Can't access own website.

  justjill 18:16 03 Feb 2009


I recently set up a website with Hostroute and have experienced a lot of downtime. Yesterday we were unable to view our website at all or access it by FTP and a test email we sent to it came back as "DNS Error: Domain name not found". I have submitted a ticket to Hostroute's helpdesk and all they have done is ask what errors I'm getting (which I'd already told them) and close the ticket without helping me.

Curiously, my husband was able to access the domain from an internet cafe this afternoon but I still can't access it at home.

Is there something we have done wrong at home? It was fine the previous day and we could access it via FTP. Why can't we see our own website from home? Any ideas?

Any suggestions for more helpful web hosts would also be welcome!

Thanks :)

This Post would be better in the Webdesign Forum on the left of this page.

Also you could put a link to your Website in your Post.

If you do take my advice, you should Green-tick this one as Resolved to save confusion
