I had a call from a potential client yesterday through a referral from a friend. She had a website designed a few years ago to sell her husbands art, unfortunately the local company that did it for her have since went bust and she hasnt been able to contact anyone she dealt with. They have all dissappeared, and so has her website. She wants me to redesign the site for her, but most importantly under the same domain as it is on all of her shops carrier bags and all other promo material. The problem obviously is that I have no idea where I would go to retrieve the details for the domain. I did the WHOIS search and got this: Registrar: DIRECTI INTERNET SOLUTIONS PVT. LTD. D/B/A PUBLICDOMAINREGISTRY.COM Whois Server: whois.PublicDomainRegistry.com Referral URL: Public Domain Registry | Home Name Server: NS1.DSREDIRECTION.COM Name Server: NS2.DSREDIRECTION.COM Status: ok Updated Date: 31-may-2009 Creation Date: 24-jan-2009 Expiration Date: 24-jan-2011 It looks to me like it was re-registered this January. The referral URL says the domain isn't available. Not sure where to go now. Has anyone dealt with a similar issue, or have any suggestions how I could go about recovering the domain for my client. I dont think telling her to get brand new promo materials, shop singage and carriers is going to go down too well!
