DomainSite Issues Explained

Someone sent me a PM asking for an explanation of our performance issues over the last couple of days. Here it is.

It's been a mixture of things, but for the most part its been related to many hundreds of IP addresses scripting the site trying to push thousands of orders through. This appears to be resolved now.

On Sunday, the COM/NET registry had some downtime so no registry related operations were possible during that time. This was on top of the DDOS type of attack mentioned above. I don't think it was an actual attack. I think it was more than likely someone trying to get dropping names by scripting registrar websites.

Hopefully, everything should be back to normal now. Unfortunately, there are times when various things may happen and we will have performance issues. It is also a certainty that it will happen again sometime in the future. However, we do our best to deal with and fix whatever issues we are having.

Thank,

Owen

Yes, I thought it was something like that, but what puzzles me is that you don't even offer dot EU, which is where one might have expected to the real focus to be?
