KCNA switches IP addresses

The recently-launched website of the Korea Central News Agency has jumped to a new IP address. This move explains some of the downtime the site has suffered in the last few days.

The site can now be accessed at http://175.45.176.58. The DNS records haven’t been updated yet, so the star.edu.kp domain name doesn’t work at time of writing. It still points to the old address.

South Korea’s Internet firewall has also not yet been updated, so the site is currently accessible from South Korea. It had previously been blocked by Seoul.

The North Korean Website List has been updated with this information.
