DNS issues on WordPress.org

Hi folks, there’s a known issue with the DNS for WordPress.org. Things may go haywire while we work to bring things back to normal.

Update, 6:23 PM ET — Proper DNS has been restored for WordPress.org.

This was the mistake of an upstream provider, not the result of any hack.

No, we didn’t undergo a redesign. If you’re still seeing a site that is decidedly not WordPress.org, it may take a while for the site to be restored for you.

You can try these commands from the command line to flush your local DNS cache. DNS is tricky, and can get cached on your computer, on your router, or even by your ISP. Please be patient while the DNS propagates.
