Demise of who do you think you are magazine?

Post by Gowermick » 11 Apr 2018 20:38

I’ve used the “who do you think you are” forum for some years, but trying to log in today, I’m told the site no longer exists!
Anyone else experiencing this?

The site is down for me but it's always been a bit flakey every so often - over Easter it hit too many SQL somethings (to be technical about it ;) ) and then wouldn't work. We wait with bated breath....

And I hope there was nothing significant about the above being my 666th post!

Adrian,
I think this is diferent from normal, as my ISP is telling me that the webaddress is not recognised. If it was normal maintenance or the like, I’d have expected a ‘web address not responding’ type of message, and not a ‘web address does not exist’ message.
I wonder if they forgot to renew their domain name registration :D

There was a new post on their FaceBook page in the last day, and no mention if any problems. You get lots of warnings before DNS expires, I suspect this is a technical issue somewhere

Tried the mobile site just now m.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com seems to be working but some links are broken? Maybe a server issue.☹

They did put a few updates on their twitter feed - these things happen all the time!
