False Positives & Broken Communication Lines Cause DNS Hell

 

What else can 2020 throw at us? Turns out the year isn’t over yet and we’ve got a bit of a story for you…

In short, starting at approximately 22:30 pm PST on December 8th and gradually becoming more prominent over the next hour the geni.us domain was partially unavailable due to a DNS error. This broke a number of links using our service and thus clicks from these links wouldn’t resolve. The issue was fully resolved by 2:00 am on December 9th. 

Our sincerest apologies if this impacted you or your links during this time.

Ready for the details? It’s a bit of a crazy one…
