When you use a site on a regular basis it is nice to have keyboard shortcuts to make navigation easy. A week ago we added support to DNSimple for various keyboard shortcuts to make your life easier. Here is a short explanation on how to use them and how we implemented them.
We're moving our write enabled Postgres cluster to a new data center. As such we've scheduled a one hour maintenance window starting at 8am Pacific time (1500 UTC) on Sunday, June 30. The DNSimple app and API will be unavailable for roughly twenty minutes.
By popular demand, we added a confirmation dialog when trying to delete a record from the advanced editor.
Several days ago we detected the start of a DNS amplification attack. This attack was nothing special until the morning of June 3rd when it changed in a manner causing an outage for DNSimple name servers.
On May 20th, beginning at about 11:30am Pacific time (18:30 UTC), we experienced a partial service outage. A component failure blocked our customers from updating their DNS records.
