The CD Star online retail music website will remain closed while its owner, IT Media, re-evaluates "the whole business".
CD Star has been down ostensibly for "planned maintenance", but IT Media managing director Tim Connell says the site's future is being reassessed.
"We're looking at the whole thing in the light of what's going on. We're just re-evaluating our position in the market at the moment."
He would say nothing more about the site's future.
CD Star was originally built by Christchurch-based eStarOnline but was sold to IT Media earlier this year. EStarOnline has refocused its attentions on building the technology behind e-commerce websites rather than running the site itself, but continues to provide technical support for CD Star.
