Is Joker.com Joking or Choking?

Joker DNS servers are unavailable from most parts of the world for a few days now.

http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch?name=joker.com&type=A

fails miserably, as it does for most joker hosted domain names.

I’m only using their website now because of an /etc/hosts entry pointing to 194.176.0.86

194.176.0.86 www.joker.com joker.com

All these fail:

nslookup www.joker.com 207.44.185.10

nslookup www.joker.com 194.176.0.2

Whats going on? I’ve filed a support ticket, lets see what they say…

DDOS Attack on Joker.com Nameservers
Joker.com currently experiences massive distributed denial of service attacks against nameservers.
This affects DNS resolution of Joker.com itself, and also domains which make use of Joker.com nameservers.
We are very sorry for this issue, but we are working hard for a permanent solution.
Thank you for your understanding,

Your Team of Joker.com
