Re: site unreachable: how to get it fixed?

Go to solution

@licquorice maybe I eventually will... but as of now the site www.chessgames.com is still unreachable from my BT line. I can only get there relying on someone else's routing, such as using my Vodafone mobile, my private VPN or my corporate VPN.

I also thought there might be a DNS issue, maybe a propagation issue, however the domain resolves everywhere (also on the BT network) to 199.237.62.178 but the address is unreachable from the BT line.

@licquorice interesting... are you saying that for a short time the www.chessgames.com site was available from a plain BT Broadband line, no VPN on top of that... just using the routing from BT?

Cannot access www.chessgames.com

Go to solution

For some reason in the last few days I have not been able to access this popular website.

Also some people on Reddit mentioned it recently

The site https://ismywebsitedown.com/ for me thinks it is up:

 

According to us chessgames.com is Online!
 
Is there some issue routing to this particular website?
 
What would the resolution be?

Hi there

People in the US have access to Chessgames.com - I have asked on the TCEC chess live - where over 500 people online right now at tcec-chess.com. Some say it is a bit slow for them but it does load. 

When I run a tracert chessgames.com i get:

Tracing route to chessgames.com [199.237.62.178]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

... (from hop 3) :

Something is going badly wrong at hop 9 here

This is a major chess website - and chess has record popularity now worldwide.
