APNIC whois nodes in the US and UK were not available for the specified duration. The issue was caused by emergency maintenance on Friday where the US and UK nodes were withdrawn from the APNIC whois service pool. The withdrawal process did not go as expected and as a result whois request traffic was not redirected to other regions, consequently all whois queries in the affected regions did not receive whois responses.
We apologize for the loss of facilities and any inconvenience caused. Should you require assistance in dealing with any problems arising from this outage, please contact the APNIC Helpdesk.
