It's almost reassuring to see a large company make basic mistakes like this - UK toy store Hamley's (one of our best-known retailers, a tourist destination in its own right so I'm told although personally I find it looks a little dated) forgot to renew its domain for a few days.
Inevitably it was infested with ads for a while.
I do wonder what these companies think they're doing. It must be almost a decade since the satire site B3ta registered introducingmonday.co.uk - a consultancy was rebranding as Monday, put a lot of serious corporate stuff on introducingmonday.com but forgot about the UK equivalent - and people are still being caught out.
I'm a self-employed individual and I manage to renew my domains because the registrars send automatic reminders. I have to ask myself, how easy do the registration companies have to make this stuff..?
