Microsoft failed to renew the domain name Engyro.com recently when it came up for renewal. Engyro was a company that Microsoft acquired in 2007, was based in Cincinnati, and made the Product Connector Suite which helped enterprises with event sharing and synchronization between Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) and other management tools.

The Engyro Connectors Solution Center, however, is still live on the Microsoft Support site:
However, clicking on the first link, “Engyro Product Connectors”, on that page, brings you to a page on Engryo.com, whose domain name wasn’t been renewed. The domain name doesn’t currently resolve (at least not for me).
One of the whois services that I checked this morning (which obviously wasn’t updated) shows that the domain name expired on March 27, 2013:
If that’s the case, then it appears that Mark Monitor still held the domain until just recently, when it was apparently then deleted on April 7, 2014.

Microsoft may have realized their mistake and they may have now renewed the domain name.
Here are other domain names that Microsoft did not renew on April 7, 2014:
I especially like these domain names, which I am surprised that Microsoft failed to renews. I could see someone else (another company, perhaps) providing online advertising workshops:
