Bloomberg reported today that Fresh Direct that is an online grocer that operates in New York City and surrounding areas, had a website outage after failing to renew its domain name FreshDirect.com. The domain expired on the 23rd of December and after a website outage it was finally renewed. Customers complained at the company’s Facebook page that the website was down. The website is now up and running.
The domain freshdirect.com is registered with Network Solutions. It seems that the online grocer has learned it’s lesson as the domain was renewed for the maximum of 10 years and now expires in 2022. (Bloomberg mistakenly reports that it expired in 2024)
