So I think what's happened is that Blackmagic Design have changed their domain from

http://www.blackmagic-design.com/ (OLD ONE)

to

http://www.blackmagicdesign.com (NEW ONE)

Good. I hated that little hyphen anyway.

They own both domain names. The unhyphenated version used to redirect to the hyphenated one. Maybe they just switched servers.

I remember thinking "why the hyphen?"

It seems odd that they didn't put a redirect on "blackmagic-design.com" though. Imagine how many articles, reviews etc are linked to "blackmagic-design.com" Maybe they'll fix that in the next day or two?

edit: razz was too quick for me r.e. the redirecting situation

...without a simple redirect?

How long have they owned the new domain? The last time I checked - which was probably a while ago - the non-hyphenated version was owned by a yachting design company.

And I would like to apologize for the extent to which my playing junior web detective yesterday may have contributed to any unnecessary brouhaha.

There's a film or t.v idea there. 'Randyman: Junior Web Detective' has a certain ring to it.
