Some sites not working?

Hi,
Today some sites I have been unable to load, then 5 minutes later able to.
Since I know they are up (mates on other ISP`s blah blah can get onto it) is there some trouble down PlusNets side?
The sites are visitable, it just annoying when it says it cant be found and to try again, only to work a few mins later, and then break again.

Regards.

Hi there,

There was a problem with the DNS servers I noticed about an hour or so ago that would cause this but it has been resolved by one of the networks guys who happened to be working late.

Are you still seeing the problem?

I can confirm that I'm experiencing the same problem (which is why I popped in the forums as there was nothing on the service status - the forums are SO much more up to date, darling).

Also can't reach my plus net site:
http://cgi.tomandlu.co.uk/cgi-bin/links1.cgi

but can reach:
http://www.tomandlu.co.uk/

Same here, but 212.159.6.9 seems to be answering okay:
C:\Documents and Settings\Phil Light>nslookup www.paraxial.co.uk 212.159.6.9

Server: ptn-cdns-01.plus.net
Address: 212.159.6.9

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: cgi.plus.net
Address: 212.159.3.3
Aliases: www.paraxial.co.uk

C:\Documents and Settings\Phil Light>nslookup www.paraxial.co.uk 212.159.13.49
Server: pth-cdns-01.plus.net
Address: 212.159.13.49

*** pth-cdns-01.plus.net can't find www.paraxial.co.uk:; Server failed


I've posted to this thread rather than the other one since this appears to be a problem with the DNS server (and not Level3) as this domain is hosted by PlusNet.

Can you please post any DNS related problems in this thread so we can keep the discussion to a single thread to ease PlusNets access to details. There is also more details about what has been happening in that thread. Thanks.

It also contains details of alternate PlusNet DNS servers you can use while they fix the main ones.
