Wild About Britain site.

Although the Wild About Britain site hasn't been working properly for a couple of years, I've been able to access it. I'm now getting a page that states "This Account has been suspended. Contact your hosting provider for more information."

Does any other WAB user get this or know why the account has been suspended?

Yes Jim, I get the same result as you now. I can only assume the site owner failed to keep up the payments to the hosting company or his domain registration expired. The site probably remained accessible until the funding expired.

Edit: Looking at the Domain Information on Whois it appears the site's domain registration expiry date was revised from 9th April 2019 to the 18th May 2018, with lots of prohibited status applied. This might indicate the site owner was in some sort of dispute with the domain provider or registrar and the site has now been taken down.

Which site ? Did you click the link in the thread as that refers to the Whois site not WAB. It looks like Wildaboutbritain is registered under .com and .co.uk with different registrars, but both return the same "Suspended" message when I try.
