    Who actually owns ACL these days?

    Could one of the moderators or administrators please tell us?

    Is Phil Still the owner of this domain?

    I can tell you that Phil still owns the ACL domain regardless of any rumours, Im actually amazed that this got asked just because of some long overdue updates being done to the forum

    Phil still owns the domain.

    ACL will still be hosted by Phil.

    The downtime announcement in the news fader was put up by Phil. I merely created a thread in announcements to ensure that the notice is not missed and to further explain why there will be an outage.

    The migration will be a team effort between Phil and myself.

    you will find that the AusChristmasLighting domain has been privately listed, meaning the details you will see on a whois search will infact be the company that has registered the domain name to the internet directory.. in this case

    Domain name: AUSCHRISTMASLIGHTING.COM
    Administrative Contact:
    Privacy Group, Domain auschristmaslighting.com@domainprivacygroup.com

    Hmm that is strange,
    if you goto www.domainprivacygroup.com (the privacy place) they use a invalid security certificate..
    sounds like phil went the cheap way to hide his whois details..lol

    The only issue with the certificate is that it is issued to domainprivacygroup.com (rather than www.domainprivacygroup.com) If you go to https://domainprivacygroup.com/ it's all good.

    That's just a masking site that allows people to have private registration, but still be able to be contacted - the domainprivacygroup.com just acts as in intermediary.
