I will look into this again with the hosting service.

I just hope it isn't an issue again with too many users for the server. That means me paying more money to allow a greater number of users. Gulp

This is the first time I've been able to access the forum in a month. I didn't think of a DNS issue! The IP address I got from pinging the cutterandtailor.com domain lead to a 404 page (which of couse, being wrong, it would), so my ISP's DNS server is obviously out of date, and I didn't think to check opendns.org!

Well, I feel a bit silly now.

I'm still getting at least one period of inaccessibility per day despite using the OpenDNS server...

Sator, you might want to ask them if their DNS is/are under DDoS attack. Has happened to some academic sites - their hosting services' DNS were under DDoS attack. Same symptom: The website appears unreachable.

Since I do not have any problems with access I wonder whether or not it's your ISP or the browser settings that causes the trouble.

Same for me. Isn't this a USA users specific issue ?

Could people please report downtimes (in Northern American EST and date).

I have to report these to the service provider.

I suspect that peak times of usage occur in North America ie it is forum congestion that is causing this. Also we are on a shared server.

The next time someone can't access the forum please post the time and the EXACT error message. They are saying there is "nothing wrong" and want the EXACT error message plus time.

^ Fixed. It was a different issue.

I am experimenting with blocking access to guests so I can reduce the amount of traffic to the site. More traffic = increased running costs. Most of these guests are not human anyway, they are just bots.

Tech support need the EXACT error message that comes up and not just the time of the event. Until I can tell them the EXACT error message, nothing can be done.

Thank you
