CGI address not resolving?

Hello,

I've just been informed by one of my website users that none of the CGI-powered pages work anymore. Sure enough...ccgi.nkhughes.plus.com is no longer available or ping-able.

I can FTP into my CGI site and all the files seem to be there, so has anything changed recently with regard to CGI hosting?

Fix

It looks like the DNS CNAME entry for your ccgi website has been removed. This is maintained by Plusnet.

If I go to your site using its IP I get a "no pages have been uploaded yet" response. That suggests the server is aware of your site but none of your content is in the /public website root.

Thanks for the info - I guess something's broken because I haven't been informed of any changes to my account. Some of my CGI scripts log time and date so I know everything was working until a few months ago. I've sent a query to PlusNet.

Apparently the DNS records did need updating and my static HTML site can now see the Perl scripts on the CGI server again.
