MYNIC website and whois down on 1st March 2008

Just want to share with you that you will not be able to do Malaysia country level domain name whois queries on 1st March 2008 because Mynic will be conducting planned maintenance works on that day.


Received the following email a few moments ago:

Please be informed that MYNIC will be conducting planned maintenance works as below:

Date: 1st March 2007
Time: 08:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Please note that the MYNIC website and Whois service will be not available during the maintenance time. However, please note that all domain names registered with MYNIC will not be affected by this maintenance work.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail or call us at
03-89917272 if you have any query at all.

Did you notice the date? 2007! What a mistake to make here… But a check on Mynic’s website on this scheduled maintenance confirms it’s a mistake because on their website they have corrected it to 1st March 2008.

Not sure if you can still submit domain name registrations on that day?
