    View Camera Magazine Domain Suspended

    I have not received my September issue of View Camera Magazine so I went to their website with the intention to email and inquire as to why. I went to http://www.viewcamera.com/ and the only message on page is this domain has been suspended.

    First, am I going to the correct website?
    Second, has anyone else received their September issue?
    Lastly, I am wondering out loud if they are caught up in the financial mess.

    I did not post this to cause a flame war or incite angry people but to see if there is a real problem or not.

    It's the correct address. That's all I know.

    I got my copy today and it's on the local news stands as well. Probably just a glitch with the web site.

    My guess is they forgot to renew payment for the domain name. Not uncommon.

    A lapsed domain generally reverts to a corporate placeholder page. This would be the first time I've ever seen a 'suspended' page. Maybe someone at VC got on the wrong side of interNIC.

    From someone who gets VC I'm told he had a big announcement on an event that is tentatively happening last June.

    Maybe its something else. One wonders. I have a handful of domains through Godaddy. Godaddy does not post pages like you see here. If you want my guess. I'd guess that Globat Web Hosting (owners of the name servers) decided for whatever reasons (I can think of a few) to suspend VC's hosting. I suspect that someone at VC is scrambling to get the domain moved and that there may be an obstacle or two preventing it from happening as quickly as it does in normal cases (I can think of a couple there as well) .

    I received my magazine about 1½ weeks ago, so the latest issue appears to be out and about.
