That’s a new one: DNS outage

The box that powers is up. I know this because is served from this very same server. However, you can't reach as of right now. Pings don't even resolve.

Dig reports this:

; < <>> DiG 9.3.1 < <>>
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Both zoneedit nameservers that tell users what server to find on are down. Granted, their service is free, so beggars can't be choosers, but in 7 solid years of web hosting, I've only seen this happen once before.

Here's hoping it's back by morning, or I'm going to have to find an alternate DNS host pronto.

: Nice. By invoking murphy's law and posting about the site being down, I've brought it back up. Whahoo! Thanks to whoever dragged their sleepy butt out of bed in Wisconsin to bring that nameserver back online.
