Removing a Force9 hosted Web Site with out of date content - not owner

Hi there,

 

I am new to this site. A web site contains some old information about a friend of mine, which is very out of date. It includes contact details and they are becoming distressed by constantly receiving calls and contact regarding the content. I've tried contacting the Registrants contact, but haven't had any response. I am now trying to track down the hosting. The DNS address is pointing at ns1.force9.net, after a bit of digging, it looks like that has been taken over by PlusNet. 

 

I've had a search on the forum, but haven't been able to find anything. 

Any help anybody can provide would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

Dave

Thanks for this, unfortunately I am not the owner of the web hosting. I suspect the person who put it up there has long gone...

I tried that and it also redirected to the PlusNet web site...

@davidmsheppard Yes, the site will be hosted by Plusnet since ns1.force9.net is one of their authoritative name servers. I'll escalate the post to the help team; hopefully one of them will respond here to advise.

Perhaps the only person who may be able to  help is @bobpullen and this notification may pick him up

He will need the website address and if possible the username

Perhaps if you click on the link and send him a pm giving this information he may be able to help early next week
