Re: page load error

Things to try:

1. From the command prompt, ping and ping Just a diagnostic, of course. Tell what you find.
2. Then, also from the command prompt, tracert in stead of ping.
3. Then clear your Temporary Internet Files (if you use IE) or your cache (if you use Firefox)
4. Then turn off your router and modem and turn them on again
5. Then try the other browser (IE in stead of Firefox or the other way around)
6. Then flush your DNS, as told in
7. Then check your hostfile if it mentions your site
8. Then try it after booting in Safe Mode with Network support.
9. Then take your PC (laptop?) to somewhere else (with another ISP!) and try there.
10. Type the IP-address in the address bar of your browser. What happens? With me interesting things: avast gives a warning for malware, then I get a 404-page from the server.
11. Disable your antivirus and try again.
12. Disable your firewall and try again (dangerous, if you're not behind a router!)

Please tell what you find.

If ping gives a time-out ...

In reply to: no luck!

on an IP-address, and it doesn't do it somewhere else (it works with me, for example), it's most likely a problem with your ISP.

Find a friend with a laptop and let him try it both with you and at home. Then put your PC in your car and try it with him. This would definitely locate the problem if it's with your ISP (or blocked in your router, but that's easy to reset - resetting is something else as turning of and on).

me too!

In reply to: If ping gives a time-out ...

Omg, I get this exact same error. I can only access the site, under a proxy or through the IP. The domain doesnt work for me. I have tried all these steps too! I am getting really mad cause I waited for the nameservers to switch over, and its after 24 hours so it should work.

It works for everybody else except me.
