Information on the DNS outage at 1&1 on December 9 2014

Update: The issue has been fully resolved and all affected websites are restored. If you are experiencing difficulty with your account, please contact our Customer Care Team

——-

Yesterday afternoon (12/9) at 4pm EST, an unknown third party began to initiate a DDoS attack on 1&1’s DNS infrastructure. The Domain Name System (DNS) is used to attribute internet addresses such as “1and1.com” to IP numbers, similar to a telephone book.

During the coordinated attack, many widely spread computers (also known as bot net) sent several hundred thousand requests per second to our DNS servers. The attack resulted in reduced availability on some of our hosting services (such as shared hosting, MyWebsite, servers, e-mail, control panel). Our engineers swiftly identified the target of the attack and have initiated respective countermeasures, making the majority of affected services now fully available. A small number of our customers may still encounter limited availability of their domain names as a result of this issue.

We are prioritizing work to fully resolve this as promptly as possible and apologize unreservedly for any inconvenience.
