What kind of DDoS protection you have on your server or data center. Just to know

As many have noticed, the homepage and reports page have been 
intermittent, but mostly offline the past few days. I don't know a lot
about what is happening, but there has been a sustained ddos attack
against linode which of course affects servers they are hosting. If
anyone has more information, please share!

The servers page at along with the
API pages are operating from a different host and not affected by this.
Also be aware that the root zone is being generated from NS2
(, and is also still available from Both
of these servers are valid masters for the root zone.

Although a number of tier2 servers may be marked as failing or offline,
please manually check for yourself before discarding an ent ry. Since
the reports server is also falling under this attack, the results will
be unreliable. Some of the tier2 servers may also be hosted on linode
and be unresponsive, but a large number of opennic servers are still
available and working correctly. If the attacks continue, I will
probably attempt to run a local copy of the reports from NS2 to provide
more up-to-date information.
