  • Why can't I access my domain?

    I bought a domain yesterday and today I got the nameservers pointing to the new hosting location. The site was loading the index.html page like butter and I spent the afternoon building the site. It was working all day at work and now that I'm home, I can't access it. On my work computer it was fine and on my home computer it's not. At home here I have a DSL modem feeding the internet into a D-Link wireless router and then into the desktop via a wired connection. The wireless is only used for the car. I can access every page on the internet except for my own domain that I made yesterday, but one of my friends on the other side of the country can access it no problem. I asked her what the sentence on the main page said and she copied/pasted it. Any ideas? I didn't configure any IP blocking at all, never even got into it.

    can you do an nslookup and resolve the name at home? It might be as simple as your ISP's DNS hasn't updated yet.

      yep, if it's a new domain, it takes time for the IP address yo update on all the ISP nameservers, it can take 24 to 36 hours. You'll also find you'll have the same problem when switching a domain to anotherhost. Just ask James from Digital-car.co.uk. Some of us couldn't access it for two dyas, whereas other gone in with a couple of hours.
