Someday I hope to be able to write good thread titles. Today is not that day. Anyway, one day last week all of the sudden my company’s corporate site and our intranet web addresses weren’t working. Entering either web address would take you to a weird site that used our company name, but wasn’t our site(s). The corporate website and the intranet are managed by different companies, but both sites “pointed” to the same wrong website. Both have our domain name in the address.
I thought that perhaps the (totally worthless) guy who set up our email and our domain had let our domain name expire and it was snapped up by somebody else. I told my boss to try to get ahold of our guy (who never responded AFAIK), bossman sends an email or two, and suddenly our sites come back up.
I never did find out what the hell happened. Was my guess correct?
