I will raise that with my Web Hosting company as the domain name is registered with them so I guess that the redirection of expired domains is down to them. Liquid Web is a very good company so what you say does surprise me!

It was redirecting every logon to a variety of advertising sites. Many were advertising online porn games. Each logon obtained a different result. ( wish I had taken screen shots )

Edit: by logon I mean entering the FTU web address.

If you have any doubts, maybe Henry can confirm what i'm saying but his experience was several hours earlier. He does however mention being redirected to advertising sites.

No, I don't doubt you - so I will bring this to their attention.

Still waiting for Virgin DNS to catch up!

It wasn't directing to 'user' usual sites, was it?

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

I know the site is back as I can connect via mobile data connection or using a VPN connection, but my landline Internet (Virgin Broadband) via the default ISP DNS is still not able to connect some 8 hours on

Seems the advice is that it can take up to 72 hours for complete propagation to be completed globally.

It was OK when I comment 2 hours ago too. I was just suggesting advertising was based on user's usual browsing, normally.

Re: Four Thirds User - currently being operated on!

Well it's not working properly for me. I can't find any way to log in! I've tried refreshing the page in case it was a cache issue but to no avail I'm afraid.

Really sorry, just give it some more time. Are you on Virgin Broadband by any chance?
