In the second attack of its kind in the past few days, Domain Name System (DNS) servers at Network Solutions Inc. were hit by a denial-of-service attack this afternoon, resulting in a brief performance degradation for customers, according to the company.

The attacks, which started at around 2:20 p.m. EST, were targeted at the company’s WorldNIC name servers and resulted in a service degradation for about 25 minutes before the server was restored to normal, a spokeswoman for the company said.
