From the information available online it would seem that the Pepitec domain is still due to expire at the end of this month.
Anyone here planning to dive in and grab the domain name if it becomes available? That way a redirect to here at least could be set up.

As already said, I will if I can. The problem is that it becomes available as part of a "drop list" from Nominet, then it's whoever is first. Since it's been a very popular/long lasting domain, it's likely to be attempted to be swiped by various domain parking companies, or shudder a PPC.

I have a "watch" with a registrar where they'll automatically attempt to register it once it becomes available to register sometime next year.

I don,t know what it cost to "Grab a domain name" but i can see sense in this site buying it. I for one would be happy to cough up a share of the cost, i think others would to

Depends on which registrar you use, but I'm currently paying $4.70pa for a .uk domain, and $9.77pa for a .com (USD).

Nameservers stopped responding today ...

Sparxy - thats a bit less than I am paying via Enom - who are you using?  And yes I'd suspect that picking up the domain when it expires is going to be a very very slim chance as the bots will be all over it.

I'm getting the impression that it's a VPS rather than shared hosting. The server IP reverses to "server.pepipoo.com" and I don't think anything else is on the IP.

Cloudflare! It's free for a load of stuff including their "Access" stuff so you can throw all your internal stuff behind a firewall but still access it, all of my sites are proxied through it, and the analytics are really useful too.

Anyone know who registered pepipoo.uk?

It would appear that pepitec.co.uk has been renewed today, expiry now in 2028

I thought you'd say that - can't use them because I can't use their nameservers ... but thanks anyway.

Back on topic ... I think we should encourage people here as it pepipoo is effectively dead even if it doesn't actually go offline.

I think Andy's comment on PePiPoo was pretty much on the money:

Quote from: andy_foster
Just an observation - keeping the site "ticking along" "as is" is relatively trivial. Migrating it to a new platform (particularly if not simply an upgraded form of the current platform), not so much.

The admins have 3 choices - let the site die, enable it to continue as is, or enable it to improve.

The site will realistically never be what it was when the self-incrimination argument was still alive and kicking (before the ECtHR fudgement in O'Halloran & Francis v the UK).

Can it be better than it currently is? Yes,
Would those of us who use the site like it to be better than it currently is? Yes
Would it involve the admins either doing the work or giving up some control? Yes.
Whose choice would that be? Theirs.

I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister.

Ditto.
There are known knowns which, had we known, we would never have wished to know. It is known that this also applies to the known unknowns. However, when one attends a hearing, Mr Rumsfeld's idea that there are also unknown unknowns fails to apply because, anyone who is in the know, knows that unknown unknowns are purely a deception otherwise known as an aleatory experience or also known as a lottery. I know that I know this to be a fact and, in this knowledge, I know that I am fully prepared to present my case but, paradoxically, in full knowledge that the unknown unknowns may well apply in view of some adjudicators' lack of knowing what they ought to know through no fault of their own.

Pepipoo still down tonight, I get an error message. Maybe the feds have stepped in?
Bus driving since 1973. My advice, if you have a PSV licence, destroy it when you get to 65 or you'll be forever in demand.
