Anyone out there know what happened to www.vanagonauts.com? Looks like it has disappeared from the interwebs which is disappointing since there was also plenty of good information there regarding Vanagons.

I wondered that last week, sites go down but its still down?!

That's sad, they had a lot of good information.

Hopefully it will be back soon.

Thanks for the link. I'll send an email to the address on the home page and see if anyone replies about the status of the site.

the domain registry expires in November, the domain is hosted by gaslightmedia, and the IP (66.129.34.133) does not resolve.

i could IT stuff it some more, but it appears the host has pulled the plug.

Does anyone know the owner/have info from WHOIS or anything like that? If it is a question of hosting costs I would be willing to shell out a few bucks to keep a resource like that around, I'm sure I am not the only one...

I often save some sites just to be sure information does not get lost. I generally don't publicly offer these sites since there is some rights of the author concerned. Still... Here are the files of Vanagonauts website;
