  • HELP! My forums crashed!

    I set up my new forums a few days ago.. they were running perfectly and nothing was wrong.. and about 30 mins ago I was browsing the forum and suddenly it crashed.

    Now I can't access the forum and I can't access the server either via FTP. It says it can't find server address or name? What happened! Is the problem from my webhosting service? Have I been hacked? Because at the time it crashed I was advertising my site to some Iranians and they said since when can a Arab use computers... they were on an Iranian computer forum..

    Here's the address of my forum

    The DNS server associated with your URL is down. See if you can get there via direct IP address.

      I don't know the direct IP address..

      Anyway I tried access the site of my webhosting provider, and their site isn't openeing too..

      It's http://www.************.com

      So the problem is from them? What does this mean? Could I lose all info on my server?

        Yes. It's your host. I doubt you'll lose any data.

        EDIT: If you have a direct URL, rather than a virtual, you can do a "PING" on your URL, and the IP address will be returned. (DOS command window.)

          There's a guy on my MSN list he says the IX site opened with him. And now he's saying ayuplanet opened but not the forum...

          But it's not working with me?

            It's definitely a host issue. Call their tech support ASAP.
