Has Religion-Online gone for good?

One of the oldest and most useful sites in our area, Religion Online, appears to have vanished from the net. The site was a repository of hundreds of online articles and books, lots by the giants of the discipline.  It was a no-frills, what-you-see-is-what-you-get, basic text kind of set up.  I hope it has not gone for good.  Luckily, the files are retrievable from the internet archive, e.g. this is one of the most recent archives: Religion Online (Internet Archive).  The site appears not to have been updated since 2008, so it may be that its author has simply ceased maintaining it and that the domain name has gone.

I used to access that site all the time. Sorry to hear that it has disappeared, and thanks for the Internet Archive link.

It appears to be working ok today. It must have been a temporary glitch.

I was hoping the downtime was due to a facelift for the site. But alas not.

Good news -- thanks. Yes, shame no facelift but still good to have it back.
