EARLIER TODAY we reported that the domain name registrar behemoth
Register.com suffered from wide-scale DNS nameserver problems last
The problems have resumed this evening, occurring shortly after 19.30
GMT. Names hosted by Register.com's nameservers are not resolving, and
the company website is currently inaccessible.
A variety of INQ readers have commented on the original article, with
further news of this new outage.
Though some pointed to a denial-of-service attack yesterday,
Register.com support staff are now actively telling customers
over-the-phone that the company's servers are definitely currently under
fire from some form of DDOS.
>From the sounds being heard from disgruntled customers, Register.com is
poised to lose a lot of business from this fiasco.
