The first blackout in .ro

The RNC nameserver (rotld.ro) had severe problems and was out for 2 hours – this meant that many romanian websites had dns errors and everybody was fuzzy over this. My first thoughts were about the hosting and as I called our providers they explained the whole situation.
An important fact to notice is that RNC (controlled by the Romanian Government) has limited schedule and they get many complaints as they close at 16:00 every day. I’m not affected by this on daily basis but it seems that many romanian web hosting companies have trouble adjusting to the RNC policy. I remember one time I had to wait almost 2 months for a transaction in order to buy a domain (from a RNC partner).
Although they had the problems with the namserver, there was no press release and no news on the official website.
