At approximately 6:00pm on Sunday July 13th, the hosting provider for a large part of our infrastructure experienced a partial power failure, causing a lot of our backend switching and routing infrastructure to malfunction.
During this outage, the EasyDNS members site would have been inaccessible, as well as mail forwarding and web forwarding services. The bulk of the outage lasted 20 minutes, with after-effects against some services lasting some hours after that.
The web forwarding service outage lasted longer than anticipated due to an internal disagreement between several devices on who was directing the traffic. Intermittent service would have lasted between the beginning of the outage to about 11:00pm. As of this writing the service has been fully restored and the devices agree with each other again.
Because of our firm commitment to DNS uptime, our DNS infrastructure and domain name resolution were not impacted and no forwarded or backup MX mail was lost.
