Mynic .my Technical Glitch

On the eve 16th of June 2018, Mynic DNS servers reportedly down due to issue with DNSSEC. The downtime apparently occurred during Hari Raya holiday – where most people were on Hari Raya holiday.
The issue was by a glitch with Mynic DNSSEC key while pushing zone information to IANA servers.1
The restoration was swift but DNS take time to propagate all over the internet. 2

Only one of our customers from oil and gas industries had difficulty sending emails from their vessels out in open sea via sat comm. We instructed them to switch to another DNS resolver to overcome this issue. (after mynic rectified  the problem)

Since May 2013, the number of active domain names dip below 2012 period.  The  high domain price contributed to the slow adoption of  .my country level extensions. For example domain name  yourname.my cost RM 120.00  –  three times higher than top level yourname.com. Other factors highlighted by by our customers is privacy protection.  .MY extension WHOIS  query is publicly available.  Many domain owners complained that they often  targeted with unsolicited email. Spammers often collect information from WHOIS from newly registered .my domains.  My extension domains also lack of DNS management interface. Top level domain providers often bundled this feature as complimentary or add on with minor charges.

Despite of the issues highlighted above, good names are still available for .my country domains. DataKL also can assist you to use your .my domains to help you to point to blogspot, Google Aps, tumbler and any other services without additional cost.
