re: Network Solutions Outage: Third Time Not Charming
Almost as bad as trying to get cleared off Spamhaus or other blacklist maintainers. I've seen them snare in innocent companies by blacklisting entire subnets leaving ISPs and the individual companies to find work around solutions or wait the 48-72 hours to process the removal. I'm not defending NetSol, as an ISP they should have control over the domains/hosts/subnets they control.

Ever try to leave Network Delusions? They make it nearly impossible to transfer domain names away. They are evil.

Better communication about what's going on would certainly help but I can't imagine many customers putting up with so more outages and security problems.

What NS doesn't understand is that their customers pay a PREMIUM for their services. Certainly GoDaddy, Dyn, others are cheaper. Because we are paying a premium, we expect that these issues are mitigated and that NS is very open and honest about what is going on. To add insult to injury, there were facebook and twitter advertisements about NS email services, during the email outage. DDOS attack prevention should be commonplace now and I can certainly understand how fluid the resolution must be. Simple, honest communication, in a very timely manner, is what keeps your customers in a crisis situation. NS has not done that and from that behavior I can only assume that NS doesn't understand that these outages cost their customers real money and lost opportunity.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
