Domain name mix-up cuts off Club Penguin

Kelowna’s most lauded business success story was briefly felled by a glitch.

Kelowna’s most lauded business success story was briefly felled by a glitch.

Club Penguin, owned by Disney Online Studios, went offline Monday after someone failed to renew the domain name.

“Club Penguin experienced a global service disruption that resulted in players around the world being unable to access the site,” a company spokeswoman told the Capital News.

“Our technical team worked hard to address the issue and the site is now fully functional for most of our players.”

It’s been estimated that Club Penguin’s 12 million players were unable to use  the gaming site for around six to seven hours.

The Internet company was sold to the Walt Disney Corp. for $350 million in 2007.
