Hi All,

 

 

 

I'm having trouble getting to hardocp.com

 

Thought they might be down, but "down for everyone or just me" shows the website is up...

 

Google chrome gives me ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED

 

Ping give me "Ping request could not find host hardocp.com. Please check the name and try again."

 

 

 

I'm with Spark, and its not working on my fixed line broadband (VDSL) or mobile (4g).

 

It was working yesterday.

 

 

 

Is this a spark issue?

 

If so can someone there fix it?

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Dairyx

Replying to my own thread, I've tried changing the DNS to googles 8.8.8.8 and still cannot get to hardocp.com

 

So now I'm confused. Is it being blocked by spark?

 

Is it working for anyone else?

Strange not working here on spark also doesnt work on another server thats connected to a network in germany so they could be having DNS issues

It's behind CloudFlare. Lookup here.

Thanks people.

 

When I try to access the IP directly, it gives me a cloudflare error (cannot be accessed directly).

Working for me at work (We're our own AS but our connection is via 2 Degrees/Snap), and failing from my flat (Spark UFB)

 

 

 

 





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

freitasm:

 

Working for me on 2degrees but they aren't behind Cloudflare from what I see.

 

 

You might be right. The DNS record lookup gave results very much like CF.

Found their Facebook page, admitting they're having issues.

 

I think they're trying to mitigate a DDOS attack, and rapidly changing their IP/Server, plus god knows what else.

Had a play around with nslookup, works on OpenDNS but not Google or Spark:
