DNS and mail failures
I have been runing a mail server for a few years now on a dynamic IP. I have had no real problem. Until today that is. It seems my DNS provider who is also my backup email server has gone missing in action.
All attempts to ping the 6 nameservers is failing. I did a troll of the newsgroups and found a few references to the issue. Who is it? Dynu Systems
Up until today they have been 100% reliable for me, for nearly 3 years. Now I can't find there website or nameservers. I don't mind so much that they are having an outage, its not knowing why? Have they shut up shop and done a runner? Was there building burnt down? I don't particularly want to redelegate the domain, but commercial reality will drive me to do so in a few hours. I am hoping I hear something from them in the meantime.
Yes, I know, your going to tell me to stop fooling around on dynamic DNS and get a fixed IP. Well it's easier said than done. I did have one but the ISP's performance wasn't up to par. I am very happy with my current ISP, Internode but they don't offer dynamic IP at my plan level. Oh well, I might have to shell out a few more bucks and get a static IP and run my own DNS.
