRY-HOLD status for the registrar to modify the domain.
  • REGISTRAR-HOLD: The domain can not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-HOLD status to modify the domain.
  • REDEMPTIONPERIOD: The registry sets this status when a registrar requests that the domain name be deleted from the registry and the domain has been registered for more than 5 calendar days (if the delete request is received within 5 days of initial domain registration it will instead be deleted immediately). The domain will not be included in the zone. The domain can not be modified or purged; it can only be restored. Any other registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be held in this status for a maximum of 30 calendar days.
  • PENDINGRESTORE: The registry sets this status after a registrar requests restoration of a domain that is in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain will be included in the zone. Registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be held in this status while the registry waits for the registrar to provide required restoration documentation. If the registrar fails to provide documentation to the registry within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request, the domain will revert to REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain status will be set to ACTIVE only if the registrar provides documentation to the registry within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request.
  • PENDINGDELETE: The registry sets this status after a domain has been set in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status and the domain has not been restored by the registrar. The domain will not be included in the zone. Once in this status all registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The domain will be purged from the registry database after being in this status for 5 calendar days.

How to install Android applications to SD card directly?

If you have an Android phone, You see that every applications that you download from Adroid Market install Internal Memory automatically. If your Internal Memory is small, this situation is very big problem for you. Probably you look for a solution to install applications External Memory (SD Card) directly.

There are a lot of applications that claim to fix this issue. I have tried almost 10 applications but none of them succeed. Then, I found another way to do that. Here is:

  1. Download & Install Android SDK.
  2. Open Commant Prompt (Start > Run > cmd).
  3. Go to this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
  4. Connect your cellphone to the computer via USB.
  5. Install your cellphone application like HTC Sync for HTC cellphones.
  6. Activate “USB debugging” on the phone (Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> Check USB Debugging)
  7. Go back to Command Prompt. Try this command: adb devices. You will see attached cellhphones.
  8. Then run this command: adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2
  9. That’s all. After that time, your applications will be installing your external memory.

How to connect to TEMS Investigation 13.1 using HTC smartphone?

To collect WCMDA or LTE signal logs you could use a scanner or data cards. There is another way to do that: using smartphone. It is easy and feature-filled.

Firstly, we have these tools for this work:

  • TEMS Investigation 13.1 on Windows 7
  • HTC Vivid (PH39100)
  • USB cable

I will tell you how you can do that step by step. Please read whole article before practising that.

Here we go:

  1. Plug in USB cable to the computer and HTC.
  2. On HTC, open “HTC SSD Test“. You must enable these features on HTC:
    • Control Diag Port
    • Control Modem
    • Control RmNet
      HTC SSD Test Tool

  3. Open “Device Manager“. Did you see these HTC drivers? If you did, continue with Step 3. If you didn’t, try unplug/plug, restart, reinstall drivers etc. It is a regular driver installation problem (If your manufacturer gives you special drivers, don’t forget to use them). I suggest that a program for this work: USBDeview. You can easily install/uninstall your USB devices with using that program.
    • HTC USB Modem
    • HTC Ethernet Adapter – 9k #2
    • HTC Diagnostic Interface – 9K (COMx)
    • HTC Diagnostic Interface (COMy)

  4. Open “TEMS Investigation 13.1“. Create a new workspace or open a previous workspace.
  5. Probably It will not recognize HTC automatically. If It happens, don’t worry. You can still do that. Just you need to create a manual configuration. Click to lovely little “Start Manual UE Config” button. Then create a manual configuration as It has been shown below. You should choose device type and ports settings carefully. Read your device’s documentation for that.
