Sitemeter, the ubiquitous traffic tracking service used by many blogs (including TaxProf Blog and the Law Professor Blogs Network), went down yesterday. Disenchanted Tech and Frog Blog reported yesterday that Sitemeter may have neglected to reregister the sitemeter.com domain:
Normally when domains expire they go into a holding pattern for a while before they’re finally released and available to be registered again however it looks like someone swooped in and snapped it up straight away. This could get messy.
Disenchanted Tech reports today that Sitemeter.com Is Back (Nearly):
As of this morning, sitemeter’s whois information is back to what it should be. So it looks like they were lucky and got their domain name back quickly.
