anyone else having problems the last two days accessing the site?
big problems - not been able to get on at all
I was here, all alone. It was quite nice.
Yep couldn't get access yesterday or this morning
same here didnt know what to do tryed ringing a help line but child line said they couldnt help me
Did they forget to pay the domain
I know, the site was a big fail for the last day or so! I had the shakes, and didn't know what to do with my spare (work) time!
glad it wasnt only me lol dont know wa we would have done if it lasted longer
Yes someone forgot to renew the domain, so went into redemption, then DNS had to propagate.
'They forgot to put the 50p's in the meter'
id donate the 50p lol lol sure it costs a bit more tho
anyway welcome back!!!!
Its not a case of not affording, it isnt the hosting either just the domain name itself wasnt paid for, so no routing of traffic was possible as DNS had dropped of due to no renewal, tbh renewal of domain is fairly cheap
Lol, I couldn't get on - I thought my laptop was virus'd! Welcome back ASN!
If it was only the DNS server then you can type the IP address in manually - IP 188.8.131.52. I've saved it now.
Letting the domain expire...was that not a little risky incase someone came along and stole it? Schoolboy error, lol!
Glad it's back though
Yep, someone could have bought it and charged ££££££ to get it back
Apparently the domain name is worth $16,728 USD
it dosn't work like that. It would have to be idle for more than 24 hours!
I bet it was close to 24hours though!!! Still seems risky doesn't it, letting it expire?
I had such a good idea for a thread yesterday. Now I can't remember what it was.
Now therein lies the problem...a missed Aythree thread is a severe blow! I was on holiday last week, and was wondering what random threads you were cooking up.
Actually it also doesnt work like that either, it would not have gone to someone else for a fair while tbh, it protects the current renter as such with time periods incase say they've been hospitalised, lost internet connection etc etc, when it expires it will go into redemption for 30 days, after redemption its usually stuck up for auction by the registrar who usually have paid the fees upfront on some domains, registrar dependent tbh as mine has done before or they stick it back into the domain for purchase which tbh takes a long time anyway as none of the processes are immediate.
Knowing you, it'll crop up any minute.
Well thanks to the site owner for getting AS.net back up and running, such a thankless task I'd imagine....
I say thanks to the site owner for sorting this out while he was on holiday
Ooohhh was getting worried yesterday! Had to go to bed early as there was nothing to do....... haa haa Welcome back ASN! (Sheesh what a sad lot we are!!!!lol)
Bet Watty didn't mind....
Man, yesterday was such a boring day at work!!
Welcome back ASN...
