TalkTalk's authoritative DNS dead?


[link to this post]
 
I can't reach the www.talktalk.co.uk domain -- DNS lookups fail.

I have no issues looking up any other domains I've tried, and I've tried using three different DNS services: 1.1.1.1, 8.8.8.8, and 9.9.9.9. OpenDNS still has it cached, but I wonder for how much longer!

Anyone else seeing problems?

Yup, all three parent nameservers were down earlier. At the time of writing, two are now back up.

Maybe a denial of service attack.

Thanks, glad it's not just me. Five days until I migrate from the laughably awful Plusnet "business service" to TTR.
