What happened to iTPlight homepage?

Shouldn't it be www.itplight.com?

Seems like they forgot to pay the rent...

And now I can't access olight's or xtarlight's websites...

And it's not just me, according to http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com :S

Looks like xtarlight and olightworld use the same registrar - xinnet.

Maybe they have some problems. Xinnet's site is available but doesn't show any news about current faults/maintenance.

It might just be a DDOS attack - I did notice that one of the HK dealers had a DDOS header on their home page - it may have been DB or BoB, can't remember. Apparently DDOS extortion is pretty common in HK/China.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

ITPLight has been down a couple of weeks now. I did look it up and it appeared they did forget to pay the rent on time. Registration date ended on 5/23/11. It does worry me a bit.

Xtarlight and Olight being down is new. Probably a DDOS attack. xtarlight is registered until 2015.

Edit: just checked Xtarlight and it is up and running.

I found something in Google cache - from May 30th, "iTP website is updating!"

And it seems like olight's site is up again? In the news section it has the "iTP website is updating!" marked with the date 2011-5-27.
