NamePros: Back In 15 Minutes (Updated)

3

I was checking in on the important NameJet thread on NamePros this afternoon when I saw a maintenance message on the website. I visited from a couple of browsers, and I saw that the site was down and it wasn’t a browser error on my end.

I reached out to NamePros CTO Paul Buonopane, and he let me know the site will be back in about 15 minutes – potentially sooner.

I am not a regular contributor on NamePros, but I am a regular reader. I shared some advice for NameJet a couple of days ago on my blog, and I strongly urge the company to have a third party audit that is shared with the public. In a press release last night, the company “confirmed that there was suspicious activity relating to certain names being sold on NameJet,” and I think bidders and sellers deserve to know the extent of this with an audit conducted by a non-stakeholder.

Update: NamePros is back up. Here’s what I am told happened: “Logs for our new backup system took up more storage than expected, and the database system shut down to prevent data loss. We’re adding more storage space, at which point the site will be back online.”

    Sorry for the downtime! I was out for a birthday lunch with family when the alerts started going off; I assumed they were just regional issues, but of course, this was the one time it was actually a problem on our end. Fortunately, the underlying issue was minor and easily resolved.
