Since yesterday (6/30/2015) the Ellora’s Cave site as been “under construction.” According to a post on their Facebook page, there’s a new site coming.
One has to wonder why they didn’t sandbox the new site and just swap it out with the old one once it’s done? That would, after all, be a best practice. You never nuke your entire site without having the new one ready to go and tested. A couple of hours, okay.
Going on a whole day? Hmmm.
EDIT: As of 1:30pm eastern time 7/1/2015, the generic “under construction” page has been replaced by a customized “under construction” page. Don’t know if that’s progress or stalling. It also appears that the domain is forwarding to an account on a dedicated WordPress hosting service, http://wpengine.com/
EDIT 2 (3:30pm EST, 7/1/2015) Deirdre Saoirse Moen reports on her site that EC has sent out e-mails regarding new Kindle contract terms and an e-mail dated today that reports a site changeover. (Note: I call shenanigans, because EC’s excuse about changing stuff is bullshit. There are apps/programs that allow for wholesale database find/replace functions to make the pricing changes like they’re talking about super-easy.) http://deirdre.net/elloras-cave-new-kindle-contract-and-forthcoming-website/
EDIT 3 (5:00pm EST, 7/1/2015) Apparently the EC site is now back up. I hope customers will somehow be able to access their previous purchases in some manner.
