Check Point Software, one of the world’s leading firewall vendors, forgot to renew its main domain name and it wound up parked by its registrar over the weekend.

The domain checkpoint.com had an expiry date of March 30.

According a screenshot over on The Register, it was resolving to a Network Solutions placeholder page until this afternoon.

The Whois record at DomainTools still shows NetSol’s pending renewal or deletion details, but the domain – a 1994 registration – appears to be resolving normally now.

The company has a market cap of $13.37 billion.
