artbell.com gone

Noticed this the other day - http://www.artbell.com/ end of an era.

Also, I have been checking to see if the domain comes up for registration :)

artbell.com UPDATE

Post by Riddick » 04-25-2020 10:31 PM

Well, less than a week after I posted that link, the status has changed from 'Auction' to "Wish List" - Any case & however it gone done? It looks like the domain's back in the hands of Art Bell's heirs. Not all TOO surprising I'd say!

I could be wrong but my guess is, with the financial heft he left them, little to no doubt Airyn pulled out all the stops & laid out whatever green was needed to keep it in the family??

Appears as if the bot block's off so the Archive's back online also. SWEEEET!! ImageImageImage
