On July 10th, 2016, DNS History will be shut down due to "funding issues".
On the main page, on the right:
- "This site will shut down on the 10th July 2016 due to funding issues."
There has been no further annoucement which we have been able to find at this time, the operators have not replied, and the forums are inaccessible.
A scrape of all TLDs which are crawled by DNS History currently is available here.

Lack of cooperation
After ArchiveTeam started the project, dnshistory.org staff shortly activated CloudFlare in order to block our access to the site.
user:bzc6p contacted them asking for cooperation, but they replied that "there is no way you can archive the >billion pages on the site and trying to do so is causing issues for other users on the site."
Server errors also occur since then.
