[AusNOG] Bit of a long shot but...

Not exactly, they are paying for the domain name via Melbourne IT (sigh)
and for other email hosting services, which is why this has apparently gone
unnoticed for some time. The web hosting and one of the other email hosting
services seems to have simply vanished some time ago, a few years after we
had a similar issue where it vanished from the bills and I caught on to the
fact the bill was way lower than it should have been. I think because it is
a small client on shared and very much obsolete infrastructure, nobody ever
noticed... The webserver is still running Apache 2.2.16, which went EOL
years ago.

Ideally if the billing situation does get fixed as I expect it will be, I
would hope the service would be migrated to infrastructure that isn't so
old it could feasibly be entering highschool by now!
