Cannot get to rapidgator.net

Can do an nslookup, but cannot load the login page, and I use it to move stuff around.
Tested from work on a different connection and on my iPhone and loads ok.

Re: Cannot get to rapidgator.net

Should also say on Fibre, and using 212.159.6.10 and 212.159.6.9 for dns

Re: Cannot get to rapidgator.net

And now cannot get to halifax.co.uk or resolve it, or even plus.net
Having to post this from my Work PC!
Located in Kent, me thinks there is a routing issue.

Actually its a lot of sites that are randomly there, then not.  examples
nslookup rapidgator.net

For the first bit you are doing a traceroute on the wrong ip (should be 195. not 192.).
nslookup on scan.co.uk works fine here - if you change server in nslookup directly to 212.159.6.10 does it work then (assuming windows just start a command prompt, type nslookup, then 'server 212.159.6.10' at the prompt, then just type the host to lookup)?  If not, try changing server to 8.8.8.8 (google dns server) just to see if that works.

Re: Cannot get to rapidgator.net

Yeah noticed the ip and tried again, have tried opendns level3 and google direct, it is like a routing issue.

Re: Cannot get to rapidgator.net

Hi bradkb,
I'm guessing the hashed out addresses were those of your router? If not, had you specified one of our DNS servers to do the lookup?
If you could try the suggestions by clearx above, i.e. specifying 212.159.6.9 or 6.10 as the server, does that do the same thing? Likewise if you specify one of the google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4)?

Re: Cannot get to rapidgator.net

Already tried all that, tried Level3, OpenDNS, Google and more, same results.
Have opened a ticket and spoke to support.
