Yes that was planned. I remember (I took a note of it at the time) it was the forum message posted a few months ago by Poztiffchess (top dog of Immortalforum I think)  saying that from end oif July 2017 there would be a switch over from the "immortalchess.net" domain to a new domain "immortal223.pozitiffchess.net".   He was suggesting that members start to use the new one early on to get used to it so that we would not be caught out at end of July.   Login for index page =  
Code:
http://immortal223.pozitiffchess.net/forum/index.php


Now, if you go to the  MXToolbox page as suggested by Zeus II a few posts ago:
Code:
https://mxtoolbox.com/
and copy in the "old" domain name immortalchess.net then do MX LOOKUP then FIND PROBLEMS (give it a few minutes to run) it lists some issues eg. DNS record not found, failed to connect etc.

However if you now do it again but copy in the new domain name immortal223.pozitiffchess.net and also just pozitiffchess.net and do MX LOOK UP then FIND PROBLEMS  - you get the same list of problems - in fact an even longer list of problems listed about  DNS record not found, failed to connect, IP Resolution error etc).  

So it seems odd  - if that switch over was planned for the last few months, why would the new domain not be there ready....unless it has been hacked as sugested by Oratios ?

Or perhaps, a petition was filed in the courts, by a third party(s), to revoke the domain due to legal violations (copyright infringement/violation of DMCA, etc.) and the specific jurisdiction has granted said request?  Hopefully, this is not the case.

And, yes gambit_man, it appears the MX records are not pointing to either domain at present.

I find myself missing the Immortal Forum very much!  I really hope a restoration is in the works.  It would be a great pity to lose it. My fingers crossed, too!

Maybe the shutdown is related to komodo. I remember that there were several pages of leechers begging for the latest one, 11.2.1. "Please PM the link" and so on ...

Maybe they weren't able to get pozitiffchess.net up and running independently before the scheduled shutdown of immortalchess.net. It could be other things as well. There could have been a fire in the server room, or the server itself is malfunctioning. Let's hope pozitiffchess has a working back up.

Hi thanks for info. Is it absolutely definite that it has been hacked or is that a best guess ?  I just wondered because (and I am no expert) if it had been a DDOS type attck I thought that mainly restricted access for a short period of time and that once the attack ended access was restored because netwrok traffic resumed normal levels.  I hadn't realised it could damage the forum itself.  Or are you thinking of a different type of hacking ?  What is invovled in the "final treatment" ?
Thanks

Ηι gambit_man.
It' s my opinion. I don' t know what is really happens.

Okay, so I checked out the code-list for the prot files and it only goes up to 160. Does anyone have a more up-to-date one and more specifically the prot info for Viktor Bologan Reti - a white repertoire?

In my opinion there was an attack or a technical problem because in the beginning of the failures there were several times where the server was down then up, then down.
If there was a shutdown by legal issues, this wouldn't happen, it would be down for good and not, up-down-up-down

Don't worried. Immortalchess will back return soon. Please, meanwhile, see this pages archived for you by WayBack machine.

https://web.archive.org/web/20160910203001/http://immortalchess.net/forum/index.php?langid=1

The main problem for me is the DNS of server.

See this info, it say that immortal is online!.:

Me too. It's strange that immortal admins haven´t made a public statement in order to keep informed to their members.
"http://www.chessgod101.com" seems to be a nice please to do it!

Could be a good idea to create a WhatsApp group  (an email list or any other channel) to get in touch? I mean, using a secondary WhatsApp ID.
IMHO we need a temporary channel of communication.

Dragspeed, it's in fact not immortalchess.com but immortalchess.net, which is down (as is pozitiffchess.net).

Thanks everyone for the updated prot list. It would be very disappointing to say the least if Immortal is no more. However, Immortal Forum is made up of members. We can create another one. I'm just thankful that we have this site to communicate and share info. So, thanks chessgod.

Agreed.  Especially with such a large membership.  You would think someone in authority could at least notify chessgod101 (who is/was a moderator and long time, respected member). Even if a solution is being sought behind the scenes, it does not require a major effort to notify the membership of the forum's current status.  Any statement would be helpful and appreciated by many. It is silly to keep everything in limbo after a week has passed.

I do, too.  Think its a great suggestion.

I contacted one of the former admins of immortalchess whom I happened to have in my skype contacts and his response was that he did not know what was happening. Considering that I am very limited by what I can offer with this free forumotion forum, if we do not hear anything from the admins within a few more weeks, I may consider opening a new immortalchess with an offshore dedicated server.
