Sleepy eNom bombs websites in HUGE DNS OUTAGE – remains silent despite gripes

Titsup for five hours but yet to 'fess up to service strife

Domain name registrar eNom appears to have gone titsup worldwide since the early hours of this morning, according to reports from furious customers who – at time of publication – were yet to get a response from the Washington-based firm.

Reg reader Tim told us that the service buckled roughly five hours ago.

He claimed that eNom had remained completely silent, despite the fact that DNS complaints were continuing to stack up.

Indeed, gripes were flooding in over on Twitter, but eNom was yet to respond to any of its customers as El Reg went to press.

Some customers reported intermittent DNS issues with the service, while others – particularly those based in Europe – complained that their websites were down.

One subscriber flagged up flaky DNS problems to eNom last Thursday, but at the time the firm said it was unaware of any faults with its service.

The Register was unable to reach eNom at time of publication. We'll update the story if we hear back from the firm. ®
