ONCE BILLION DOLLAR MUSIC SITE MP3.COM STOPPED DEAD BY A $35 WEB RENEWAL FEE

My good friend, David Blumberg of
www.TopTempo.com and the Top
Ranked Artist Promoter for the Mp3.com website called me and was unusually excited...

"MP3.com has had a Domain shutdown!" I went to my artist site URL and was greeted with one of the infamous VeriSign redirects instead of my music site, complete with the dreaded message, "We didn't find: "artists.mp3s.com" There is no Web site at this address."

MP3S.com?

Further investigation showed that MP3.com was almost entirely
broken. While the front page (mp3.com) was still there, any
link that went to their MP3S.com "sub-domain" was non functional. That meant the music charts and ALL streaming music services were down! A problem affecting literally thousands of music artists who use MP3.com as their Web presence.

A quick check of the domain whois database showed the root cause of the problem... MP3.com had mistakenly allowed their MP3S.com
sub-domain to expire on September 23rd and had not yet renewed!

A multi-million dollar web presence stopped dead over a $35
renewal fee.

As an artist being directly affected by this breakdown my next
actions were clear. I picked up the phone and called Network
Solutions customer support. Within minutes I used my own credit card to purchase a one year renewal for the MP3S.com domain.

So now I wait along with thousands of other artists for the switch to flip and turn us all back on; a process that can take 24 to 48 hours as the new routing instructions propagate across the Web. But as I wait I smile, thinking about how the Net's "Premiere Music Streaming Service" had to be rescued by... me!
