Just over an hour ago, the co-location facility we use in Amsterdam suffered a brief power outage, which resulted in two of our nameservers being unexpectedly restarted:
ams1.easydns.com (part of the “ns1.easydns.com” Anycast cluster)
Our sysAdmins took “ams1.easydns.com” out of the “ns1.easydns.com” Anycast cluster as soon as this occurred, which means that “ns1.easydns.com” was not affected at all. However, as “ns6.easydns.net” is currently a stand-alone nameserver, our sysAdmins focused on bring this server up as quickly as possible.
At this time, “ns6.easydns.net” is operational again and responding to queries, and we will work with our co-location provider to determine the cause of this outage.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
