    We've had a problem with transferring the domain name over to the new owner. Unfortunately during this transfer the DNS record was corrupted, meaning that UKDivers.com is temporarily unavailable until the original domain registrar can get it's act together. This will probably take a day or three for them to sort things out...

    In the meantime the forum is also available on UKDivers.EU. Log in in the normal manner.

    The good news is the domain's back in our control. A massive round of applause goes to PeterT for dealing with the registrar :)

    We'll wait until tomorrow and try again.

    The site is available on both UKDivers.com and UKDivers.EU. Once the transfer's completed we'll go back to the .com domain.

    Thanks again Peter.

    Try this:
    1. On your local machine, open a command prompt.
    2. Within the prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns.

    Ta. That appears to have worked.

    Sent from my work PC because I didn't have any reason to be working...

    Just to let you know that we're waiting for the domain to transfer again. Hopefully there'll be nothing to see here...

    Maybe that was a bad sentence to close with!
