tnir.org domain problems

by ,

I’m not sure how, but tnir’s DNS entry got zapped tonight. According to “host tnir.org”:

tnir.org is an alias for wc.traffic.puredns.com.
wc.traffic.puredns.com is an alias for wc.funnel.revenuedirect.com.akadns.net.
wc.funnel.revenuedirect.com.akadns.net has address 69.25.47.165

I’ve checked, and I have tnir.org registered at lowcostdomains.ca through Dec 2 2006. The whois entry is still correct, and says, in part:

Domain ID:D14408804-LROR
Domain Name:TNIR.ORG
Created On:02-Dec-1999 06:06:24 UTC
Last Updated On:06-Apr-2006 05:47:48 UTC
Expiration Date:02-Dec-2006 06:06:23 UTC
Sponsoring Registrar:Tucows Inc. (R11-LROR)
Status:OK
Registrant ID:tumD0AI0A6wVRHMa
Registrant Name:Reid Ellis
Registrant Street1:45 Bournville Drive

I’ve used lowcostdomains’ web interface to reset the DNS back to normal, but I worry that the MX records are gone. :-/ We shall see (hopefully).

Until this all blows over, the old-style tnir.mef.org domain name can be used for some things. http://tnir.mef.org points at what used to be rae.tnir.org, and mail to rae@tnir.mef.org should also work.

Unfortunately, I don’t have “wildcard” DNS set up for perrella.org or luisa.org (two domains that still point correctly to tnir), so I can’t quickly or easily set up alternate domains for David’s blog or Tech Tok. :-/

General.

    I’m looking around on the ‘Net, and other hosts like imap.osafoundation.org and home.samurai.com see tnir.org as pointing at my IP addres as usual. I still have the same problem as last night though.

    Could it be a local problem with my ISP’s name server? Hmm..
