Today the Government Web Portal came out of the 15 days downtime that was needed by the Government Online Centre to effect a domain name migration1.

As of 1 December 2014, the new address of the Government Web Portal is www.govmu.org. I checked the website and noticed glitches on several pages. Many of them haven't been updated. A friend on Facebook even said a "recursive find/replace" looks like too much for some people.

However, what is more intriguing is what I am going to show in the below screencast. I'm just being lazy to write a lot.

Indeed, as seen in the video, the former domain name of the Mauritius Government Portal, i.e www.gov.mu, is for sale.

gov-mu-for-sale

On the other hand, the DNS servers of the new domain, i.e govmu.org, are not based in Mauritius. Notice the nameservers in the screenshot below:

govmu-org-dns

I could not find the new email address of the Government Online Centre at this page, so I rather informed the National Computer Board of these glitches.
