Just when things couldn't get any worse - the www.ukgateway.net domain and
mail servers have disappeared. The DNS entries have gone and the service has
disappeared from the net!

Status: redemptionperiod.

REDEMPTIONPERIOD: The registry sets this status when a registrar [in this
case ASCIO TECHNOLOGIES, INC., which is Tiscali's registrar] requests that
the domain name be deleted from the registry and the domain has been
registered for more than 5 calendar days (if the delete request is received
within 5 days of initial domain registration it will instead be deleted
immediately). The domain will not be included in the zone. The domain can
not be modified or purged; it can only be restored. Any other registrar
requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The
domain will be held in this status for a maximum of 30 calendar days.


Looks like TalkTalk is again achieving new standards in customer
satisfaction.

Amazing. Some posters on the Talk Talk "help" forums have been told by
technical support to check their routers for problems!!!!

So essentially the whole domain has been taken out of circulation without
warning despite serving thousands of people who have had ukgateway.net
accounts for nearly 15 years.

This should serve as a warning that these charlatans are ****ing useless and
clueless.

Amazingly it isn't even possible to get an answer on their premium rate
"support" line.

I've sent the following news tip to The Register's News Editor, in the
(probably vain) hope that a spot of publicity might persuade TalkTalk to
restore the domain as quickly as is humanly possible and render them a
little more cautious in futu

--------------------

Suddenly (as of yesterday, I believe) every individual and business using a
$whatever.ukgateway.net domain and e-mail address has a problem: the
ukgateway.net domain has been deregistered--presumably by mistake--by
Tiscali/TalkTalk.

I became aware of this via the newsgroup uk.telecom.broadband... I can find
nothing about it on the web but a google groups search shows several
discussions in the TalkTalk forums. It would appear that TalkTalk support
have switched from telling users to check their modems/routers to agreeing
that there is a problem that will, they say, take a day or two to fix.

Seems to have done the trick.

The DNS records are back - for now. The expiration date is 8 November. I
wonder if Talk Talk will remember to re-register the domain.

Is that how fast their users can migrate out??
