DNS problem?

Another user and I are having the same problems accessing this site. We can get to it from some locations/computers, not from others. It appears to be a DNS problem. Just calling your attention to it in case there's anything you can do. Other users might not have the ability to try from other locations, or might not bother trying.

Re: DNS problem?

This morning before USA Central Daylight Time about 0830, I couldn't get to the site either, though other web sites I frequent were reachable on first try. I think that right now I'm at GMT+5.

Re: DNS problem?

FYI, I can now get to the site and ping it from the location I couldn't get to it from earlier. When I couldn't get to it earlier, I also couldn't ping it by name.

Re: DNS problem?

The site now seems to be working for me again.

Re: DNS problem?

First thing to try is flushing your machine's dns cache.

At an elevated command prompt:
Code:
ipconfig /flushdns
However I suspect that some dns server may have had problems.

Re: DNS problem?

Monday I could access the site from home but not work. Today it works fine from work, and at no point did I play with DNS settings or the cache.

My money's on a DNS server issue - it was acting for me just like it did when Google DNS had bad info for the site.
