Domain registration expired, but hosting company not responding to emails!
I have a domain name registered for a local charity. We found that dns records dropped off the internet a few weeks ago.
No contact from the hosting company, but it transpired our two yearly hosting fee was due.
This was duly paid online, and a email sent to support requesting re-enabling the dns records.
I have yet to hear from them!
unfortunaly nslookup shows that the domain name is registered with fasthosts, on behalf of the company I pay, no mention of our details, so I suspect I can`t just contact nominet and move the domain.
Of course all our official email addresses etc run via the domain, so it is very difficult to prove who we are to nominet etc...
If the hosting company have gone bust (which is my suspiscion), how long will it take for fasthosts to release the domain so I can re-register it with someone else?
