TechCrunch reported that email subscription service letter.ly was not able to renew its’ domain name and has attributed that to the ongoing situation in Libya.

The service has since switched its’ website to letterly.net.

.ly is the country code domain extension for Lybia – a number of businesses have launched using .ly domains, the most popular being the bit.ly url shortening service.

As of the time of this post, whois details for the domain show that letter.ly has already been renewed. The domain is now live and is currently forwarding to letterly.net.
