Going to http://abcathome.com gives:

This domain has expired. If you owned this domain, contact your domain registration service provider for further assistance. If you need help identifying your provider, visit http://tucowsdomains.com.

Hopefully, someone will turn up at work tomorrow or Friday and realise they've simply forgotten to renew the domain.

And now the domain goes to a fake Yahoo! survey that then takes you to a selling site.

Eh? What does?

The BOINC Manager option "Home page" for ABC@Home goes to a page at http://abcathome.com/ saying:

"This domain has expired. If you owned this domain, contact your domain registration service provider for further assistance. If you need help identifying your provider, visit http://tucowsdomains.com.

Abcathome.com

What is it that works for you?

Looks like the project homepage to me, are you sure there isn't something wrong on your end? Flush DNS cache, etc.?

And me, too, from VA in USA.

But one top host has received, returned, and had work validated in the last couple of days. And I see this recent post in the forum, that says, "Sites DNS was down for a few days after it expired on 12/28, but its IP was still working. Finally got renewed."

Thank you. Flushing the cache now shows me the project home page.

I should have checked in the BOINC Manager Event Log:
