SpotWalla DNS Changes

Over the past few days a lot of y'all have been experiencing difficulties getting to spotwalla.com while others haven't had any issues at all. The root cause isn't that spotwalla.com is down, but because the name servers that translate "spotwalla.com" into its internet address have been involved in a series Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

Yesterday, we added a third name server into spotwalla.com's internet configuration, but this hasn't alleviated the issues like I had hoped. So this morning I moved the name servers from ZoneEdit.com to NetworkSolutions.com. These changes can take up to 36 hours to propagate throughout the internet, but eventually this should fix the problems some of y'all are experiencing.

If you've been experiencing issues, please check access periodically and let me know the status.

My apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
