Hey all. I’ve been made aware that some users are seeing this site and the blog go down intermittently. I could use some help on what you are seeing as more folks are telling me of this problem and I just recently spotted it also.
For me, I cannot access the forum or the blog on my phone over mobile data. Wifi works just fine.
I’ve put in a support ticket to my host that’s handling the DNS so we’ll see what happens but if anyone has been unable to access these sites, I would appreciate some feedback to help troubleshoot.
I haven’t been able to access the site from my iphone X, on data plan for over a week, but I can on my ipad over wifi. When I try to access via my iphone it says “Safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found.”
My web host has flushed the DNS cache last night and they say these things could take up to 48 hours. I’m sitting tight, seeing if things straighten out over the weekend. If not good by Sunday, I’ll keep at it.
OK so far, there is definitely an issue with accessing it over Verizon 4G. I have found a workaround, it’s fairly simple, but I will continue to see what I can do so that all users can access it like it should work.
For the technical folks in the room, Verizon’s DNS must not be resolving dtraleigh.com correctly. If I use an app to use an alternate DNS (google’s for example) dtraleigh.com resolves just fine.
Here’s what I am using for Android. Choose the google DNS servers and connect. Then browse as normal. It’s pretty simple to use.
As for those that have the site blocked at their offices, well, that will probably be an even more difficult thing to solve. I know dtraleigh.com is blocked at my office so I feel for others.
Thanks @joe. I’ve done a few security scans of the site in the past and they all pass so I’ll have to dig deeper with regards to that. Who knows, maybe if I fix that then the site will start working at all these places.
