Newly published site cannot be seen on the Internet

by deanajovanfleet / November 6, 2003 11:57 AM PST

Can anyone help me? I have recently changed servers and chose a Linux platform over a Windows one due to its reliability (so I am told). I just published a new website to the server... http://www.drewcoopermx.com and
only 1/2 of people looking at it are able to bring it up on their computer. What could possibly be the reason for this? We've tried different computers in different locations and different cities... and only half the people see the website... the others get a message saying the page cannot be found...

If it's any help, I can view the website on my I.E. 6/XP Pro from Toronto, Canada.

I can see it too - IE 6 and Win XP.

You didn't ask for comments on the site, but I need to anyway:

I have about 1 inch of screen left where the actual information you seem to want to get across is displayed. And to me there's nothing worth that much scrolling.

My suggestion: Use your graphic as a home page, if you must, but find something much smaller for the contend pages.

There's a clue.

"I have recently changed servers"

The magic of DNS is that it takes a day or so for IP changes to propagate to the world. A secondary problem occurs when some load internet accelerator software that caches the IP address and when a site moves, they complain they can't get to the new site.

You may see this issue vanish in time.

First thing I would do is contact several of the group who can't see the pages and have them delete cookies and temp internet files from their computer. I have found this to be an issue with several sites lately that I maintain. FYI I can see the site fine using IE6/XP Pro

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
