Broken links on the Freetronics site

You may have noticed problems getting to some pages on our site, particularly if you used a link that's printed on a PCB.

We've had problems with the domain registrar for the ".com" version of our domain name, which has meant it's been offline for several weeks. Our site normally uses the ".com.au" version of our domain, but many of our products have URLs printed on them that point to the ".com" version of the URL because it's shorter and easier to fit on the PCB. There are also nearly 4000 internal links on our site that point to it.

We've been fixing internal links as quickly as we can, but there's nothing we can do about URLs printed on the hundreds of thousands of PCBs that we've shipped over the years.

Don't worry! All the pages are still there, and if you find a broken link you can still get to the page by simply adding the ".au" to the URL in your browser.

For example, if you were trying to get to the address "www.freetronics.com/leostick", simply change it to "www.freetronics.com.au/leostick" and everything should be fine.

We're really sorry about the inconvenience. Hopefully the .com version of our domain will be back and working very soon.
