    DNS issues causing possible site and email downtime

    Posted 3 minutes ago (April 8th, 2007 at 1:29 am PST) by micah

    Severity: Medium Resolved: No We are currently experiencing intermittent DNS outages on all of our nameservers, this is causing problems with sites and email functioning properly.
    We think it might be the DNS load balancers we’ve recently installed but haven’t determined that for sure yet. More information will be posted as we have it.
    Our apologies for the inconvenience this causes.

    Yep, all the sites that I know of which are hosted by this....company are down. That includes their own.

    It seems to me (and this is just my opinion, not an allegation) that Dreamhost has had nothing but problems over the past few months.

    I predict a mass exodus.

    Just managed to view their status page. It's a DOS attack

    UPDATE (2007-04-08 03:20 PDT): It appears we are the victims of an Easter DOS attack against our nameservers, we have an admin at the datacenter and our network expert onhand to deal with it. Hopefully things will be back to normal shortly.
