UPDATE: The power outage referenced below has been resolved and all ARIN services are operational.
As of 16:00 EDT ARIN's main data center in Chantilly, VA, is without power and operating on backup power generation. All external Internet services are available. In the event external power is not restored by 19:00 EDT, ARIN will begin an orderly shutdown of services. Such a shutdown will affect ARIN Online, email template submissions, payment submissions, phone service, and ARIN's web site. Both DNS and Whois services will not be affected as they will be serviced from auxiliary data centers.
In the event a shutdown is required, a shutdown notice will be sent.
Currently Registration Services and Financial Services Help Desks are available by phone, but there may be longer than expected delays in responses from staff.
