Possibly related DDoS attacks cause DNS hosting outages

the past few days, slammed the DNS servers of at least three providers of
domain name management and DNS hosting services.

  LOL.  I get to typing so fast that sometimes a letter won't catch.  I'm still breaking in this new ergo-keyboard of mine.  I'll see if it will let me add a D.....   :-[

EDIT:  Yay, it worked!   :P
