    How websites registered to Lebanon’s country code domain almost disappeared from the web

    The national network was saved at the last moment from a financial crisis that has been crippling the country for two years. To understand how things got here, we must trace this Lebanese-style administrative fiasco.

    The digital security expert Shakeeb al-Jabri learned from an email sent to his spam folder a few months ago that his cousin’s Lebanon-based company was at risk of having its website deactivated. The email said he had to register with a new payable registrar — an intermediary company certified by the main domain name registry (DNS) to provide registration services to website owners and modify domain names, or web addresses.

    nslookup -q=ns lb.

    Non-authoritative answer:
    lb nameserver = rip.psg.com.
    lb nameserver = zeina.aub.edu.lb.
    lb nameserver = fork.sth.dnsnode.net.
    lb nameserver = ns4.seacomnet.com.
    lb nameserver = nn.uninett.no.
    lb nameserver = ns3.seacomnet.com.
    lb nameserver = ns-jp.lbdr.org.lb.


    So, it technically exists.

    However, on a spot view, I was indeed unable to find anything working:

    host www.gov.lb rip.psg.com
    Using domain server:
    Name: rip.psg.com
    Address: 147.28.0.39#53
    Aliases:

    Host www.gov.lb not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)


    host www.edu.lb rip.psg.com
    Using domain server:
    Name: rip.psg.com
    Address: 147.28.0.39#53
    Aliases:

    Host www.edu.lb not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)


    host www.nic.lb rip.psg.com
    Using domain server:
    Name: rip.psg.com
    Address: 147.28.0.39#53
    Aliases:

    Host www.nic.lb not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
