  • Could site be restored for a while?

    I am wondering if the site, now taken down, could be put back up for a while. I have a lot of games stored there, which I would like to retrieve. I had operated on the assumption that the site would always exist.

    Here is some domain registration information - perhaps your request should be sent to someone mentioned in here (although the site might be permanently defunct; no idea who ran the place?)

      You could also consult the Internet WayBack Machine - a lot of website content is archived, but it is a bit of hit and miss:

      [ hmmm - I just tried there and there doesn't seem to be anything at all for ] Sorry.

        Twice we offered to purchase chess5 with all its components intact and keep it going as is. In 2017 Ey­un said he wasn't all that interested in selling and wanted to keep the site up and running. Here in 2020 we haven't heard back ...sigh.

        You could always send Ey­un Lamhauge, the owner of chess5, your request...
