About fide.com I got this information from a person (Mark Crowther) of "The Week in Chess" today regarding what's happened to fide.com Internet access:

" Its the fall out from the FIDE Commerce take over by Ilyumzhinov.
I understand they're trying to sort it out. I don't have an inside track
in FIDE but the person I asked was pretty confident it would be
back soonish."

I hope it was helpful.

it has moved to www.fideonline.com

No: fideonline is an alias for the old chessdaily.com, who only publishes FIDE ratings; now they added a small news section, but it's not the FIDE standard and complete website.

That's what I've read on TWIC

www.chesscenter.com/twic/twic401.html

" Part of the fallout of Artem Tarasov leaving FIDE Commerce seems to be that he has retained control of the site www.fide.com. FIDE have had to move sites and they are now up and running on www.fideonline.com it seems that Casto Abundo has taken over the running of the site.

At the FIDE meeting at the Ritz-Calton, Doha, Qatar 6-7 July 2002 the Presidential Board dealt with this issue as well as endorsing the concept of the Prague agreement to unify the titles. You can read about this in full at: 37" target="_blank">www.fideonline.com/news.asp?37

Various new titles have been announced including these new GMs Sargissian, Gabriel ARM, Stefanova, Antoaneta (WGM) BUL, Li, Shilong CHN, Delgado, Neurys CUB, Navara, David CZE, Mchedilishvili, Mikheil GEO, Jakubiec, Artur POL, Efimenko, Zahar UKR and Fedorchuk, Sergey UKR.

Internet address: www.fideonline.com "

Despite that, I guarantee that chessadily.com site is running from over an year, and fideonline is an alias, created on May. The site manages, as in the past, only the FIDE ratings.
