Microsoft knocks down my NO-IP subdomains
This morning I tried to connect to some devices on my home network remotely only to find that they appeared to be offline. My first thought was that there was an issue with my home Internet connection, but after quick troubleshooting it appeared that all of my no-ip.org subdomains were not resolving.
I logged on to my no-ip account and found a formal statement explaining that Microsoft sized some of the most popular no-ip domain names!
