1013 Productions Website?


Selfosophist

Recommended Posts

I just happened across this today, when I used Google to research some things for mySelfosophy Institute website.

Here is the link I found:

https://www.1013productions.com/

When the page finishes loading, all it says is "Comming Soon..."

Has anyone else noticed this? Could it mean the production company is being reformed for future projects?!!!

Or could it just be another fan website? Or some other organization or company?

What do you think? Has anyone heard anything?

I have to admit, I was quite excited at first, but then quickly began to think it was something other than what it appeared to be.

But, here's to hoping!

Research gal here - I'm on the case! :jumping:

I checked this website on whois.net and the (slightly obfuscated) info is:

Registrant:

Joe Manning

xxxxxxxxxx

Rockford, Michigan xxxxx

US

Registrar: NAMESDIRECT

Domain Name: 1013PRODUCTIONS.COM

Created on: 02-NOV-03

Expires on: 02-NOV-06

Last Updated on: 24-SEP-05

Administrative, Technical Contact:

Manning, Joe jmanning14@hotmail.com

xxxxxxxxxxxx

Rockford, Michigan xxxxx

US

616-874-xxxx

Domain servers in listed order:

NS1.IPOWERWEB.NET

NS1.IPOWERDNS.COM

End of Whois Information

Note that this domain was registered in November 2003, but was updated in September this year.

I can't find any trace of that email address being used for newsgroup postings anywhere, and a search on "Joe Manning" throws up either a baseball player or a history teacher.

Another clue is on the website itself. It would be pretty reasonable for the webpage to be called "1013Productions" but the production company is actually "Ten Thirteen" so I would expect the main page to have it that way rather than the numbers (although the numbers are pretty cool the way they've been used).

Then I had a look at the page source and a couple of lines are:

<!--url's used in the movie-->

<!--text used in the movie--> (The extra characters show that these two lines are comments rather than HTML instructions.)

I had a look at ipowerweb.net who are mentioned in the whois listing and their blurb is:

IPOWERWEB, Inc., The Power Behind eBusiness ™, is the worlds leading eBusiness Website Hosting provider. Our Internet based end-to-end solutions enable small and medium sized enterprises (SME's) to build, promote, manage and profit from their online presence.

Not exactly the kind of provider I'd expect for a production company, but they'd have to use a fairly powerful provider given the number of hits such a site could potentially get. And merchandise would, I guess, be a factor.

Curiouser and curiouser.....

Well spotted, Selfo. Anybody live in Rockford, Michigan?

:notworthy:

Wow! Not that's some information gathering! Thanks for the info.

It makes me wonder if it is just a fan of the 1013 shows who is going to open his own business and is going to name it 1013 Productions (rather than Ten Thirteen Productions) as a kind of tribute...

Could be a fan. However, calling it 1013 is a bit close to unlawful, as that's how many fans refer to it, so any trading there could be misleading. It's not quite the same as, say, my website which is hosted as part of my internet connection - the use of a provider who specialises in eCommerce makes it a bit suspicious for a fan site. Having said that, it does seem cheap - at least to me - $7.95 per month is a heck of a lot less than I'm paying. But I think I'm in "super sleuth" mode at the moment!

I manage a site for a historical/genealogical society on Lunarpages which is a direct rival to the co. you looked into. Based on what I could find out about all the relatively low-cost ISPs, they all offer a hosting package in the $8/month range but for that price don't provide any real eCommerce services, e.g., secure site for credit cards, PayPal, etc. Really what they provide is a site that may be used for internet commerce as long as you either restrict the site to catalogs and use toll-free calling or mail for transactions or you install a third-party source eCommerce pkg. or link. I found out that there are a couple of big eCommerce providers that don't offer web site hosting but only give you an account link for a purchaser to click on after selecting merchandise taking them from the seller's site to the seller's account on a contract commerce transaction site page/web.

On Lunarpages, if you want their secure eCommerce features active so that a third party service isn't involved, you have to pay about 4 times as much per month.

LOL! I did a Whois check on this site before I read further down the topic and learnt Libby had done it already! I should have known since she rocks! Ahem. Anyway, I go for the fan site option too. I just think it never appeared from 2003.

I'm with you, Graham. The "1013" vs. "Ten Thirteen" thing was a dead giveaway.

I'm moving towards thinking that it's cybersquatting. A friend of mine who knows more about these things than I do has mentioned that 1013.com and TenThirteen.com are domains owned by people who have

nothing to do with the company. They both have registrants as shown by whois.net but only TenThirteen.com is accessible. Just one of those shockwave-flash things - if you check it out, move your cursor around the screen!

SouthernCelt: Thanks for the explanation. Although I have to say that I'm glad my two choices of internet connection were mostly made by my son - that saved me from doing the research that you had to do. There's research and there's research, and I prefer the kind that doesn't tax my brain too much. :fool:
