Who stole my sites?

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure for a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today, you’d better go in disguise.
For every site that ever there was, has vanished now (not certain) because…
… today’s the day the ISPs have their panic.
Yup – XNAME.org, one of the world’s largest ISPs (and the one that provides some key services for http://www.yourpropertyexpert.com and http://www.yournegotiationexpert.com) had a massive attack late last night, and their servers got shut down.
As a result of this, they aren’t available for some (but not all) people. Sorry about this.
Given that the problem involves some 200,000 Internet sites, it’s rather out of my hands.
Note for techies: I use XNAME.org to host the Zone records. They got a DDOS attack on both NS0 and NS1 (.xname.org.) – if any of you can recommend a good (free) option for tertiary DNS servers, it would be appreciated – drop me an email.
