Yatra Forgets To Renew Domain Name In Time

This can happen when you book domains for 10 years: someone at Yatra.com forgot to renew the domain name, which had been registered on August 9th 2000, and expired on August 9th 2013. The database records were updated today, and Amit Ranjan apparently first spotted it online (a few people messaged us as well) when it was redirecting to a domainer page.

We checked, and at the time of writing this post, the domain was still redirecting to a domainer website for us. It appears that the domain registration has since been updated, but only for a year (till August 11th 2014). It will take a little time (a day, maximum) for the DNS to propagate. For Yatra, that means a significant loss in business.  We haven’t yet received a response to a text message sent to Yatra.com founder Dhruv Shringi.
