Most likely Baronius faked an outage to extort (more) money out of people.

Hmmm. Now that I think about it, when the server for my site goes down, all visitors see is an error message. It isn't like I get to put up a minimalist splash page with "Server down. BRB." Odd.

That's because that Server Down page is hosted on a third server (neither the current one, nor the new one). And, of course, paid membership was "needed" to pay the highly reliable server they're moving from.
