Oops! Dropped off the ‘net for a while…

No sooner had I blogged about the smooth transfer of my domain name to a new registration agent when my website dropped off the ‘net for a day or so. I had naively thought that, if I left the domain using the old name servers for a while, everything would work as it had done previously until I was ready to launch the new site – I hadn’t reckoned on my old hosting provider removing their DNS entries for the domain, leaving all my visitors with HTTP status code 404 – not found.

As soon as I noticed, I uploaded the old site to my new server and updated the name server records for the domain but, for the time it took to propagate that update, www.markwilson.co.uk was effectively offline.

Sorry. My mistake.
