Application maintenance window (April 21st)
In order to update several low level components of our software stack we have scheduled a maintenance window beginning Sunday, April 21 at 0400 UTC (Saturday, April 20th at 9PM Pacific time). It will remain open for two hours. We expect the DNSimple application and API to be unavailable for less than twenty minutes. Name service will not be affected. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause our customers. Updates will be posted to our Twitter feed.
Update 1: We will also take the redirector offline for 5 minutes to update low level components on that system as well. If you are using URL forwarding this will result in your URL forwarding to be offline while the system is unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I like shiny things (it says so on my blog). I keep the machines humming at DNSimple.
We think domain management should be easy.
That's why we continue building DNSimple.
