I just hope this fixes itself... its so very weird isn't it... if anyone knows of something I can do to make it work, please let me know :)


You can try editing your hosts file, it might work.

Start -> Run
notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

add a line down the bottom that says

212.1.215.83 www.mattyangel.com

Heya it looks like this # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
212.1.215.83 www.mattyangel.com

Does that look right?

That won't fix other telecom users seeing the parking page though. It is likely an ISP problem

Ok :) I got it working for me (YAY) At least I can approve comments and check things now :)

So now I just need to know, how do I check/get it fixed for other telecom customers... Do I wait it out or is there someone I should get hold of tomorrow? Do you think I can do it through email... and if I do contact the person.... what exactly do I tell them.

Sorry for being a bit stupid about this stuff :)

It will probably fix itself for Telecom as a whole over the next few days, but if not, hopefully Peter L will spot this thread and hit something with his big stick.

Best plan is to log a call with the helpdesk. But I will ask the team what the score is tomorrow.

I've checked all the DNS servers, and it seems to be ok now.  I assume either someone has flushed the DNS cache or it already got fixed.
