Either aka.tv has up and gone out of business without so much as a goodbye, or else somebody over at the industry's favorite news site (aside from us, of course), has forgotten to renew their domain name. Since they use the exotic .tv TLD, as opposed to a regular .com, .net or .co.uk, you can't use a good tool like Better Whois to query the owner. Instead, you have to rely on a much less informative Verisign tool that notes only the following:
Domain Name: AKA.TVThey more than likely just forgot to renew their domain name (or had their registrar go out of business, which happens from time to time), so hopefully this should get resolved shortly.
Registrar: ENOM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.enom.com
Name Server: DNS3.NAME-SERVICES.COM

Has anybody heard differently?
[2007-03-23 UPDATE]: Looks like the site's back up. Per Barnaby's comment below, it appears it was just a technical glitch.
