Not quite sure why a public site would hide the registration info- but there is the possibility that someone didn’t renew the URL and a squatter bought it and is holding it for ransom- or, the new city website developer is moving domains to the more proper .gov domain- and just didn’t bother to build a site worth indexing.

For now- forget contacting them, or learning anything about them. Don’t worry- you can still find the dockets etc. at http://wejis.com/PA/HomePage.cfm

because, of course, everyone knows that wejis stands for Dayton something…?

Of course, this operation is run by the Dayton Clerk of Courts- Mark Owens. The Democratic Party Chairman. Maybe he’d care to explain why the site is down.

UPDATE

Apparently, they moved the site to https and didn’t tell Google- or configure it properly or both. https://daytonmunicipalcourt.org/
