DNS provider ChangeIP cites MySQL database crash for days-long outage

ChangeIP, which refers to itself as a “rockstar, low-cost and high-touch web host,” has hit a sour note with customers over the past few days. The company on Monday afternoon reported that it “suffered a system wide DB failure that cascaded to all of our DB systems. Restore been on going since yesterday [Sunday, Dec. 11].” ChangeIP said that due to the size of its MySQL database, recovery was taking longer than anticipated and it was hard to say when a total restore would take place.
