    Not very professional. I imagine it will be back soon, but the person in charge may not be....

    Worked fine for me -- maybe you had a DNS problem?

    Check the 'whois' for microchip.com. Looks like it expired yesterday and was renewed for two years. :eek:

    It must be still propagating across the DNS servers. My PC now gets the correct site but my phone on a different DNS server is still getting the placeholder.

    Might? It could have been turned into one of those pornographic sites, like whitehouse.com

    It's not like they don't get a notice within six months of expiring.
