This post is a mess and I apologize in advance. And for the record, I am a satisfied Dreamhost customer who is glad Dreamhost is growing, and I don’t mind some growing pains. I like to think I’m a realist about technology.
I cannot get DNS to resolve for my site. Invariably I get “host not found” from ping and other utilities. In addition, I cannot get through to the Dreamhoststatus.com blog. My questions are:
Is the cause of the problem known?
Is there an estimate of when it will be fixed?
Is there anything I should be doing to help (notifying DH personnel that “This specific server is down”)?
Thank you to anyone who can answer. I brag on Dreamhost all the time to friends, colleagues and clients, so I’m hoping they don’t notice this downtime (which appears to have been going on from Thursday afternoon through Friday morning here).
