The Simple, Screenshot Sharing service TinyGrab.com is experiencing issues with their short Grab.by domain which is used for the generic screenshot URL as well as image source URL for custom domains too.
The @TinyGrab twitter account tweeted this morning:
However the issue seems to not quite be as simple as the registrar, or even the registry having issues, put simply, it appears to be that the grab.by domain was allowed to expire, and as such the domain has now gone offline.
This goes to show how important it is to pick your domain registrar carefully, and keep on top of your domain renewals! Particularly when 340,000 users depend on the domain’s functioning. Just writing this post not being able to use TinyGrab showed what a pain screenshots used to be!
Hopefully the TinyGrab guys can get this sorted ASAP with their registrar and hopefully any users wondering why it’s down now know, will update this post as we learn more.
