    Default What has happened to the Van Halen News Desk

    Not sure if this has been brought up before but .....

    I'm pretty sure I was on the site yesterday and all was okay.

    Today I get some other crappy site.

    Has anyone else had the same problem????

    Thanks

    I think someone else has purchased the domain (I think that's the terminology)?????

    You must have to re-purchase it after a certain period????

    According to Whois, the domain expires in January 2009. Somebody has locked it up for the next year.

    The page I'm getting now or something just like it shows up every time I mis type a web address. They are selling website addresses it looks like. Anyone who is still seeing the vhnd website must still have the page in thier cookies. I do not know what cookies are, other than tasty snakes, but I know they save website shit somehow, cause I've seen this happen to another site

    Yup. Everyone still getting the site needs to clean out their browser cache. I did, and viola: The site was gone...

    Yep, the site is down. Looks like they need to restore the site to the server.
    Their host may have upgraded the server and probably didn't restore all of the website files.

    I'm guessing that VHND.com hasn't died. It's just probably moving servers or something like that.

    Their domain name is still active.

    Any cookie I've eaten has not had snakes in them, Conversely, I have eaten snake. Didn't taste like a cookie.

    Looking at the top right of the page, it's a Network Solutions default page and it states that the domain "expired on 1/28/08 and is pending renewal or deletion."

    If you're getting a "good through 1/09" in the Whois, the vhnd people must have renewed for a year, but it hasn't updated yet. If it just expired on 1/28, they won't usually be re-sold to someone else in such a short amount of time.

    As far as I know, Jeff @ VH Store.com owns the thing right now. He's prolly so damn busy as usual that the renewal snuck up on him...LOL!

    He'll have it back up shortly, I bet...
