Don’t let your Domain Expire

Don’t be Jerry Jones, work on your business not in your business.

It wasn’t an exciting enough event when the Dallas Cowboys fired head coach Wade Phillips on Monday. When such a move happens, one of the first stops for a fanbase is a team’s official website; it’s where first press conferences and press releases are posted, as well as any (team-filtered) ancillary news. But Cowboys fans looking for new takes in the wake of the news that Phillips was gone and Jason Garrett was the new interim coach most likely went to the team’s official site and saw a blank screen.

According to the Dallas Morning News, the team forgot to renew the dallascowboys.com domain, and the site was left blank. The Cowboys’ marketing arm, led by one Jerry Jones, Jr., quickly renewed the domain, but that process can take up to two days to go through, and for a website to propagate on a domain — even if it’s been there before. The site is up, but until Tuesday morning, there were people on Twitter reporting that they could still see the “fail” page on certain browsers.
