I have my domain names registered through DirectNIc, who is based out of New Orleans, LA. There servers were up last night, but are down today. I know it is a small thing in the grand scheme of things, but does anyne know the status of the company.

I use them for hosting and domain forwarding, and my sites are currently down.

Probably running short on fuel - see this report on their efforts to keep operational.

Thankfully, it sounds as if they are in a safe place. Good luck and God Bless to the people over a DirectNic and Zipa. Stay safe!

Here is a message from DirectNic - unfortunately, their servers seem to be presently offline. They host a huge number of domain names and websites.

Intercosmos Media Group, Inc. wants to thank all of its directNIC.com customers for the overwhelming support and inquiries into our wellbeing.

We are based in New Orleans and located in a secure and dry skyscraper, where our datacenter has remained fully operational.

Our staff is safe and well -- some have been working around the clock in New Orleans to keep clients running smoothly, and other employees have left to safer locations to keep an eye on the network from afar.

We are pleased to announce that we haven't lost service once during this entire distaster, and we have three weeks of backup power secured, and more resources are on the way.

Additionally, backup options outside of New Orleans are being implemented as an added precaution.

Thank you for your support and know we are working hard to maintain our excellent services even during this castrophe.
