Site problems

The site has had some DNS problems over the past few days and disappeared from the web for a while. This post explains what happened, if you are interested.

The domain name galilean-library.org was registered at the same time as the hosting (part of a package). When the site was moved to better hosting, the old service was cancelled but the domain retained and renewed; in fact, the domain was renewed until December 2011. However, it turns out that the company put the cancelled hosting "on ice", so to speak, and finally ended the package formally yesterday. The old host has a policy, apparently, of not renewing domains unless hosting is purchased, so they cancelled the domain without warning. In order to renew it, they required me to pay roughly 7 times the usual rate and then transfer it elsewhere, which process is currently underway. I therefore paid for the domain until December 2011 (lost), the absurd rate to renew it and now have to pay again to transfer it. Since no warning was given, there was no way to stop the domain disappearing and taking the site with it. However, the fees are paid and the end result is that hopefully the domain will now be fine for another year.
