Certain websites/IP addresses no longer work or blocked?

Yesterday my web hosting and websites worked fine, today they are not. I have reset the route (twice), checked it on my O2 iPhone (with wifi off, and it works), I have gone to the IP and sites via a proxy and also checked them with http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

 

As per usual, the BT customer support on the phone are about as much use as a chocolate fireguard.

 

This is the IP: https://74.204.168.18/

 

This is a website on that server: http://alexmorganimagingblog.com/

 

It's the second time this has happened to me, for no reason what so ever. Any have any insight or advice?

 

Thanks in advance,

Simon

It's not working for me either.  A traceroute (tracert alexmorganimagingblog.com from a Windows command prompt) bounces all over the internet, failing after aggr-sw2.iad.defenderhosting.com.

Hi.

 

The website is working for me at this moment in time. The IP address is used by about 28 sites, so going to the IP address directly isn't typically going to work.

After an hour and half on the phone with BT, they FINALLY admitted the fault was on their end and that they were working on a fix. I got a trial to a VPN and I can access it just fine. So I'll have to use that until BT sort it out.

might be irrelevant & silly questions but what browser are you using and are you XP/Win7 or what?

 

I'm still having big problems on my XP / IE8 desktop since the latest changes to the BT site and the Microsoft update foul-up.

No, it's probably not as we got told all sorts until they admitted there was a fault.
