Noticed this morning after getting reports of some users not able to reach some sites that we use network solutions dns for. Was seeing response times to some of their name servers either time out or response times above 4000ms which is beyond normal timeout periods, etc.

this would explain some issues we were having earlier with some of our users.

I agree you don't hear much about them any more, but I do show them as the 4th largest registrar still

1 GO DADDY United States 32.025% 25,703,368
2 ENOM United States 8.031% 6,445,458
3 TUCOWS Canada 6.858% 5,504,082
4 NETWORK SOLUTIONS United States 6.461% 5,185,478

With over 5mil domains that could of been a lot of outages/issues with name resolution even if only half the domains they are registrar for use them for name services.

I know the 2 we point to are responding much better now

The recent DDOS attack affecting some customers has now been mitigated. Customer websites should be resolving normally, and you should be able to readily access the Network Solutions site. If you continue to have issues, please contact our Customer Service team at 1-866-391-4357. Thanks to everyone for their patience as we resolved this issue.
