As reported by Wired, it appears that domain seizures are no longer the domain of the ICE alone. It appears that registrar Go Daddy took down the hosted webform service JoftForm.com by changing the domain name’s nameservers. Even though an update to a blog post about the suspension on the site’s blog mentioned that the site is back online, DNN has not been able to access it under it’s old domain name at the time of this post.
- The Domain was suspended on February 15th, 2012
- JotForm asked their users to switch their form integrations from JotForm.com to Jotform.net
- The company operating JetForm (Interlogy Internet Technologies) switched their other domains from Go Daddy to Namecheap and Hover.
- The nameservers were switched back at Feb 16th 5pm EST
- 2 million user generated forms by hundreds of thousand of users were affected by the take down
- Interlogy Internet Technologies has yet to receive an explanation for the shutdown of the site
Last year the ICE seized mooo.com, which runs a free DNS service, and shut down 84,000 subdomains for two days while they were targeting a single site within the network.
