Greek national broadcaster’s website ERT.gr is down again

This morning I reported that while the Greek National TV and Radio Organization (ERT) was shut down on June 11, 2013, the official ERT website ert.gr was moved to a new server on June 12, 2013 and was run by the employees protesting the closure.

Before the ERT closure this website was hosted at OTENET but the website was moved because of the close ties of OTENET with the Greek government.

Now it seems that the nameservers were once again changed and the website ert.gr is not resolving.

It is most probable that the employees had control of the account holding the domain name ert.gr at the Papaki.gr registrar and were able to change the nameservers the first time.

But is seems that the Greek government took control of the domain name later today and changed the nameservers so that the website ert.gr would not work. Ert.gr was used to protest against the ERT closure so I doubt that the Greek government was too happy with that.

Let’s see how this saga continues with both employees and the government fighting for control of the theERT.gr domain name and the website.
