123-Reg, who are currently the UKs largest domain supplier, are currently under a massive DDoS attack (Distributed Denial of Services) which have taken an estimated 3 million web sites down due. The attack is allegedly coming from China. The attack seems to be focused of the DNS names servers.

Quite why they decided to get people to check their support page when it also fails to load is a bit stupid. If you want to be kept up to date, then checking their Twitter account or Facebook would be better.

The attack started at around 11:00hrs GMT this morning.
