Post Why is Prothsearch Gone?

Has anyone noticed that the domain name www.prothsearch.net is for auction. I can't seem to find a post on this forum that covers this? In fact, the references to http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/page....t=RieselNumber are outdated. If someone knows why the domain name is for sale, post it here please. Thanks.

It is my understanding the Wilfrid Keller has ownership of the site. Although I did have access and did the regular updates for the Proth side of things, I will not keep the site going because of PrimeGrid.

Hi all,

To cut a long story short, prothsearch.net is now occupied by domain squatters who have put up some pages that look like the old site but contain links to some "eCommerce" site in order to trick you into clicking on their links. We have complained, but I guess it's not likely that will be resolved.

Wilfrid Keller has registered the domain www.prothsearch.com and is proceeding to upload much of the data from the old site, along with some updates and re-organisation. So please start using the new site, and remove the old one from your bookmarks!
