Important notice for Gitlab Pages users

    Yesterday, some users of Gitlab Pages may have been confronted with the fact that their sites have stopped opening. For example, I received a notification about this from Yandex Metrics on Mon, Aug. 27, 19:20.

    And at night the notice came from Gitlab, the text of the letter:

    If you have something on Gitlab Pages, check the health of the pages now, you probably also need to make changes to the DNS record.

    UPD Now found that the IP change was information August 22, 2018 in a blog . And also on July 19, 2018 .
