EDIT: This issue has been resolved, and our domain is functioning again.
We’re sorry to inform you that robosane.zapto.org has been taken offline due to actions by Microsoft. The domain
robosane.tk robosane.net wil still remain functioning and it serves the same purpose as robosane.zapto.org. We are sorry for any inconvenience. If you wish to know more about why, please read further on this article.
Just to remind everyone reading this, we as a company are using solely open-source Operating Systems, namely Ubuntu, and we are not vulnerable to any kind of Windows or Mac viruses, trojans, or malware.
All of our servers are completely unaffected by this change, and they all will remain available through
robosane.tk robosane.net no matter the issue.
This is the notification we recieved from No-Ip informing us about the domain confiscation by Microsoft:
We want to update all our loyal customers about the service outages that many of you are experiencing today. This is NOT A TECHINCAL ISSUE WITH NO-IP.
This morning, Microsoft served a federal court order and seized 22 of our most commonly used domains because they claimed that some of the subdomains have been abused by creators of malware. We were very surprised by this. We have a long history of proactively working with other companies when cases of alleged malicious activity have been reported to us. Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of communication with Microsoft corporate executives.
We are working through the night on an alternative solution to resolve these issues. Please know that we are on your side with this issue and are doing everything we can to resolve it as quickly as possible. You can also read our formal response on our blog.
After you read it, please to share it on Twitter and tag your responses with #FreeNoIP.
We aren't asking you to respond in any way, however, the best way you can help is when a friend asks "Is Robosane down?" please inform them of this unfortunate occurrence.
