    I’ve been trying to go to the AABGA website, but have found it shut down – do you know if this is a permanent shutdown – it’s been more than two weeks now. I want to renew my membership. Any ideas?

    Yes, it's kind of silly that the organization didn't purchase a way to redirect to their new domain name.

    http://www.publicgardens.org/, the site of the American Public Gardens Association (they changed their name a couple years ago, so I guess this is why the new domain name)

    With this gap in communication they should change APGA to AGAP.

    Thanks!

    There are so many simple things they could have done/could still do, like adding tags to their current site so Google and other search engines will see the relationship, or a simple redirect script, or at least a link to click on.

    Cheers!
