Site Can't Be Reached

Recommended Posts

The last few days I've been having difficulty getting the site to come up. I intermittently get this message:

Anybody else having this problem? I'm using Windows 7 and Google Chrome.

Same here.

Clearing my browsing history in the control panels seems to have cleared it up.

I can’t find a rhyme for or reason. It works then it don’t. Sometimes my phone will work and my laptop won’t. Sometimes my desktop will and my laptop won’t. Sometimes my laptop works and my phone doesn’t. Sometimes it kicks me out in the middle of a post. No clearing seems to work , only waiting. Tried Chrome, Firefox, and my phone runs Safari.

I’m just post this so the moderators will have an idea of how odd this seems to be.

It would not work for me an hour ago.  I went to the site url and it opened.  This has been happening to me for two or three days now, seems more prevalent in the AM hours as opposed to PM hours.

Our hosting company ran into some Directory Name Service problems. It should be cleared up now, but you might have some locally stored information that isn't up to date yet. Clearing your browser cache, or rebooting the computer should clear the problem. 

Thanks,

I was having this problem too, using the bookmark icon on my Safari home page!  It's a conspiracy...... 😱

Working so far on this old PC. Last night, I couldn't get the site to pull at all. This old PC is running Windows XP, version 2002. Never had a glitch on the android phone, or the newer PC, which is a Windows 10 unit.  All three running on the same home network. I run the android on wi-fi at the house. On the Cricket network away from home, MCM forum still runs fine. I wonder if Windows XP might be part of the problem?

 

EDIT: I see from the above post that Windows 10 shares the same problem.

I finally got on this afternoon. Looked at a thread, then clicked Forums, and received the dreaded message again.

Just had the issue on my iphone. Sometimes clearing history and cookies help but not this time. No issue on android tablet with chromium.

Same here, not just on one device either, been having this happen with the HP Laptop I bought 13 months ago using the Firefox browser (haven't tried the preinstalled Microsoft browser yet on this issue), my Galaxy S5 (almost 6 years old) using the Firefox Mobile app, as well as the brand new iPod I inherited from Mom (Dad just gave it to her for Christmas).
