      Is there a problem with DNS?

      I have been unable to resolve the correct IP4 address for www.skyuser.co.uk using my usual DNS settings supplied by DHCP.
      Instead of 77.240.11.51 I am getting 81.200.64.50
      Just wondered if anyone else was having this problem?

      Re: Is there a problem with DNS?

      We inadvertently forgot to renew the domain and when we tried to fasthosts couldn't find our account.

      Therefore we changed registrars and that was the reason for the longetivity of the downtime.

      Sorry.

      I thought it was strange that my routers dns lookup gave the correct address, which i could ping, but couldn't load any skyuser page.

      Re: Is there a problem with DNS?

      I was weird indeed. I was able to access the forum from both my laptop and mobile, yet others were unable to.

      At least it is sorted out now.

      Thank you Ged and Glenn.

      It was good of Fasthosts to give you a months grace period before pulling the plug.
      I wonder if Go Daddy would do the same or is this an industry wide concession?
