Taking a website offline

Hello. A few years ago, I built a website for a pub and hosted it with TSO Host. The people who owned the pub went into liquidation and asked me to remove the website and let the domain expire, both of which I have done. The website is still LIVE… I have checked with TSO host and the domain has expired and after speaking to tech support they have said that the websites name server is with Cloudflare. I have checked my Cloudflare dashboard and can see no sign of anything to do with the website. The website needs to be gone. Any ideas ?


How long has it been? Long enough for the domain to expire? And might someone else have registered the expired domain?

Can you share the domain in question?

Hi, the domain says it expired on 4/10/11. I can’t post a link here… but the website is called stationinnoxenholme co uk


Sorry that date should be 04-10-22

I show that it was registered in January of 2023 and expires in 2024. That makes it someone else’s domain now.

whois stationinnoxenholme.co.uk

That doesn’t grant them license to use the previous site content, of course. You might want to file an abuse report with Cloudflare. I don’t know how long it may take to see results from that or if you will at all.
