    I just went to http://www.rosstraining.com/ and it looks like he just lost the domain. Happened to a friend of mine once. Domain scavengers buy up any domain that isn't renewed in case it is worth something. They even look at domain lookup logs and buy domains people are interested in registering before they register them.

    He'll probably have to pay thousands of dollars to get it back.

    Sucks... doh.

    Yeah, I just tried rosstraining and it went to some bullshit site. Rossboxing is still going to the right place, though.

    One of the DJ's here in Dallas just bought the domain:

    www.tonyromo.com

    Kind of comical, but I reckon you can make a shitload of money on this type of E-al Estate.

    A personal visit from Ross to 'persuade' the domain-stealer...


    But I can still access the site using both domain names.

    If some people can access the site does that mean the domain is not stolen?

    This is sad...I was just about to order a beanie lol.

    It means your DNS server hasn't updated.

    Just means the domain servers haven't all "caught up" to tell everyone (propigate) that rosstraining.com is pointed to a new IP.

    sonsabitches. looks like Globat, LLC. in Cali is squatting on it.

    man, that just ain't right.

    this is why you need to get that shit from places like godaddy.com, the protected domain where they will hold it fo ra year if you fail to renew, which gives you the first shot at it.

    Weird. I just tried RossTraining again (on a computer that had previously given me the crap site) and this time it worked.

    I wonder if this means the problem's over. If so, i wonder if some persuasion was involved.
