HEADS UP (Y2K redux?): Will 100,000+ web sites go dark tomorrow due to their non-compliant DNS implementation?

Jim Stone, Freelance Journalist

Hundreds of thousands of web sites to go down tomorrow?

Rumor has it that an IVP4 issue is going to cause countless web sites to go offline tomorrow, some of them permanently. I therefore announce right now that I have already tested this site and if it is an issue for anyone, it won't be an issue for this site, which is totally compliant with the new standards.

I doubt it will go down but even if it does, people can still get to it via 82.221.129.208 which IVP4 has no impact on. I did it that way for a reason. There's no reason for it to go down tomorrow but if they try to pull that crap (they did it before already once a couple years ago) the direct IP access will still work. That's what saved it last time - at the peak of their attack which saw this site removed from DNS entirely, traffic only dropped by 45 percent and that was not enough, they want their targets gone in one whack and can't bear the scrutiny of having someone mostly alive and shouting about it.

Tomorrows problem is more like Y2K than anything, and that was a flop. So most likely nothing will happen that anyone notices. However, if any site you go to goes down tomorrow, this will be the reason.

Here is exactly what is going to happen tomorrow, from DNSflagday.net.

"The current DNS is unnecessarily slow and inefficient because of efforts to accommodate a few DNS systems that are not in compliance with DNS standards established two decades ago.

To ensure further sustainability of the system it is time to end these accommodations and remediate the non-compliant systems. This change will make most DNS operations slightly more efficient, and also allow operators to deploy new functionality, including new mechanisms to protect against DDoS attacks.

DNS software and service providers listed on this site have agreed to coordinate removing accommodations for non-compliant DNS implementations from their software or services, on or around February 1st 2019. This change will affect only sites operating non-compliant software."

My comment: So a few lazy server operators will be going down tomorrow. It is predicted this adds up to hundreds of thousands of web sites. But this site has already been proven to work quite well without DNS anyway, because so many people have the IP saved and it is configured to cause direct access, which is unusual, even Drudge and others won't work with direct IP. I did it that way because I figured this site would be taken down if I did not, and they already tried and failed. Once again, there's no reason for this site to vanish tomorrow, it is totally compliant and on top of that, has direct IP backup for those who have the direct IP (and that's a lot of people)

I'd also like to re-state: This is probably a big nothing-burger. I don't think anyone (in general) will notice anything at all, but it is worth giving a heads up for.
