Tue Oct 2 18:23:10 PDT 2001 — Update on .info registrations. From our upstream, OpenSRS:
Real-time .info registration update: We have been advised by the .info registry operator (Afilias) that the emergency maintenance window will continue longer than originally anticipated. This means that no-one will be able to register or manage .info names until further notice. We have been informed that an announcement regarding resumption of normal registry operations will be made at around 09:00 EST (13:00 UTC) October 3rd. We will announce any further information as it becomes available.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause you.
Scott Allan, Director, OpenSRS

Sonic.net’s tools are showing that .info is open, but I’m finding that in most cases, requests are timing out. It does not appear that they have resolved their technical problems yet, but do keep trying if you’ve got .info names that you want. Some Sonic.net customers have managed to get .info domains registered during times the registry has been up. -Dane
