Updated July 22, 2018 05:08:33 Netflix’s DNS issues are not limited to its VPNs.
This week, Netflix was forced to pull its VPN-related services from the internet.
According to Netflix, it is investigating a DNS error that has affected some users and may result in a temporary loss of connectivity.
“We are aware of a DNS issue affecting some users that we are investigating and are working to resolve,” a Netflix spokesperson told Ars Technica.
“Unfortunately, we cannot provide further details at this time.
If you experience issues accessing Netflix, please contact us.”
Netflix is currently working on a fix for the DNS issue.
The company has not commented on the issue itself, but it did say it was working on adding DNS-based DNS services to the Netflix platform.
Netflix is also working to add VPNs to its own DNS service, but that process is far from finished.
A Netflix spokesperson explained that this is due to a technical issue.
“Netflix does not currently have an integrated VPN.
This is due in part to a network-level issue,” the spokesperson said.
“When the VPN is first established, it’s not connected to the upstream DNS servers.
This causes a DNS cache to be created and then a DNS server to be assigned to the VPN.
We are working with Netflix to integrate a DNS provider into the Netflix DNS service.”
Netflix has a history of implementing DNS-related features in its own products, such as its “Netflix” app and the Netflix Pass subscription service.
Netflix also introduced its own VPN and proxy service, the “VPNProxy,” in 2015.
Netflix’s announcement follows Netflix’s “Netflix Everywhere” app, which allows users to log into Netflix from anywhere in the world using an internet connection.
The app also offers a VPN to protect users’ privacy.
Netflix has said that it is working to address the issue on its own by introducing a DNS-enabled version of the app.
Netflix announced last week that it was introducing a new DNS service in 2019, but the company is still working to integrate VPNs and proxy services into the service.
