Synergy-Tan.com Dead?

I noticed Synergy Tan's web site has been pointing to a traffic harvester for several days at least now, and when I do a WHOIS on the domain, it appears that someone has snapped up the expired domain?

Is there something going on at Synergy Tan?

Ok, so it appears that they lost their domain and are using a new one...

Tough to lose a domain by accident you get 90 day exclusive after it expired to claim it again

Not if nobody thinks of it, and it was registered under an e-mail that nobody checks or under and employee name who no longer works there. It happened to Microsoft twice! (passport.com, which was required for hotmail authentication, in 1999 and hotmail.co.uk in 2003)

If Synergy didn't lose it by accident, it was quite possibly the worst-executed rebranding ever conducted.

Well here is the thing your website would go "down" during the 90 day period so something else happened.

WORD OF CAUTION FOR EVERYONE

If you hire someone make sure to "own" the domain. This is an extremely valuable piece of IP. We always have folks buy them.

What is highly likely in this case is someone developed their systems for them and bought the domains and everything during that process. It's just about the only way to get shutoff overnight as the owner you always have the 90 so your site goes down you really have to be off the ball.

Buy your own domain always. I recently had to negotiate ownership of a domain name for an owner they had to pay 500 plus escrow to get the rights.

In your TOS you need to have specific right to the domain or it will be assumed part of the developers IP.
