Sounds like you have not paid the yearly renewal fee on your domain name and
the domain name register has suspended your domain name in their DNS
servers.  Try putting your assigned IP address in a remote browser to see if
you can access your website.

No firewall on my machine.

Thank you both--

sockstat -4 show that it's listening on *:80, which is right.
Neither tcpdump (assuming I'm reading it correcting) nor httpd-access.log
shows any tcp packets at all getting through except when lynx is run
from the machine on which apache is running after Sept 12 at 2:12 a.m.
Thus, I assume packets are not getting to the server, except when
requested from the local machine.

email and ftp are working--and I can log into the machine remotely--
so stuff is getting out and in.  tcpdump shows a lot of other activity,

So, I'm stumped.
