On July 31, at approximately 9:00am E.S.T. Network Solutions Advanced DNS Manager (www.networksolutionsdns.com) hosting service was disrupted to our customers. The problem was immediately identified and resolved by 12:00pm E.S.T. The issue was internal and affected our primary Advanced DNS Manager service only. VeriSign's global DNS infrastructure, root servers, and all other services were unaffected.
Network Solutions publishes zone files on a 24/7 basis for our Advanced DNS Manager customers. A software glitch caused a truncated zone file to be sent out, which temporarily disrupted resolution. The problem has been fixed and we have taken actions to prevent any reoccurrence. Network Solutions deeply regrets the inconvenience to our Managed DNS customers.

I don't think anyone will argue this point, but lets face facts. Who the hell is going to buy it? If you find someone to buy it, how much do you think they'd be willing to pay? The business is declining. Prices will continue going down. There's lost of potential liability with latest court decision and class actions. I have to think they exhausted all avenues to dump that business and have now come to terms with the fact that it's not going anywhere. Lets move on.
