I learned yesterday that the domain for this blog was misdirected and attempts to reach it ended up on some random landing page with popup ads.
I contacted HostGator, which hosts this blog as well as the Underdisclosed.com blog and my law firm site, DougBermanLaw.com. The domain was directed to the wrong HostGator server. There is no indication of why, how or when this happened since the site was working fine through last week.
In addition, the DougBermanLaw.com site was down due to a glitch on the HostGator side involving the site builder tools.
Anyway, its fixed now. HostGator customer service did a great job in getting them back up and running.
In the Freelance Economy, you never know what kind of problems you’ll face day-to-day, including IT issues. Get a good service provider.
