Domain oddity - possibly early warning...
Hello, We've noticed something we've never noticed before that became evident at 14:00 today... and which could be an isolated glitch at Verisign/Netsol, or it could be a sign of a larger problem looming. The domain utclassifieds.com is answered as NXDOMAIN in the gtld-servers. [rjoffe@layer9 rjoffe]$ dig @a.gtld-servers.net utclassifieds.com ns ; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> @a.gtld-servers.net utclassifieds.com ns ; (1 server found) ;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch ;; got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 4 ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; QUERY SECTION: ;; utclassifieds.com, type = NS, class = IN ;; AUTHORITY SECTION: com. 2D IN SOA a.gtld-servers.net. nstld.verisign-grs.com.

And the domain is valid and expires in July 2003. http://www.networksolutions.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois?STRING=utclassifieds.com&SearchType=do&STRING2.x=31&STRING2.y=8 If anyone else has a similar domain problem, I'd appreciate a note offline... Meantime we're trying to get an answer from NSI. -- Rodney Joffe CenterGate Research Group, LLC. http://www.centergate.com "Technology so advanced, even we don't understand it!"(SM)
