Yeah, I heard about downtime from couple of our clients.



Seems like US West coast datacenter has issues specially with DNS. I see
DNS working fine in Asia (via Singapore nodes), and in other parts of US as
well.


Here's a failing DNS node (checking from my Europe test server)



traceroute to 216.69.185.46 (216.69.185.46), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

I am very curious to know what prevents Godaddy from withdrawling prefixes
from that specific region and let other working datacenters to handle DNS?
Can that cause issue on other stable nodes during DOS attack?
