Find Madeleine Website Whooshed .......?

Post by MayMuse on Tue May 16, 2017 1:25 am

10/05/2007 - 10/05/2017

Official Find Madeleine website has been whooshed or forgotten? 

It was apparently not renewed until a day after and only for a year, but still fails to upload?

Could the recent cyber attack be to blame? Unlikely, but feasible.

Is it linked with a hospital computer or a GP surgery computer I wonder?

Wasn't the website built by a pupil of Philomena McCann? I doubt it would be linked to a hospital/ GP surgery although to be fair I haven't a clue about computers/website building etc.  The Facebook page is still there, it's just the web page that's gone.

Just my tongue in cheek melisande. The fund did have the address of the Glenfields Hospital on it though.

Yes and when I wrote to Glenfield Hospital about it this was their response:

Oh no, Kate & Gerry will have to take time away from their endless media campaign searching for Madeleine to search for their website.
This could have a dramatic impact on the Fund's official merch sales too big grin

That's bizarre. I recall Leicestershire Police having a link to their website too. It really is extraordinary.

Doesn't work for me & for many over on twitter apparently... That link just goes to a white page as it did yesterday? 

Shop online though...http://shop.findmadeleine.com

And FB. 

Interestingly they never renewed the trademark in the USA either?


Even cached page is blank ?

I was thinking that the website could just be getting updated especially as they are still showing the shop page (priorities hmm) but the non renewal of the trademark is a puzzle.  I did read that not that long ago but it escaped my memory.   Maybe they decided to not renew it after the stick that Victoria Beckham got for trademarking her daughter. emo3

Hi melisandeSaveSave

The UK trademark was renewed so not clear why only the US one not?

Updating web pages do not normally show blank page, renewal not done until the 11th May and still 5 days later nothing. 
Can't see the cyber fiasco affecting as shop is still open and for a page to still remain usually it means that other pages have been taken offline? 

No mention on FB site informing of any maintenance of main website.

I've just been on Twitter and there is a tweet from mccanncasetweets where she says she phoned a rep from go daddy who told her that it hasn't been renewed . She asked about 2018 and he said that was them taking it. I haven't a clue what 'taking it' means. I don't tweet on Twitter or I would have asked lol

Yes I'm quite sure.  I don't invent things just for the hell of it!

This kind of thing has happened many times in the past, where some are able to access a link whilst others can't.  I don't profess to know why this is but rest assured the official Find Madeleine site is accessible to me - not that I've any reason to get excited about it.

It was renewed on the 11th May as per my first post on thread. 10yrs  originally from 2007 to 2017. One year timespan renewed until May 2018, normally there would be a grace period for the owner to renew. Go Daddy state they have "taken" it, means they have renewed so they own it, which is rather fast in my opinion.

It is bizarre but in the grand scheme of things, with all that has been going on in the last few weeks, this is the least of their problems.

It is, I still can't access it but if Go Daddy have held it until owner pays that could explain maybe, then once paid in full will show online...not sure? Yes, it is obvious that there has been some "bizarre" activities.

Well it looks like they still have it then.  If some are seeing the site and others aren't as Verdi has said then it must just be a glitch in the system. 

ETA. Looks like it is all sorted now.

It was down for quite some time and the screenshots show Go Daddy renewed next day... Maybe simply forgotten? A moment in time lapse? SaveSave
