Specialized website ever coming up?

The specialized website has been closed since before the holidays, maybe even before US Thanksgiving. Anyone know what the problem is?

Specialized doesn't do an automatic redirect to a real web host for http requests to the domain. What all that means is that if you type "http://specialized.com" or "specialized.com" in your browser's location bar, you'll get an error. Something like this: "The request did not specify a valid virtual host."

Instead, try typing "http://www.specialized.com" (note the 'www').

If that doesn't work, your problem is something else.

Somehow my favorite's switched to this URL
http://www.specialized.com/SBCUSHome...orig=us&etfd=y
and since that gets you to a page that says Specialized etc. I hadn't thought to try any searches. My lazy. Thanks for the redirect guys.
