ENOM Major Outage

At this time we can't resolve Enom's website and all DNS requests to their 4 primary name servers are failing, although the hostnames themselves still resolve:

   Name Server: DNS1.NAME-SERVICES.COM
   Name Server: DNS2.NAME-SERVICES.COM
   Name Server: DNS3.NAME-SERVICES.COM
   Name Server: DNS4.NAME-SERVICES.COM
   Name Server: DNS5.NAME-SERVICES.COM

You would really think Enom, being the largest and #1 Registrar would invest in more reliable web infrastructure including clustered, load balanced servers which are geographically distributed.

We've seen huge DNS issues with Enom before.  If your business depends on its website, DO NOT use Enom or other third party DNS services.

We'e always found our own DNS, or self-hosted DNS to be more reliable, just as with self/VPS Dedicated Server Web Hosting.

Hopefully Enom resolves this one quickly, but the fact that their own site is now unresolvable means they need to seriously re-evaluate their systems.
