    Eskimo North / eskimo.com

    Does anybody know what happened to Eskimo Nortth (eskimo.com)?

    It seems to have dropped out of cyberspace.

    You might want to look into how to "make other arrangements."

    I do not think there are any "technical" problems...

    It was my "make other arrangements" ISP.

    I've been searching the web since yesterday trying to find out what happened to eskimo.com. I'm glad someone here is asking about it.

    Their domain name doesn't seem to be associated with an IP address anymore!? And they are NOT answering their phones (both 206 and 800 numbers)!?

    Either something catastrophic happened to them or they went out of business without any forewarning.

    Oh man... I assumed they were just dealing with another denial-of-service attack, but the part about their phones also being out makes me wonder if my 15 year run with them has come to an end

    My feeling is that if your domain name is no longer associated with your IP in the DNS it is likely not a server nor power failure...

    Network outages are not secret either...

    So...

    I'm pretty sure they've gone belly up. Comcast no longer has a DNS entry for them, and their phone numbers don't work.

    Which really annoys me, since I paid up for another year just a few days ago.

    Oh, well -- after years of having the same Eskimo email address, my mail was about 95% spam anyway.

    Time to move on.

    That's my feeling too. I think they went out of business. I had signed up on a 5 year subscription and had a few more years left on it.

    You would think after being in business for so many years they would have the class to warn their loyal customers they were closing. Instead we get nothing.

    I'd like to get my files!
