Domain Registration Site Down

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Our domain registration site is currently down which means any new registrations and domain administration is not possible until the problem has been resolved. Unfortunately this issue is beyond our control as the problem is with our domain resellers system where the domains website is hosted. They are aware of the problem and are currently working to resolve the issue. We hope they will have the service running again soon.
