Ukip Website Down: Did They Forget Their Fees Or Possibly Hacked?

UPDATE: The fun's over, the Ukip website is back up and running.

Ukip appear to have taken another step towards the Dark Ages on Tuesday by losing their official webpage...


Ukip.org once full of scaremongering information has reverted back to an unregistered domain name, maybe because someone forgot to take pay the bills.

Perhaps 123.reg.org are just waiting for a purple cheque to clear.

An attempt to purchase the site tells users the domain name is actually taken still, but it appears an Oxford record label may have managed to nab it.

But some have doubted the deal will close...

Intriguingly the domain is registered until 22 March 2016 and was modified just today.

Ukip have said they are aware of a "technical problem". Have they been hacked?
