Approximately 24 hours prior to this post MobileHike.com stopped loading. We thought at first this was a DNS or server issue, however as of 12 hours ago MobileHike now points to GoDaddy default.

In addition, some registrars are now showing the site has transferred ownership from a China address to an India address.

We had the optimistic thought that perhaps MobileHike.com had accidentally let their domain name lapse and someone had snatched it up. Unfortunately, old registrar info shows that the domain wasn’t set to expire until 13-MAY-2016.

Either MobileHike.com changed their registrar info, or they cancelled their ownership of MobileHike.com and someone else snatched the domain.

Regardless, we have no contact from them within 24 hours and our Skype contact has not replied. Their site is down and registrar info has changed. At this point we assume it’s not a DNS/site/server problem.

We recommend any users who have purchased from MobileHike.com begin the refund process ASAP. Do not wait.

Make sure to gather all relevant information. Screenshots of the domain down, any sales confirmation screenshots, etc…

Our sympathies to anyone who needs to deal with this.
