Since yesterday evening (8 PM), XName is facing the largest Distributed
Denial of Service (DDoS) it ever had to deal with.
A "small" one occured 24 hours before, causing xname servers to be off
during less than 2 hours.
We're working hard to find solutions, but our upstream providers had to
blacklist our IP addresses on their core network in order to preserve
their other customers - thanx to them for their help on finding
solutions (kazar.net and kheops.org).
We're doing our best to have at least one DNS server up and running
shortly, if the DDoS stops.
Besides, we're setting up a partnership with a high quality transit
provider, in order to be much less affected in case of DDoS in the
future - we should be able to move a DNS server there in few days.
