  • problem with the site domain

    Hey guys,
    I got a problem with your site domain.
    When ever I go to http://www.vbulletin.com/ I get this error:

    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.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please try the following:

    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).
    If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings.
    If you would like Windows to try and discover them,
    click Detect Network Settings
    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.
    Click the Back button to try another link.



    Cannot find server or DNS Error
    Internet Explorer
    And when ever I go to your IP (http://161.58.84.213) I get the site / forums.

    I already asked every one I know how to solve it, and they didn't know.
    So I'm giving it a try here. =/

    Thanks in advance,
    Shark.

    ps
    Wasn't sure if it's the right place to post it.

    EDIT:
    I use internet explorer and netscape on win2k.

    Umm it could be a DNS problem with ur ISP, but thats not to likely.

    Start up your internet and then go to Tool>Internet Options. THen click on the Security Tab. Then set your security level to either LOW or Medium-LOW.

    Maybe try clearing your cookies while your there..

          Or you could not worry about DNS and fix the problem yourself.

          In your Windows Directory there is a file called hosts.sam.

          If you add the following two lines to the bottom of that file you can access vBulletin.com without DNS and without having to remember the IP address.

          Code:
          161.58.84.213   www.vbulletin.com
          161.58.84.213   vbulletin.com
          Or you could do something like:
          [code]
          161.58.84.213 vbforums
          [code]

          Put as many sites as you want in there. Lookup and loading will be a little faster because you can bypass DNS and access the sites directly.

          I am sure there is an equivalent in both the Linux and Macintosh OSes as well.

            Ed Sullivan, the link didn't work.

            wluke, Thanks alot. You simply solved my problem.

            In this dir:
            C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc
            I had a file named:
            "hosts"

            And the ip of this site was the wrong ip. a simple delete of this line did the work perfectly.

            thanks again, you are the best. =]
