Sony forgets to pay for its domain name

Written by Nick Farrell



Sonyonline.net shut down

It appears that Sony made a mistake of forgetting to pay for the domain name of Sonyonline.net and its nameservers all reverted back to NetworkSolutions.

While the SonyOnline.net name was not publicly used, it was used for the nameservers ns2.sonyonline.net, ns4.sonyonline.net, ns6.sonyonline.net which route users to SOE’s websites and forums, as well as connecting to its games. What seems happened is that expiration notices from NetworkSolutions have been going to an unread e-mail address at SOE for the last few weeks. The expiration for SonyOnline.net was set for 26-may-2014 and it seems Network Solutions gave them some serious grace period of seven weeks.

For some time SOE.com, EverQuest2.com, and other SOE websites all seem to be loading “domain parked” pages full of advertisements now. EverQuest Next and Landmark Community Manager Colette “Dexella” Murphy released a statement at 5.30 am tweeted everything was sorted but there might be a few DNS problems for 24 hours.
