Thread: Board Issue...

  1. #1

    Default Board Issue...

    I've been getting this off and on all day:

    This site can’t be reached

    www.vcfed.org’s server DNS address could not be found.

    ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED



    And when I ping:

    Ping request could not find host vcfed.org. Please check the name and try again.

    Its been the same for me Stone. Last couple hours, I cannot connect to the site or the forum. And when I can connect and try to send or reply I get the hourglass and it times out half the time. Something is wrong it seems.

    I'm not sure it is vcf-form problem. I've seen this on other sites as well. My suspect is it is your internet provider giving band width to video streaming.

    So multiple ISPs are acting in concert? Highly unlikely.

    Not a big deal, but I lost my password today and had to login.

    If your DNS server is not resolving our address then it is an ISP issue. (The address clearly resolves for other people and we haven't made any configuration changes.)

    I wonder what folks are using for DNS? I'd suggest Google (8.8.8.8 ) or OpenDNS (208.67.222.222) as your DNS, or really anything but your cable providers DNS as those are notoriously bad (among other privacy related issues, not that there aren't privacy issues with google DNS either but it's likely better than the government monitored ISPs).

    Interesting; it's working for me now, but this morning I got an error trying to connect to the server (not a DNS error.)

    Doesn't mean it's not a site specific issue. The zone has to be hosted somewhere - usually either on the same network as the web site or a registrar.

    The ISP I use isn't the biggest and sometimes they are the focus of DDoS attacks that can cause this type of intermittent behavior. I haven't had any issues today with this site. (I use Google for my DNS resolver).
