Since 7/5/2006 to now the website is unreachable. This is due to a DNS problem. Admin is aware of it and is working the problem. If you are having no problems during this time that is because you have a cached DNS lookup or have a listing in your hosts file.


P.S. From a morbid point of view I find this fascinating. The domain is registered and active, the nameservers on the registration are correctly resolving the site IP and the nameservers themselves correctly resolve. I can only presume the problem is with the root hint servers and will be fixed when they update.

Feels really odd being the only one online here right now. I'm sure it will be fixed soon.

Enforcer,

I have added "216.55.165.19 www.nissanmurano.org " as per your email. Now it works!

Still as Eric noticed it feels funny to be only person accessing this site now....

risaralda,
sorry to hear it. My FX got damaged over the weekend as well. Some stupid bastard tried to park backwards.......I was lucky as it took me only half of Sunday to get it to almost like new shape.

Hope your Murano will get fixed shortly.

Couldn't the Admin email this information to the members? I too got the instructions from Fresh Alloy. :) Nice people they are over there.

I know, I posted this out there! ;)

Anyway, as I understand the issues is with Internet DNS that need to be updated. It somehow takes a long time.....

Admin sending email - it may and may not work. It did not work on my work computer as we are using proxy that is blocking it. Still if Admin emailed it to forum members at least some of them would be able to get on the site again...


Enforcer,
could you IM Admin.

Thanks

Not sure why it takes a number of days for a DNS update. I can register a new URL and it propagates around the net fairly fast.

Anyway, I updated the localhost text on my PC as suggested and it works fine for me.

Thanks to whoever posted that on www.freshalloy.com.

Looks like we got a few people back on here now. I've been trying to contact admin to let him know about this, will keep everyone posted. Enforcer has been checking on the issue (well, as much as an outside user could) and will contact / has contacted admin as well. This will be fixed soon (fingers crossed) hopefully.

I noticed the Freshalloy admin didn't like us posting a temporary fix for the .org on their forum....:D :D :D

The DNS should oot take that long to refresh. There has to be a config error. Is it a Windows based DNS server or Linux? Did you change providers?

FINALLY!!!

O.K. We know there is a problem. What is the solution? How do we prevent a recurrence?

Root servers still won't resolve, admin knows. I went through this myself years ago. Really a pain. They used to update twice a week they may update more frequently. But we're beyond that now. I think there is a problem between his registrar and the internic. Anytime you change your DNS servers or registrars this can happen, oh how I know this all too well. You would like to think its easy. If you could just get in there and do it yourself it'd be fixed. Not so easy with all the registrars involved. Most of the time they go through without too much of a hitch, but you can always bet on a day or two downtime. The longest one I had took a week.

Enforcer-

You obviously know what you are talking about. Is there a "fix" for this? Or will it be an ongoing problem?

I tried to get an answer from the ADMIN via direct email but I never got a response.
