RIPE Database Downtime

On 22 February, the RIPE Database went offline from 07:10 till 07:30 (UTC). 

This brief interruption to service follows a similar outage that occurred the previous morning (see service announcement from 21 February). We are continuing to investigate the cause. 

We apologise once again for any inconvenience caused by these outages.

UPDATE (11:05 UTC, 22 February): In continuing to investigate the issue, we have experienced further intermittent outages between 10:30 and 11:00 (UTC). We will be updating this announcement as we continue to address the problem.

UPDATE (19:35 UTC, 22 February): We are still experiencing intermittent outages. Whois port 43 is still up but the web interfaces are not. We will update this service announcement once the problem is resolved.

UPDATE (09:10 UTC, 23 February): All services/APIs except for fulltext search are fully operational since 20:15 UTC, 22 February. Investigation shows that the issue is load-related and caused by the fulltext search API. This feature has been disabled until further notice.
