I'm sorry to announce that someone else has sniped and parked laserdiscarchive.lddb.com, probably forever.

I was closely monitoring the expiration of the domain with the exact expiry date/time but an organization (bodis.com), harvesting expiring domains for monetization, took it instantly before I had a chance.

Now, it's truly dead and buried... as it will be renewed yearly as long as the ads cover for the domain cost.

I do have a full website archive (without the PDFs) currently hosted on laserdiscarchive.lddb.com.lddb.com.

What would be a good/netter legacy URL for it?

Maybe laserdiscarchive.lddb.com, laserdiscarchive-legacy.lddb.com or laserdiscarchive-preserved.lddb.com would be a better memorial location?

I believe laserdiscarchive.lddb.com is the most popular one so... sub-domain created and all links on this forum pointed back to the new URLs.

=> https://laserdiscarchive.lddb.com/

New SSL certificate generated to have all laserdiscarchive.lddb.com under HTTPS.

Also working on adding a legacy header (with relevant links) on each of the 500+ pages of LaserdiscArchive.co.uk like this one:

This is a legacy archive of laserdiscarchive.co.uk

This website was run until 2007~2010 by Iain Hodgman and became abandoned before the domain expired and was parked for ads.
Whereabouts of Iain are unknown, we haven't received any email from him in 15+ years.
