The first aid quiz website has been down for a couple of days. I only realised yesterday when checking on the site.
It appears that my hosting provider Compila.com had forgotten to renew my domain registration so my DNS entry had expired.
I'm going to look at creating a server status page that can be used to view the status of all my websites so I can spot these sooner in future. The way to check for DNS entries / status is using the Whois.net lookup tool for .com websites or through the whois box on Nominet.org.uk for .uk sites. As this is a simple web query it should be possible to automate this fairly easily in future.
My apologies for any inconvenience this caused.
