For the past week and a half I haven’t been able to access my website from home. It’s SO FRUSTRATING. I can access every other website, but not ninedarkmoons.com. I get this instead:
We can’t access it from hubby’s laptop or the desktop upstairs, either. However, we CAN access it from our phones if we aren’t going through the wifi. And I can access it from work [not that I do, of course…], so I know it’s working. I also found this great website last week where you can see if your website is down for everyone or just you:
Hubby also rebooted the wireless router, and went around it to see if we could access my site in the DMZ [I have no idea what that means] – no luck. Hubby also taught me how to turn on “Internet Sharing” on my smart phone, which allows me to connect to my website, using my laptop, via my phone. I have NO idea how that works, but for short time periods, like now, it’s letting me on.
I have contacted Verizon numerous times during the past week and a half, and they’re stumped. I have done trace routes [and sent them to Verizon], I have refreshed my DNS – hubby showed me how – he’s “supah smaht” [said in a Boston accent] like that. I have googled “can access all websites except one” and found lots of hits, many in the same situation I’m in, with no viable solutions. I’ve tried everything suggested by other desperate bloggers [deleting all the crap in my “hosts” file, changing my website password, deleting all cookies, etc. from both Chrome & Firefox, rebooting, defragging my hard drive], and NOTHING has worked. GAH!!!!!!!!!
Even more confusing, there are brief time periods where I CAN access it, like earlier tonight:
But it’s very short lived, and then it’s straight back to:
On the plus side, I made an AWESOME butternut squash mac n’ cheese last night [with chunks of crumbled fresh buttermilk blue cheese melted on top]:
Hubby surprised me with beautiful orange lilies and roses on Tuesday *happy squeak*:
And the groundhog [aka “whistle pig”] is back for the unsalted peanuts we tossed out the back door:
As of today [Sunday] it’s STILL BROKEN. So frustrated. Thankfully it comes up a few times here and there, so it’s not constantly down, but WTF.
The site has been working great for about 3 weeks now… fingers crossed it stays that way!!!
