There are fresh concerns today about Kent-based ISP, RedHotAnt, after its Web site disappeared overnight.

El Reg has spent most the morning looking for it - but we can't find it. We even looked down the back of the sofa and in the knicker drawer - but still, nothing.

According to one Vulture-eyed Reg reader: "As of 6.15 yesterday evening RHA's POP server was
taken down for 'upgrading', with a promise it would be back by 6am today. It wasn't, so I checked the Web site. The interesting thing is that the Web site isn't there either. No RHA.com, no email... And yes, internet-support.net [which is also owned by the same company that runs RHA] is gone as well."

Curious. However, El Reg can confirm that there is some life at internet-support.net - even though it's dated September 8th 2000.

It's possible RHA's upgrade is just taking longer than they imagined.

A fortnight ago police and trading standards officials raided the offices of RHA and removed equipment and documents in response to complaints about the ISP. RHA described the move as "rash". ®
