Been trying to get in for the past couple of days, and the site is down....so going in directly to the message boards. Anybody know what's going on?

Looks like the domain name expired while we were out of town for the holiday, working on it now.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Tony.

Someone -- NOT us -- snagged the domain, so I'm working on other options. Stay tuned for the new URL.

Contrary to your assumption, your domain (beachboysfanclub.com) has NOT been snagged by somebody else. It did indeed expire on May 25, but it can still be renewed.

According to ICANN (which governs such things):

"You should renew your domain name through the registrar (or reseller) that provided your domain name registration services. Once your domain has expired, it will be in Auto-Renew Grace Period (for 0-45 days), followed by a 30-day Redemption Grace Period."

Call your registrar. You may have to pay a redemption fee in addition to the domain name's renewal fee, but you can easily get the domain during the next several weeks.

Thanks for the info. I was going by what WHOIS reported, but I'll follow up on that when offices open tomorrow.

The ongoing problem has been that the original name owner vanished, and we've been unable to transfer it to the club.

Tour dates page:
