Is doom9 still running?

Not the forum obviously, but http://www.doom9.org
The link at the top of the forum page doesn't seem to be working.

Nothing has changed lately - use the archived version:
http://wayback.archive.org/web/20160...www.doom9.org/

Finding archived pages made easy with Resurrect Pages plugin for Firefox:

Sorry, my bad. I missed that DNS-entry when I moved my servers, it should be ok soon.

Seems it has been down again for a while.

www.doom9.org resolves to a different IP than forum.doom9.org, and there's no web service.

Yeah, the Admin really should erase that hyperlink in the HTML-code of the pages...

Hmm, well, I brought it up for a different reason.

The forums used to be under the www subdomain. As long as it's down, all over the web there are tons of dead links to forum posts. I'll often Google something and get a promising result from the forums, or be following a link to the forum from another site, but I can't reach it unless I manually change the domain to forum.doom9.org, which most people won't know to do.

The web server should also respond to www.doom9.org requests with appropriate "301" redirects to forum.doom9.org. In theory, this should cause search engines to update their links, and it will help the Wayback Machine stay current, as well.

Cant remember much bout DNS records, https://www.cloudflare.com/en-gb/lea.../dns-a-record/

Would it be CNAME alias that is required:- https://www.cloudflare.com/en-gb/lea...-cname-record/

EDIT: To Below,
so then you'll have 3 names for the same site, nice to have choice:- http://forum.doom9.net/
A "permanent redirect" sounds like the ideal solution.

In DNS, a CNAME is an alias, yes, e.g. www.doom9.org could be set up as a CNAME for forum.doom9.org, or you can have just another A record saying that the IP address of www.doom9.org is the same as the one for forum.doom9.org. So that does need to be fixed.

But what I was talking about in the web server (Apache HTTPD, in this case) is a different piece. It is already configured (probably with a ServerAlias directive) to give the exact same responses for www.doom9.org as for forum.doom9.org. When the DNS is fixed, it means everything will once again "work"... but to the crawlers and archivers it is as if there are two separate websites which happen to have identical content.

The proper way to deal with it is to set it up so that the website for the domain you don't want people to linger on (www.doom9.org) responds to all requests with a permanent redirect to the other domain. To do this, an admin has to delete the ServerAlias directive for www.doom9.org and make a separate VirtualHost containing (along with a dummy DocumentRoot and whatever logging directives):
ServerName www.doom.org
RedirectPermanent / http://forum.doom9.org/

We have to wait for doom9 to pop up, I don't have access to the DNS and it needs to be changed. Just be patient.
