The W3C clearly haven't considered the case of a hosting provider
pulling the plug on a customer.

The same happened to countless Geocities users years ago.

I had to change uRLs myself just recently.  I had my own hosting, but
used a free dynamic DNS service (yi.org) to provide the hostname.  That
was set up years ago when I had no income and was at university.

They started acting up this year, with failed DNS resolution issues, and
a management site that was really misbehaving badly.  I now earn an
income, so I figured it was high time for me to move.  Hence the new domain.

In my case, I was fortunate the old domain still intermittently worked
(and still does work), and so I was able to put the redirects in place.
 Had yi.org just folded altogether however, I'd be stuck in the same way
that Stephen was.
