I am not able to access Namesilo.com website either for the past 3 days. I have a few hundred domains there and it's really stressful.

It would be funny, if they came from epik.
Good luck to you, mate.
Do you reside in the US; if you dont mind me asking? β€”Will @namesilo anyway.

I will check my NameSilo now and let all know!

NameSilo is a Canadian Registrar.
Thank Goodness, their Canadian part works :)

US and Canada: i can confirm no problems
I wonder if this is for NameSilo’s global users?

It's been working for me but you got me worried thinking I should go there and renew a bunch of domains in case it goes down.

Hi Samer,
This appears tp be an India specific issue. I have started to work with Namesilo support and they have been very helpful. Even they have been caught unawares.

Hi Daniel, Good idea to keep the domains renewed at least by 15 days or so. That would give enough buffer to figure out solutions in contingencies like this

India specific issue confirmed by namesilo support.

It is apparently related to the DNS services in India not pointing correctly to NameSilo.
The official NameSilo Twitter account posted about 12 hr ago confirming this. Until resolved, they suggested that one workaround was to use Google Public DNS for those who feel comfortable setting that up. They have not posted since then about the problem as far as I can see.

Is their any update on this? Have they tried to resolve the issue? I've same problem (from India) and can't access namesilo. One of my domain has just expired. Need to access namesilo asap to renew it.

Edit: Have used Google dns to resolve the issue for time being

Namesilo still doesn't resolve in India.

This is not related to the .in registry issue as confirmed by Namesilo support. I believe it's a legal issue related to complaints by some petitioners in courts in India about inaction to their C&D requests for domain names they contend are infringing their rights.

The issue (dating to March 2023) involved many registrars, including Namecheap, Dynadot, Namesilo, and Crazydomains AFAIK.

As of Aug. 20, 2023,
Namesilo is not resolvable on any ISP;
Crazydomains is not resolvable on some ISPs;
Namecheap and Dynadot are resolvable on all ISPs, which means they must have complied.

Worked like a charm, thanks bob!
