Several readers wrote in to note that the .de domain (Germany), which is operated by DENIC , had an unplanned outage earlier that lasted a bit over an hour.
There is no official statement yet, but according to one source , a bad zone file was loaded and it took a while to fix.
Currently, .de domains appear to be reachable again.

The outage looks like it was from approximately 13:30 to 15:30 local time (CEST)
