Business security measures using SSL

There's fevered speculation that NTL could be about to pull the plug on its nthellworld.com whinge site after it disappeared either sometime last night or earlier this morning.

A message on the site says: "This site is currently unavailable. ntl:home apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you are looking for help or assistance on our services, please visit the links below."

Asked to comment on the speculation, a spokesman for NTL said it was just a temporary problem with the server and that the site would be back up again in a "few hours".

In June, NTL angers users after it announced that its nthellworld.com site would only deal with "off-topic" discussions. Instead, the cableco wanted a new "NTL Community" site to become the new "definitive source of product advice, news and technical support".

Many NTL watchers believe that the site might undergo a makeover to strip out any of the criticisms posted by unhappy customers of the cableco. ®
