Someone forgot to renew Halfords.com...

20 January 2011

The IT team at Halfords have possibly been devoting too much of their time doing things that they shouldn’t have been doing with their computers lately. How else would you explain this…?

Yes, that was what visitors to Halfords.com would have seen if they’d surfed their way over to it earlier today. Seemingly someone had forgotten to renew the domain and a holding page featuring links to other car-type sites was all that was visible instead.

The site is back up and running now, and Halfords have officially put the error down to “a temporary administrative issue in our domain name renewal process”. Stop dicking around on RedTube and do your job properly is what we say to that.

    Ah Redtube! I'd forgotten about them, thanks for the reminder - another site to while away boredom. ;)
