For those independent league baseball fans who check my website Indy Leagues Graveyard, you might be wondering why there’s a domain default page there instead. (Actually I received an e-mail asking about it last week, but I just assumed it was because of the lack of updates for the past few months.) UPDATE: Now there’s a nice article about valium addiction, treatment, and withdrawal. Just the kind of information you’d go to a baseball site for!
Apparently the domain name expired without me knowing it and a company that will not be named swooped in and took it. I thought it had somehow been hijacked and I called the domain hosting company on the phone to figure out what was going on. The person explained they had tried contacting my old e-mail address, but needless to say their renewal reminders never reached me. (Sigh.) So now some non-baseball related website has the domain name I created back in 2002. No telling what they’re going to use it for.
A lesson for fellow webmasters: Make sure your contact information is current with your domain register!
So I pose this question: Is there anyone out there remotely interested in me bringing it back? Did it help fill a void that would make it worth the price of a new domain name and hosting to revive it? Drop me a line and let me know what you think or leave your comment.
