If The Site Doesn’t Load December 14, 2011Posted by ismywebsite in general.
Right now, I’m receiving reports that some of you find the site to be offline. I have confirmed there are in fact some DNS issues. These are not universal, but only affecting some people. While I work to fix these, there is a workaround if you’re using Windows and are the administrator on your computer:
1) Start > Programs > Accessories, Right Click Notepad, then click ‘Run As Administrator’.
2) Open the file ‘C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc/hosts’. You can use Ctrl + Alt + S to save a backup of this file in case you do something wrong.
3) Add the following 4 lines to the bottom of the file and save it:
This will cause your computer to skip the DNS lookup and directly attempt to access our site at the correct IP. If you are unable to do the above, then thanks for your patience as I work to fix this.
