.co.za and whois.co.za offline

[South Africa – Apr 8. 2010] Both www.co.za (South African co.za Domain Registry) and whois.co.za (The .co.za Domain homepage and the co.za Whois Server (Registration Details)) are offline (at least on port 80, for normal web traffic) — here’s hoping it’s just a reboot / upgrade!

Aaaaaaaaaanyway…

whois.co.za.   86400   IN      CNAME   co.za.
co.za.         86400   IN      A       206.223.136.195

;; ANSWER SECTION:
195.136.223.206.in-addr.arpa. 86400 IN PTR ns0.coza.net.za.

Strange reverse-pointing domain names pointing back to the IP over at robtex – group5.co.za, citybrokers.co.za and some more X-rated ones, too… Hmmm…
