In case you’ve been trying to access Moniker or SnapNames, I want to make you aware that the company is experiencing a system outage. Unfortunately, that means DNS changes, registrations, account changes, and transfer initiations can’t be done in the meantime.
According to the company’s Facebook page about an hour ago:
“Our apologies for the disruption of services currently being experienced by Moniker and SnapNames customers. We are working to correct the issue and will keep you posted as we work on a resolution. Again our sincerest apologies.”
A few minutes ago, the company provided another update:
UPDATE: We continue to experience a system outage. Our engineers and network consultants are diligently working toward a solution. We will continue to provide updates until the issue is resolved. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
The company doesn’t know when the websites will be up and running again, but I assume it won’t be too long. I’ll give you an update when I hear more. I guess it’s not such a good week to be a domain registrar.
*** Update at 11:15 ***
Looks like the sites are back (or are in the process of coming back) online according to the latest tweet from the company:
UPDATE: Moniker and SnapNames services are being brought back up. Please understand that some services may be… fb.me/DoleAiWv
