An invalid .is zone was dstributed to the .is secondary servers at 14:43 today. Due to a botched server upgrade the DNSSEC signatures on the .is zone were invalid. The problem was resolved by 15:20. This resulted in some validating-resolvers being unable to resolve .is names during this period.
Due to a software upgrade, the Web Forwarding service was unavailable for a short time today.
Today at 13:37 GMT our web was updated with a broken version. Our web was back online 13:59 GMT.
Note: this only affected https://www.isnic.is not our SOAP API or the dns service.
We're completing a DB hardware upgrade on Tuesday 10th March. The scheduled maintenance window is 06:00-08:00 GMT. During downtime, ISNIC's database is 'read-only'. This affects API and API-DEV as well. The expected break in service is 45 minutes.
ISNIC is undergoing an important software update. Domains waiting for update and for redelegation are on hold. Give us a few minuets!

Scheduled changes to databases and software this morning are done.

Around 20:15 we had IPv4 connection problems due to invalid carp configuration testing.
Sporiadic connection issues may have occurred between 16-17 GMT+0 today due to a faulty SFP in one of our routers.
During the web server replacement, the registrant transfer option may be delayed. Other services should not be affected.
Due to repairs on a fiber optic cable, ISNIC's phone service will be limited today, friday 28th June.
We will change how we store registrants in our database during a service window on September 30th. To do that we will take one of our databases offline sometime between 07:00 and 09:00 UTC. The database will be offline for about 60 min while we migrate data.
During the database migration we will take our website offline and that includes the SOAP API.
The SOAP API interface does not change though.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Breytingar á hegðun í fallinu checkDomain() verða gerðar á næstu dögum. Hingað til hefur fallið skilað 0 fyrir ólögleg lénanöfn, þar sem fallið hefur eingögnu athugað hvort lénið sé nú þegar skráð. Hin breytta virkni verður á þann veg að fallið mun skila -2 fyrir lénanöfn sem ekki eru lögleg. Það er því hægt að ganga út frá því að ef checkDomain skilar 0 þá sé lénið gilt og að hægt að skrá það.
Breytingarnar fara út á dev svæði í dag og er gert ráð fyrir að þær fari í production á næstu dögum.
Changes will be made to the function checkDomain() in the next couple of days. Until now the function has return 0 all invalid domainnames, since the function only checked if the domain was already registered. The new behaviour will be that -2 will be returned if the doman is not a valid .is domain. You can therefor assume that if checkDomain returns 0, that the domain is available and can be registered.
These changes will go to the dev servers today and we plan to move them to production in the next couple of days.

Dear ISNIC API users,
our API servers will be upgraded early next week. This is a OS upgrade and we're expecting very little service interruptions. The production API service should not be offline, but run on a backup server momentarily during the change.
We expect api-dev to be upgraded monday morning, before 12AM and upon successful operations for a day or so, we'll upgrade api (production) on wednesday morning, before 12AM.
Stýrikerfisuppfærslur á api og api-dev þjónum ISNIC verða framvæmdar á mánudag- og miðvikudag. Þar sem hægt er að nota varavél á meðan skipt er um vél fyrir API gerum við ráð fyrir mjög litlum truflunum.
