Issues connecting to my godaddy hosted website trace report shows it reaching a firewall

Go to solution

I am having an issue whereby I can't see my website from BT Broadband but my Three network phone can see it. I have asked friends who are with Virgin Media and they can also not see it. I have been back and forth between godaddy support and BT support and no one can seem to resolve this issue. So far I know that it traces to ip 195.219.194.2 (ripe.net) and then a firewall blocks it to godaddy. I am really not sure what I can do the trace report shows time outs on 2 and 3 however this is apparently normal with BT Broadband.

As BT have said, hops 2 and 3 not responding is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

 

Where you see time outs after hop 12 is not necessarily a firewall. This is more likely caused by the device at hop 13 not having a 'route' back to the IP address you're sourcing the traceroute from.

 

Are you able to include the host name or IP address that you're trying to connect to so others using BT IP addresses can see if they see the same behaviour?

it should be 160.153.162.130 and has a test html so you should see that if everything works but unfortunately its timing out

I tried from here with traceroute using ICMP, UDP and TCP and all fail at the same point as you saw.

As I'd mentioned previously I suspect this is a routing issue i.e., no return path, rather than a firewall.

 

The problem is beyond the point of BT's administrative control so there's little that can be done via this forum. I'd suggest contacting GoDaddy and show them that users on BT and VM are not able to connect and have them investigate.

Hi groppo91 - coincidentally I have a domain on that (shared) hosting IP from GoDaddy, and am experiencing the same issues that you are (since some point on Sunday 1st October).

 

Have bounced between GoDaddy and BT so far - but helpful to know that the issue is more widespread.

 

https://pulse.turbobytes.com might be helpful - provides traceroutes from a number of global endpoints - and the results indicate that our hosting IP is unavailable from 24/66 of these.

@tvol. Useful site.... thanks for posting that. With those results I don't see how GoDaddy can try bouncing you back to the ISP. I see failures from Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Ireland.... and so the list goes on. Definitely not a BT problem Smiley Wink

Worth noting that GoDaddy claim that tools such as pulse are 'not reliable' as anti-DDOS measures may kick in - not sure I'm completely convinced by that argument...

Domains on IP addresses either side of ours appear to be accessible ok... godaddy are claiming that no traffic is reaching them, so are pointing at the transit ISP (Tata appear to own 195.219.194.2). Some mobile/BB networks peer with godaddy in London so don't rely on Tata; these are able to access ok. Oddly I can reach the cpanel for my site, which runs on the same server and uses the same route, but a different IP.

Will let you know if I make any further progress...

It does seem rather strange. 160.153.162.129 and 160.153.162.131 get the result in the image.  The cpanel link works fine.   While 160.153.162.130   returns this:

The server at 160.153.162.130 is taking too long to respond.

So, it would seem to suggest it's a godaddy problem.
