Middle of the night and Orcon not open :(

I just set up a new website http://barwatch.fishing

When trying to access the website or the WordPress control panel I just get "This page cannot be displayed"

I have tried every computer and every browser in my house all the same "This page cannot be displayed"

Does anyone else have a Orcon account, I wounder if it will work for you?.

I can access it on all proxy's overseas and even a proxy in New Zealand. I rang Godaddy and they said my internet provider must have blocked it.

Why would Orcon do such a thing?.

Hope some kind person is up to make a suggestion or answer :)

Does not mean Orcon has blocked your site and are you an Orcon customer?

DNS for your domain who is it hosted by and when was it registered?

Edit: domain hosted by godaddy

I am on holiday in Singapore but it's not an Orcon issue it's what happens when you register a new domain its not instant and saying Orcon is blocking the site is not correct and maybe you need to say sorry :p

Further to this godaddy should have advised the domain was only registered an hour ago and it can take up to 24 hours before it will work world wide

DNS changes take time to propagate throughout the world to ISP's DNS servers.

It's working for me on my Slingshot connection.

I suggest you edit your original post too.  If it does happen to be an issue with Orcon later, you can update us.

DNS works on a cache - the response is cached for a while, the value based on TTL. If you checked on Orcon BEFORE it was available, the cached response will be empty and this response will be cached for a while on that network.

Relax, try again in the morning. If it stays like that then it's time to start thinking what else could be happening.

And the less likely thing happening here is Orcon intentionally blocking your site.

Thanks for your answer :) yes Works fine. As said before it was godaddy that told me on the phone Orcon had blocked it.
