Still don't work so i emailed tech support...


The site seems to be still down for me, it has been 3 days since it went live when i change over the DNS server but i still cannot view it in my home (I did for a bit but now its down). It works for some friends in other part of the country but i am still having problems seeing it. Not only that, my emails xxx at raymondlin dot net also stops functioning too, outlook cannot retrieve it, and i can't get to my control panel in the email too.........which is really odd, i have tried both FF and IE so its not a browser problem.

The email control panel is locate at Index of / and that page doesn't even load up for me.


and then he emailed back with this.


what DNS numbers did you direct your domain name to. IT should be:

not that there is no D at the beginning of the DNS numbers.


So i wrote back with


This is what i put in as that is what you gave me.

Who is right? Is there a D at the start of the numbers?

It cannot load the page for me, currently with Zen in the UK.

However, I get a response when I ping Raymond Lin - Creative Photography, the address is:

This takes me to a swsoft PLESK default page.

EDIT: Just tried and now it's working.

this is strange, how can it be working for some and not others

that could imply thats its still in the process of propagating out which can take days.

but i would have thought your hosting company would have simply told you that!

as dork says, a ping resolves itself to:

and upon browsing that IP - takes you to an apache control panel

looks to me like the IP they have allocated your domain name, isnt being pointed to the correct page - which i suspect is caused by an incorrect DNS entry!

although it still puzzles me as to why some people can get your page no problems, unless its my first point

It's nothing to do with the cache, whoops, nice call Quaddy - I didn't realise I missed the one of the IP.

Yeah, both work fine here and both show the same IP and DNS Servers when you do a Whois.

It works for me now in NYC since yesterday night.

The site is pretty cool.
I hope it works out well for you. Did you make it yourself and is it easy to maintain?
