Bet9ja, an online bookmaker company that offers betting on major sporting events operating in Nigeria has lost its domain name. OduNews.com confirms that the address bet9ja.com is no longer accessible as the domain is now registered anonymously at Godaddy.
Why Is Bet9ja.com site down?
Data from ICANN Lookup also confirms that the domain, bet9ja.com is now with GoDaddy and is pointing to nameservers; ns37.domaincontrol.com and ns38.domaincontrol.com.
However, Bet9ja company is yet to open up clearly on what actually is going on with its official website, rather, an alternative domain, bet9ja2.com was introduced for users to continue to activities on the platform.
The betting company also assures users that their money and accounts are safe.
From a critical point of view, the domain bet9ja.com might have been re-registered by another user with Godaddy after the original owners failed to renew it. Another possible situation could be domain transfer with Auth Code. This simply means the domain could have been transferred away from the owner with their knowledge by someone who has access to the registrar’s details such as; email.
Well, at the moment, Bet9ja.com is doing all possible to have their website back on running on the original domain. Introducing an alternative domain without redirecting the original domain is also proof that the company are dealing with issues related to accessing the original domain.
