OpenCorporates Performance issues

10:15 We are aware of ongoing performance issues affecting the opencorporates.com website.

Please bear with us while we investigate.

=====

12:10 We have identified the cause of the problem to be a problem caused by misconfiguration of our DNS services in advance of our planned maintenance. This was causing an outage for many visitors, with only 1 out of 3 DNS servers providing the correct IP addresses.

The problem has been worked around temporarily, with a full fix to follow.

We apologize for the interruption to service and thank you for your patience.

=====

The root cause has been identified and corrected.
