down, domain name issues
Legal dispute over the
ownership of the domain name bodog.com is the reason for the
gambling website going offline.
Many Bodog players and bettors woke up to an error when
trying to access the website bodog.com or any other related
brand. Later today a redirect was set up to a new domain name "newbodog.com",
which is still in a process of completion.

A statement on the
new Bodog website read:
Welcome to the new (temporary) Bodog. As
you may know by now, Bodog.com is experiencing a technical issue
impacting our players' ability to access our website.
This is the result of a legal dispute over the ownership of the
Bodog.com domain name. We are fighting this dispute. We are
confident that we will win, but until all is settled, I do not
want our battle to interrupt your play.
So, I present you with newbodog.com. You won't notice very many
changes: same website, same brand, same product, and same
service. Just a new domain name.
We are working to resolve any remaining issues on the temporary
site as soon as possible, and fully expect to have our original
site back up shortly.
I sincerely apologize if you were affected by our interruption
and assure you that I will update you soon.
The statement was signed by the Bodog owner
and online gambling mogul Calvin Ayre. We will publish an update
on this story when it becomes available.
