Judging by reports the ccTLD of Syria(.sy) is having issues.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as the country has been having plenty of issues internally .. (a gross understatement!)
TechCrunch report that Art.sy are now redirecting to a .net domain, though they’re relying on a HTTP redirect (Can we say “doh!”?).
While that might work at *some* levels it’s not going to be of much use to them if the .sy domains stop resolving completely.
