Cant get DVD FAB to work

What happened to DVDFAB?
I have DVD FAB 10 and it will no longer work. The DVDFAB website appears to be down. Anyone have any ideas?

If it is down for good, what alternatives are good?

Also, need a good media player and file converter.

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

You may owe them some money I get that with some software that was free, especially if packaged  then they ask a yearly fee after a year or so.
DVDFab ripper is not free?

I use DVDVideoSoft free studio but it's not free now I paid for a yearly subscription if I want to use any of the programs in the Studio, I use the mp4 converter and the audio editor..
DVD Studio  includes something like 21apps
There are a few good free tools if you just want the DVD rip part.
I have also used  DVD Flick it includes a manual worth a read
 no bloatware included.
I also use Freemake  if I remember it may include a freeware just untick and follow on at install it has worked for me for years.

As it turned out, my firewall was set to block all traffic from china, russia and afghanistan. has a russina ip address. I created an exclusion and resolved the issue.

Thank you everyone. I am trying to assign partial credit to each of you, but for some reason they took that functionality away...
