Internet over the world may experience some network failures as Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will carry out maintenance over the next 48 hours.

Today Russia reported that internet users over the world might experience some network connection failures as the domain name servers (DSP), as well as the linked network infrastructure, will be turned off for operation and maintenance.

In a statement, the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) said the global internet shutdown is necessary for ensuring a secure, stable and resilient DNS. "To further clarify, some internet users might be affected if their network operators or Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have not prepared for this change. However, this impact can be avoided by enabling the appropriate system security extensions," it added.

COMMENTInternet users could face difficulties in accessing web pages or making any transactions in the next 48 hours. Also, users could face inconvenience accessing the global network if they use an outdated ISP.
