phpBB.it domain name cancelled

Postby Juanm » Wednesday May 4th, 2011 17h21:48

Hi,
The domain "phpBB.it" expired on February 18th, 2011, and then entered in the so called redemption period. On March 3rd 2011 the domain name was taken over by Solodom.ch, led by Alessandro Cassinari, a professional domain hunter. This fact had some immediate consequences: on phpBB.com the translation managers switched the italian support site to a more active community (phpbbitalia.net), on it.wikipedia the domain name was replaced on sight by a guest.

The old board is still reachable under tech hosting directory tree. It's still active (IE: you can login, post, reply, reset your password, send PMs and upload avatars), but there's no automatic login and no CMS page (apart the homepage) is available at the moment, although they should still be present in the database.

According to rumors recently collected on phpbbitalia.net, the domain hasn't been bought so far and there may be an auction during 2011 summer. According to a rough estimate calculated on pastebin.com domain related service, the estimated value shouldn't be so cheap.

I'm removing phpbb.it link from homepage 'cause the probability that such domain might return up and kicking in a short timeframe is definitely remote
