Unscheduled downtime [resolved]

Dear all,

http://chilp.it and http://chilp.me are currently down,
there seems to be a problem at the DC. We are looking into it.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update: Why not take a look at http://uptime.chilp.net while waiting?
Update II: We are back up, the problem has been taken care of. The power supply of the main server needed to be changed.

Feel free to contact me to get a more detailed update and probably a beer too.

Cheers,
Zalt

Update III: Our provider confirms a power cut and is working on it: “The room was cut! We are on the site to reboot the room.”
Update IV:  We are still experiencing problems with the server config and are trying to resolve it.
Update V: Services are coming back to life. Thanks a lot for your patience.

Final update: All services have been restored. No short URL’s have been harmed in the procedure.

Uh-oh [Update]

Dear all,

our happy sites http://chilp.it and http://chilp.me are currently down and, to be honest, it’s my fault.
Well, I moved a couple of OTHER domains from one hosting company to another today and I “accidently” changed the A record of those two sites, too.

I already reverted the changes but it might take some time to propagate to your favorite DNS server since the TTL was set to 10800 seconds at that time.

I am very sorry for the trouble.

Update: Traffic is coming back. Happy shortening!

Cheers,
Zalt

Malware attack?

Dear all,

we were experiencing a high traffic situation over the last few days which is slowing down today. It all started when ~50 seemingly random URLs mostly registered at Free Domain Hosters were shortened through our our happy URL shortener http://chilp.it last weekend.

Since all of this domains where shortened within a short amount of time and were sporting the distinctive pattern “/s.php” we found out about it and blocked those probably malicious URLs.

We most likely wouldn’t have given those blocked URLs a second thought but they received so much clicks our traffic load tripled over the last couple of days. Although we don’t know the nature of the attack we like to warn you about it and decided to publish those URLs here. Feel free to contact us if you got any questions.

Stay safe,
Cheers,
Zalt

New services coming soon

Dear all,

we’re heavily working on new services and will release an open beta of a fresh product soon. At this point I’m still not allowed to tell what it’s exactly about but I promise you’ll like it. ;-)
Oh, and it has nothing to do with short URLs…

Stay tuned,
Cheers,
Zalt
