Sony Forgets To Pay For Domain, Hilarity Ensues

First time accepted submitter Dragoness Eclectic writes Early Tuesday, gamers woke up to find out that they couldn’t log in to any Sony Online Entertainment games–no Everquest, no Planetside 2, none of them. Oddly, the forums where company reps might have posted some explanation weren’t reachable, either. A bit of journalistic investigation by EQ2Wire came across the explanation: SOE forgot to renew the domain registration on SonyOnline.net, the hidden domain that holds all their nameservers. After 7 weeks of non-payment post-expiration, NetworkSolutions reclaimed the domain, sending all access to Sony’s games into an internet black hole. Sony has since paid up. SOE’s president, John Smedley, has admitted that the expiration notices were being sent to an “unread email” address.
