EARLIER TODAY we reported that the domain name registrar behemoth 
Register.com suffered from wide-scale DNS nameserver problems last 
night.

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
