We are currently (as of 2:45 AM Eastern) experiencing resolution issues related to some servers in our dns1.easydns.com and dns2.easydns.net anycast clusters. These issues may be causing resolution issues for some customers. Our systems group is aware of the issue and is working hard on getting things back up to par. Updates will be made in this space as the situation evolves.
UPDATE 3:25 Eastern: The situation is now under control. All nameservers are responding normally and our systems group is monitoring the situation closely. If you do experience further issues, please let us know via email@example.com.
UPDATE: The issues we experienced last night were the effect of a DDOS attack on easyDNS nameservers. Throughout all of this our anycast clusters did remain online however certain nodes were flooded with traffic and became unresponsive. The attack has subsided and we are working internally and with our vendors to determine who the target was.
