Is Ranco having problems???

I went to the Ranco mother page and clicked on www.rancocontrols.com and it went to a redirecting site that is nothing but spam!
I called the factory to get some information and I'm telling you, the guy knows less than my daughters when it comes to controls!
He didn't understand what I was talking about when I mentioned to him that I wanted some ranges of stats that meet a constant cut in and adjustable cut out with the bulb IN the evaporator.
Heres the page of the Corporation, and if you try to get anything from Ranco good luck, everything on the web is junk. I can see why many companies such as McCall are switching.

Sounds like DNS cache poisoning. Wait a few hours and try again,
It's really quite common, but usually temporary, since most DNS SOA records are set to expire rather quickly (short TTL).
It happens to me ever now and then, too. I go to visit a site, and it's hijacked to a different server. It could last a few days. ;`(
Try here: <http://208.14.16.69/ran_prod_home.html
It bypasses DNS altogether. :-)

Hmmm, I did a little homework.
I did a reverse lookup and got errors. I used magic at samspade and got errors.
But Moniker.Com Whois Server says: Domain Name: RANCOCONTROLS.COM Registrant [23658]: Moniker Privacy Services 20 SW 27 Ave Suite 201 Pompano Beach FL 33069 US Administrative Contact [23658]: Role Moniker Privacy Services snipped-for-privacy@moniker.com Moniker Privacy Services 20 SW 27 Ave Suite 201 Pompano Beach FL 33069 US Phone: +1.9549848445 Fax: +1.9549699155 Billing Contact [23658]: Role Moniker Privacy Services snipped-for-privacy@moniker.com Moniker Privacy Services 20 SW 27 Ave Suite 201 Pompano Beach FL 33069 US Phone: +1.9549848445 Fax: +1.9549699155 Technical Contact [23658]: Role Moniker Privacy Services snipped-for-privacy@moniker.com Moniker Privacy Services 20 SW 27 Ave Suite 201 Pompano Beach FL 33069 US Phone: +1.9549848445 Fax: +1.9549699155 Domain servers in listed order: A.NS.ULTSEARCH.COM 66.116.109.47 B.NS.ULTSEARCH.COM 66.116.109.48 Record created on: 2002-04-03 14:14:00.0 Database last updated on: 2006-03-20 16:24:57.523 Domain Expires on: 2007-04-03 14:14:00.0 === But it appears to be hijacked to horizonsurfer.com.
Looks like they're having problems! Unless they recently sold the domain...

I wonder why would a billion dollar company sell a domain unless something is coming up or there is trouble?
Thanks for the input, I bet something is in the works with Ranco, maybe a buyout????? Invesys however is a strong company, maybe they are merging Ranco with Robertshaw.... just a thought
