    Domain registration bill didn't get paid. Wait a week or so. They probably just forgot. Even big corporations forget sometimes. If they're not back up in a couple of weeks, try the phone.

    I would actually call them up and remind them in case they are unaware. Better for them to renew while they have the chance before a pirate snags the domain name and demands big buck for its return.

    Yep, probably deserve the courtesy of a call -- especially if they are traveling or not in a position to monitor their website regularly... On the other hand I think they had provider issues a month or so back, so may have nothing to do with WW, but the site itself...

    If that's the case, then it's almost certainly just a domain payment issue. Like the others said, give them a call and let them know. I don't know what I was thinking earlier. Need caffeine!

    I really didn't want anything, just wanted to check the specs on their engines.

    Has your site been hacked?

    When I clicked on "Products" a window popped up saying I had some type of system problem, and should call Microsoft right away. Also said to not close Chrome or there would be permanent damage.

    flycorvair.net is really the place you want to start and is more easily searchable.

    flycorvair.com is where you would go if you want to order stuff.

    Found out somebody had tried hacking into our web site - think it is fixed...it was sending people to a fake blue screen of death or something. Some people have no respect... Hope it is fixed. Let me know. Azaleaaviation.com
