Seems like Network Solutions is either having major issues internally or is under some sort of attack... websites that depend on their DNS and Network Solutions' own website are sluggish to respond, if they respond at all. I've attempted to connect via 3 seperate net connections without luck.

I tried calling them but all I get is "all trunks are busy" messages. Sounds like somethings up!

one nameserver came back, but the other's still timing out. i set up new zones at zoneedit but netsol's site isn't responding so i can't get in to add zoneedit nameservers as backups.

They are still having issues. Telephone hotline says 'equipment failure'. Hopefully everything comes back up soon. One of our sites is OOS.

finally got into netsol and added those zoneedit nameservers as backups, leaving the two worldnic and adding two at zoneedit.

but how long before this takes effect? how are the root servers notified about this?
