Thank you very much Asheesh!
"Individual results may vary" - :-) ... glad you got it to work out not
only well, but *exceptionally* well (I also notice the expirations now
are not 2015-07-02, nor 2016-07-02, but 2017-07-02!  :-)

Even Network Solutions / Web.com probably deserves a bit of a thank you
in this particular instance (though perhaps quietly, depending how
"above and beyond" they went in this case).

I'm sure some of us will be curious to hear bit more of the details ...
in person sometime.

And if all's now well (or "good enough" for now), we should sit quietly and
not muck with it until after the Status: renewPeriod is safely past.
Most notably also, don't want to muck with data in manner that triggers
additional lock-in timers.
