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 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.
Register.com has been pretty tight lipped regarding the problem so far, and few other news outlets have yet to pounce on the INQ's lead.
Names hosted by Register.com nameservers are still not resolving as this article goes to press, an hour later. µ
