Can't access some sites

http://www.steelbattalion.co.uk

i visit this site often but every week or so or couple of days sometimes i get "this page cannot be displayed" for a day or two.

One guy said something about it being to do with my settings and php or mysql (i cant reach the quote as it's somewhere on the forums on that site that i now cant access!)

My friend said it may be to do with my ISP.

Any help is really appreciated. Can you all access that site? i can't atm.

Yes I can access it but it is slow to find the site.
Once it's been found it opens up quite quickly.

Can't access some sites

Looks like there is a problem with Plusnets main DNS servers (212.159.13.49 and .50 doing a lookup for this domain:

1	www.steelbattalion.co.uk	ALL 	Query sent to	212.159.13.49

1 11004 ERROR Name server failed
1 Lookup complete
2 www.steelbattalion.co.uk ALL Query sent to 212.159.13.50
2 10060 ERROR Connection timed out No reply within timeout
2 Lookup complete
3 www.steelbattalion.co.uk ALL Query sent to 212.159.13.50
3 11004 ERROR Name server failed
3 Lookup complete
4 www.steelbattalion.co.uk ALL Query sent to 212.159.13.50
4 11004 ERROR Name server failed
4 Lookup complete


Doing the same lookup on their alternate DNS servers 13.150 & 13.151 gives the correct info:

5 www.steelbattalion.co.uk ALL Query sent to 212.159.13.150
5 www.steelbattalion.co.uk CNAME 5509 steelbattalion.co.uk
5 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 5512 NS1.HOSTINGNSTUFF.COM
5 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 5512 NS2.HOSTINGNSTUFF.COM
5 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 5512
5 Lookup complete
6 www.steelbattalion.co.uk ALL Query sent to 212.159.13.151
6 www.steelbattalion.co.uk CNAME 14400 steelbattalion.co.uk
6 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 14400
6 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 14400 NS1.HOSTINGNSTUFF.COM
6 steelbattalion.co.uk NS 14400


You need to raise a contact us ticket with the above info so PlusNet can investigate.

I have corrected my post above after further investigation:

It's plusnets DNS server which you are using (because you are connected to PlusNets network) and which the others users are not (if they are not using PlusNets ADSL).

If you set your DNS server IPs to 212.159.13.150 and .151 in Windows or your router you will be able to access the site.
