    If the domain was allowed to expire, it may take a while for the renewal to propogate around the name servers.
    Try again later.

    Thanks all. I now have access to the site again. It came back to life for me 18 hours after yesterday's offer (01 November) opened. (Must be because South Africa is so far away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
