tdt.com has been sold

Post by TheCollector » Wed Sep 29, 2010 8:25 pm

Hey folks,

So as you may or may not know tdt.com has been sold to SK himself..rather the domain name has been sold. The forums will continue at a new site. Full info here
http://www.thedarktower.com/palaver/sho ... hp?t=11248

The transition date is tenativly scheduled for October 4th. I'll do my best to keep apprised of the actual transition, if there are any delays or issues that would extend the downtime I'll post the info in this thread.


Thanks much,

That's new,

originally it was www.stephenkingfans.com I see that if i head there it redirects me to www.kingsdarktower.com i guess Jerome must have changed his mind and want to keep it closer to the original name.
Thanks much,

That's it exactly. A lot of the people on the site objected to the word "fans" in the name, and kingsdarktower.com was still available. Thus the change.

It's now going to be:

www.TheDarkTower.org

I think this is final.

I'm surprised http://www.thedarktower.org is still available, as I would have assumed that King would have purchased any domain extension that was still available (.org, .net etc) and just redirected them to the .com site.

It looks like the move to the .org site has gone without a hitch.
