TheRegister.co.uk, is reporting that Domain Name registrar enom appears to be having a huge DNS outage citing quite a few tweets from people who say service has been down for hours.
The story says:
“”Domain name registrar eNom appears to have gone titsup worldwide since the early hours of this morning, according to reports from furious customers who – at time of publication – were yet to get a response from the Washington-based firm.””
The story goes on to say:
“Some customers reported intermittent DNS issues with the service, while others – particularly those based in Europe – complained that their websites were down.”
UPDATE: We received this email from a representative of Rightside around 11:30am EST:
“It appears that there was a DNS outage this morning which affected some of our customers. We have resolved the issue and are investigating the cause and ways, if possible, to avoid this happening in the future.”
