Katie Price’s personal website – katieprice.co.uk – has been deactivated.
The TV personality’s longstanding site – which she has used for over a decade to sell branded products and promote her own work and public appearances – cannot be reached any longer, when users attempt to visit it.
Despite Katie, 40, keeping the site’s link on her Twitter bio, fans will be met with a lengthy wait, before the connection times out and leaves a blank page.

According to The Sun, Katie has ‘failed to pay to keep the site going’.
The publication reports – from an unknown ‘tech’ source – that Katie ‘failed to keep up with the monthly hosting payments’ but that she ‘will keep control of the katieprice.co.uk address until April this year’ after which ‘it can be sold on to anyone who wants it’ [source unknown].
MailOnline has approached Katie’s reps for comment.
This comes after she appeared in court this week, facing charges of driving without insurance and driving while disqualified.

The model was fined £1,100 for the offence, and immediately asked the courts for an extension on the payment deadline, claiming not to be able to afford it in one lump sum.
While this marries up with The Sun’s claims that she cannot afford to pay for her website any longer, she seems to have contradicted this by posting an image of a new puppy, worth £1k.
She took to social media to share a sweet snap of herself cradling the pooch, which the glamour model is said to have splashed out on just three months after buying blue German Shepherd Bear, The Sun reports.
She has named the dog Sparkle – and showed off a new set of glossy extensions in the photo to boot.

One of Katie’s followers asked her ‘Is that a new puppy Kate?’, in the comments section of her most recent Instagram post.
Katie attended Crawley Magistrates Court where she pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified and not having third-party insurance for her vehicle, ending up being sentenced to a three-month driving ban and a fine of £1,100 on Thursday.
The mother-of-five was spotted driving on the A24 near her West Sussex home on July 25 while a six-month driving ban was still in place.
It comes after she pleaded not guilty on Monday to drink-driving after allegedly crashing her £75,000 Range Rover into a parked car while twice the legal limit.

Katie’s pink 4×4 smashed into a car and a hedge in South East London following her ex-boyfriend’s birthday party in the early hours of October 10 last year.
At the beginning of December, Katie avoided bankruptcy after coming to an agreement over her tax bill and a close pal allegedly loaned the star £22,000 to bail her out.
Katie’s case was heard at a specialist insolvency and companies court in Central London, which estimated her total debts ranged from £250,000 to £500,000.
She was not at the court for the hearing, which lasted less than two minutes.

Deputy Insolvency and Companies Court Judge Middleton said: ‘This case has been dismissed after the parties concerned reached an out of court agreement.
‘Court costs of £881 are to be paid in accordance with the terms of the IVO (Individual Voluntary Agreement).’
Outside court, a spokesman for HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) added: ‘We are not the lead creditors in this case, but we are happy with the agreement. I can’t tell you who the other creditors are in this case at the minute.
‘We don’t have a specific date for the first payment and the amount has not been decided. Katie Price was not obliged to turn up to this court hearing today.’
