I'm suprised you still use shared hosting. I've got all of what you mention, and it doesn't take handholding a hosting company to do. Its all in apache config.

That said, DynaDot is still down.

Re: Dynadot down
I have just noticed a missing domain in my account. Everyone should double check their accounts.

Re: Dynadot down
Names you've had for a long time, or recent additions?

They mention having to restore from backup - they're probably missing all the last few days of registrations.

Re: Dynadot down
Recent additions.

Re: Dynadot down

Re: Dynadot down
Some are calling them the next RegisterFly...

Even Dreamhost has better backups. Using RAID 1 they would not have had this issue.

My new (probable - haven't choosed yet) host has 2 hours backups!

Even their mail is on the main server...

BTW: Will ICANN give them some warnigs? How does it work?

Re: Dynadot down

Man, if ICANN gives them a warning over this I would love to submit an excel spreadsheet worth of snapname registrars that need more than simply a warning!

Re: Dynadot down
Hopefully this is a wake-up for them... and they make sure that a hardware failure doesn't take them down again i.e. mirror their server...

They really do need to explain the steps they are taking to ensure the millions of dollars of domains (hate to estimate value) is protected and accessable 24/7/365...

I recently moved all my domains to Dynadot (as got so annoyed with the Go Daddy)... but without an explanation of what they plan to do to ensure this 3 day mess doesn't occur again, I will be looking at moving them all again.

Cheers - Asiaplay

PS: lets see what they come out with as an explanation (as otherwise up until now I have been very happy with them)!
Interestingly enough, I have not received any e-mail on this from them yet (guess they are going out in batches!!!).
