Site DNS Issue/Outage

Around 11am cst, the DNS resolution for HCS stopped working. So if you typed in 'huntsvillecarscene.com' the site may not have loaded. But for some, it might have still loaded due to DNS caching. Also, you could still access the site using the direct IP address (as I'm doing now).

The company that handles the DNS for Huntsville Car Scene has been notified, and are having issues with other clients as well. Unfortunately, there is no ETA on a fix.

If you see this message, you are one of the lucky ones with DNS caching helping remember the direct IP address.

We strive very hard to keep HCS up and running as fast as possible. Sorry for the outage! And thank you for visiting Huntsville Car Scene.com!

Well, it looks like we are having this problem again.

The company who handles our DNS must be having major issues today as their phone support is so busy that it tells you there are no more agents and hangs up. After trying repeatedly to reach them, I was able to hear an acknowledgement on their support line about the problem. There is no ETA for a fix.

Here's an article on what Cisco observed during the last outage last month:

And another that goes into the inner workings of DNS. This article mentions how GoDaddy also suffered the same problem:

If you want to follow the issue in real-time, here's a link to the latest tweets of everyone affected. It's a big list of companies that are having the same issue:

As with the previous outage, you may still be able to access the site using the IP address if DNS caching is working in your favor.

We strive very hard to keep HCS up and running as fast as possible. Sorry for the outage! And thank you for visiting Huntsville Car Scene.com!
