Do you see this too?


I can do a DNS lookup fine for the domain:
InternetNamesForBusiness.com
But I just cannot connect to it in the browser.  Using my mobile I know the site is up but it just seems to be dropping all connections from me to it via broadband.
Wondering if it's just me or other PlusNet fibre users cannot access the domain?
Thanks,
JennyTells

I can also see it and my router isalso set to Google's DNS, I always find that the best DNS to have it set to in the router settings

Re: Do you see this too?

I'm set to use OpenNIC (seriously guys you should ditch Google for this!) and I am resolving the domain to 209.235.144.9 so I don't think it's a DNS problem.  This is very weird why I can't access it, or as it turns out, any of the domains this webhost has.
I guess it's not a PlusNet peering issue and the webhost must be actively blocking my IP Shocked  I'll try with a new one.  Thanks for checking, saved a ticket to PlusNet Smiley

I don't have any problem accessing the http://InternetNamesForBusiness.com website.
I have just checked four different DNSes, and they all come back with a different result than you are getting !

Perhaps that "OpenNIC"  DNS isn't as clever as they say it is !  Crazy
