GEO website is temporarily down
« on: January 25, 2011, 06:43:46 »
I am having a bit of a tussle with our web hosting company right now, and they have disabled our domain. I hope it will be resolved shortly.

Really? www.geocachersofeasternontario.com? It's not working for me yet... Not a good sign as I am the domain admin...  :-[

No, I don't see it either, just a domain parking site....

I see it. Looks like there is a DNS cache problem (either those who got the old IP can see the site, or the other way around).

Code: [Select]
C:\Documents and Settings\Christian>nslookup www.geocachersofeasternontario.com
Server:  dns1.videotron.ca
Address:  24.200.241.37

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    geocachersofeasternontario.com
Address:  69.65.119.148
Aliases:  www.geocachersofeasternontario.com

It seems the domain had been renewed today, so there may be hiccups in the process if it wasn't "owned" for a split second (or a few hours):

Code: [Select]
   Domain Name: GEOCACHERSOFEASTERNONTARIO.COM
   Registrar: DIRECTI INTERNET SOLUTIONS PVT. LTD. D/B/A PUBLICDOMAINREGISTRY.COM
   Whois Server: whois.PublicDomainRegistry.com
   Referral URL: http://www.PublicDomainRegistry.com
   Name Server: NS1.HOSTBARON.COM
   Name Server: NS2.HOSTBARON.COM
   Status: ok
   Updated Date: 25-jan-2011
   Creation Date: 24-jan-2010
   Expiration Date: 24-jan-2012

I said it was working but I stand corrected..  I just read a message on the forums, and upon a refresh to see the other "unread" thread I got booted to some other site and couldn't find my way back to the forums again.

Apparently it depends on your ISP and how long they cache domain name server settings. I can't get in from my office, but will try something at home. I am hoping that this will all be resolved tomorrow.

What a pain!   >:(

Yah, I can't get to it from work either...  Same computer, different ISP apparently. What a nuisance!

Let this be a lesson to all who own websites: renew your domain name early!

Same thing happened with one of my websites last week.  I forgot to renew it, it started to get removed from DNS servers but that took a while to propagate.  Even after I renewed the domain, it took a while to get back up again for everyone, and Google dropped us in its search results for a few days.  Oops.
