Hipcast has been experiencing a DNS issue where some visitors are being redirected to another site.

We fixed the original issue within 30 minutes of it occurring, but DNS is pretty slow with ancillary updates, so we expect that within an hour or two, the new DNS information should be distributed properly across the Internet.

Based on bandwidth usage and logs, this appears to be affecting about 5% of users. We apologize for this issue and we’re doing everything we can to correct it.

Please be aware that if you cannot get to your podcast, or the audios and videos on your blog are not playing for you, it does not mean that others can’t get to them. Only 5% of the network requests are being mis-routed, which means that 95% are being handled properly.
