VeloBase.com down or gone?

I get a strange message when I try to get to VeloBase, are they gone? I certainly hope not. Tried different computers to make sure it was not me.

Hasn't worked for me for aprx. 5 days. I wonder if the difference is that @BrianHemp has an account there, and is probably rigged to remain logged in between visits.

A quick check shows that the domain registration is current. Checking the DNS "A" record and pinging the site shows DNS is working and the server hosting the site is up.

I haven't used nmap so I don't have any more detailed information.

"An unhandled exception"

Sounds like a simple crash.

Hopefully there are good backups of the data.

Looking into it! Hopefully it's just a server glitch that my hosting service needs to resolve. I have been looking to move hosting service, this might just be the push I needed.
