Gospel Music Times Experiences Major Outage

Written by Scoops Staff on January 8, 2010 – 10:02 pm -

Newburgh, IN – The Gospel Music Times, a popular e-zine for Southern Gospel fans and artists, is experiencing a major outage that is preventing the website from displaying. The site has been down since around 3:00 AM on January 6, 2010.

The following excerpts are from a message sent to all Gospel Music Times subscribers earlier today:

“When Gospel Music Times of Indiana acquired the Gospel Music Times website and domain from 145 Music Group, we thought we had taken all the steps necessary to lock down the domain. Unfortunately, it appears we missed something, because the “” domain has somehow been modified and the name server information was changed from our name servers to the name servers of Domains By Proxy, the company 145 Music Group registered the domain with (name servers tie the domain name, “” to the IP address of our web server). 145 Music Group closed its doors in June of 2009, and all of our attempts to reach 145 Music Group’s owner have failed. Since we can’t get verification to Domains By Proxy from the original owner of the domain allowing them to speak with us, our attempts to get the name servers changed back have been unsuccessful. This not only takes our website down, but our email as well. As a result, the website has been inaccessible since 3:00 AM on January 6, 2010. I sincerely apologize to all of you that this has occurred. Prior to this incident we had a 100% uptime measurement that we were very pleased with.”

“We hope that each of you will stay with us, because when the dust settles from all of this we believe we will be an even stronger presence in Southern Gospel music than we are now. In fact, this will no doubt end up as a blessing, as we are sure it is all part of God’s plan. We can’t always see what the end result will be when God starts to work, but we know He has everything under control. Please pray for us as we navigate through all of this that we will follow God’s leading and do His will.”

The website can still be viewed at: Please forward all questions and/or concerns to
