Just went to check on Joejoe this morning, and it seems someone forgot to renew their domain:


http://joejoe.org

Still surprised at how such a relatively popular site can forget something so important and simple as to renew a domain > <


Edit: Seems that the domain is still registered to them through Contrast Hosting after checking the Whois? :/

You reckon there is any chance they can get their site back if they repay now?

Once someone takes the domain, there is almost no chance of getting it back. If there was dont you think peoplw would steal Microsoft and make it into a virus hive? or Google? :P

There is usually a 30 day holding period where the owner can renew after it goes offline without risk of losing the domain. You'll probably find it back online in no time.

Someone else from the public can't buy it for around 45 days after expiry to avoid problems like theft of domains.

Does seem to be back now. Still would have thought it's a pretty big mistake to have. I renew my stuff at least 2 weeks ahead, preferably a month :/

Yeah.

I didn't renew my domain once and I lost it for around six months and then ended up buying it for around $80. I was pretty pissed off.
