  • unable to access website

    After switching DNS service from my old server I am unable to obtain one website either via its FQDN or its IP address. It old server used the same forwarders I just get the following message after a minute or two:

    The page cannot be displayed

    The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.
    To attempt fixing network connectivity problems, click Tools, and then click "Diagnose Connection Problems..."

    Other options to try:
    • Click the Refresh button, or try again later.
    • If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.
    • To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
    • See if your Internet connection settings are being detected. You can set Microsoft Windows to examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings (if your network administrator has enabled this setting).
    1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
    2. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
    3. Select Automatically detect settings, and then click OK.
    • Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
    • If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.

    Re: unable to access website

    Have you cleared the DNS cache on your server and client??? ipconfig /flushdns

    What happens when you try and ping the website, does it resolve an IP address???

    What happens if you use NSLOOKUP to check the DNS records of the site. Does it retrieve any addresses??

    What is the affected website???

    Do you have any stale hosts/lmhosts file entries??
