We apologize for the delays in updating you regarding the problems.

We had a network problem with connections to our main nameservers. The nameservers were the target of a DDOS attack. All domain records were dropped as a result. This was causing problems for any domain using our name servers. This should be corrected now and you should be able to access your sites.

However, there may be a delay because of propagation time after the reload of the zone files. Please test your domains to see if they have fully propagated and caches at your ISP have updated.

If you have further problems, please feel free to update this trouble ticket with the domains affected.

Thank you for choosing The Planet,

DNS was not working for a couple of hours from 12AM EDT to around 3AM. This caused Adnet's servers to appear down when they were up and running.
