What to do with an on-line store that wont "die"?
We`ve closed the front page of GoTruckStop.com ... by putting up an "Under Costruction" page.
I have a design team trying to change the data base so my images will be "un-locked" ... not held hostage by another web server. (I really don`t want to get into all that.) But currently all our "thumbnails" are unavailable.
Our customers are coming into the site via the back door, available links, and bookmarks.
And yet, our sales have continued to increase over the past 4 weeks.
And I`ll be leaving for Afghanistan in approx 6 weeks.
Whats one to do?
TJG, thats a gonna be tricky.. Here is why.. There is a way to shut your Web Site completely but... It won`t work because you are probably running a MSQL, or MySQL Database... and you need it to access the DB.. Now what you can do is make an image (back up of the database) and if you already migrated to another server... then point the domain name to my servers..
and this will send your customers to a blank 404 error page. Or go to your domain name and don`t put name servers in ... you know the part with ns1 and ns2. This will shut your domain down... another thing you can do is put a parking page. Again into your domain name and request a parked page. If you`d like I can help you..
