Registry sites with contact information have gone dark.
[Update: I heard back from the court-appointed administrator. The problem has been fixed.]
The registry websites for top level domain names that were formerly owned by Famous Four Media are all down.
Famous Four Media’s domains are now part of a portfolio owned by Global Registry Services (GRS) Ltd after some sort of investor revolt, as outlined at Domain Incite. GRS is being managed by a court-appointed administrator who works at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
With a low-price strategy, these domains have over 4 million domains second level domains. .Loan has 2.2 million domains in the zone file. Other top domains include .win, .men and .stream.
But for about the past week, DNW readers report they have been unable to visit any of the nic.TLD sites such as nic.loan. These sites include abuse contacts for the domains.
I have reached out to the court-appointed administrator for comment.
