    I know the URL is www.torrentbytes.net, my DNS server is resolving that to 85.17.40.178 which times out. Here is the nslookup output

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: www.torrentbytes.net
    Address: 85.17.40.178

    Can you confirm if your DNS server is giving out the same IP address for www.torrentbytes.net

    Thanks

    To be honest I don't know a clue about DNS and I do not know where I can find out if it do give out the same IP adress for www.torrentbytes.net

    And I was using URL: www.torrentbytes.net (still doesn't work).

    if you are using microshite, fire up a command window (start; run; cmd)

    then type "nslookup www.torrentbytes.net"

    this will tell you what IP address your DNS server is resolving www.torrentbytes.net to.

    Cheers

    I can confirm that my friends who can connect to the site get the same IP as we get now.

    Oh, I found one solution. You all know the lines
    85.17.40.246 www.torrentbytes.net
    85.17.40.247 tracker.torrentbytes.net
    we added into the file hosts?
    If you remove those now, the page will work again.

    The site is working for me, you could have some form of DNS problem, try opendns and see if that works.

    They change servers, a couple of weeks ago. Below is an extract from the message they sent out.

    "This will mean that all of you who have previously edited your hosts files, the site will eventually stop working for you once the DNS has updated for the new servers (your hosts files will be pointing to the wrong IP).

    All you will need to do is once the site stops working, remove any reference to Torrentbytes from your hosts file and sit tight until the DNS has updated fully.

    To check your hosts file you will find it located here: C:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

    Just open it with notepad and if you find any reference to TB remove it and then save "

    Hope this fixes your problem
