Gonna turn off the hosting software until POE fixes their sound card problems. My Creative card causes BSOD's with POE. Realm is pretty dead anyway, not a big hurtin losing 1 server. Will be back up hopefully soon.

Been playing a good bit of Neverwinter, and it can cause some crashes here n there. Because of this I've turned the hosting software off til the new patch.

Sorry guys, I know some are doing a HC run atm, but my lease was cut short with a new landlord after 3 years and lots of packing is going on. Internet could be in and out. I can turn the server off if anyone prefers. I only turned it back on because of complaints about the other hosts.

Bummer, because mine will be down until I sort out a new DNS and Duff updates the gateway.

Was sent this from No-IP



We want to update all our loyal customers about the service outages that many of you are experiencing today and to provide a temporary solution until we can get the issue resolved.

Our temporary solution is to log into your account and create a new hostname using any from the list (we have removed the ones included in the Microsoft takedown and have added new, unaffected ones including: ddns.net, webhop.me, serveminecraft.net, ddnsking.com, onthewifi.com).
Why is this happening? You can also read our formal response on our blog to comment and share on Facebook and Twitter.
It is not a technical issue. This morning, Microsoft served a federal court order and seized 22 of our most commonly used domains because they claimed that some of the subdomains have been abused by creators of malware. We were very surprised by this. We have a long history of proactively working with other companies when cases of alleged malicious activity have been reported to us. Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of communication with Microsoft corporate executives.

We have been in contact with Microsoft today. They claim that their intent is to only filter out the known bad hostnames in each seized domain, while continuing to allow the good hostnames to resolve. However, this is not happening. Apparently, the Microsoft infrastructure is not able to handle the billions of queries from our customers. Millions of innocent users are experiencing outages to their services because of Microsoft’s attempt to remediate hostnames associated with a few bad actors.

Had Microsoft contacted us, we could and would have taken immediate action. Microsoft now claims that it just wants to get us to clean up our act, but its draconian actions have affected millions of innocent Internet users.

Vitalwerks and No­IP have a very strict abuse policy. Our abuse team is constantly working to keep the No-­IP system domains free of spam and malicious activity. We use sophisticated filters and we scan our network daily for signs of malicious activity. Even with such precautions, our free dynamic DNS service does occasionally fall prey to cyber scammers, spammers, and malware distributors. But this heavy-handed action by Microsoft benefits no one. We will do our best to resolve this problem quickly.
Have any questions or comments? Please do not hesitate to open a Support Ticket or give us a call at 775.853.1883.

I'd say keep yours down until you square away whatever you need to fury. I've noticed your server has been more unstable/spiky than it used to be
(yours used to be the only server i played on because of how great the connection was and how little it crashed). The Linux servers have come back up and are actually pretty reliable, and the ZL servers seem to be improved. It's really only Bob server that has constant crashing.

I hate no-ip's response blaming Microsoft... its pretty obvious their service was being used by several botnets this entire time.... how about taking action and not just throwing a fit when someone else else.

So annoying... irresponsible hosting services are a real problem.
