DNS is the address to a website only in numbers instead of letters. Like 206.32.456.252 or something like that. All websites have them, it's just hidden. One of those computer geek things...

sue, only half a geek cause I only know they exist, not how they work, etc.

It's not something I give you, it's something your ISP picks up automatically after a few hours/days.

I think.

I would try these steps:

1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
2. Click the General tab.
3. Under Temporary Internet files, click Delete Files.
4. Click to select the Delete all offline content check box, and then click OK.
5. Click Delete Cookies. When you are prompted to confirm this selection, click OK.
6. Click Settings.
7. Click View Objects.
8. Click View, and then click Details.
9. If Damaged appears in the Status column for any program file, remove that program file.
10. Close the Downloaded Program Files dialog box.
11. In the Settings dialog box, click OK .
12. Under History, click Clear History, and then click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the selection.
13. In the Internet Options dialog box, click OK.
14. Try to browse the Internet.

I can't get in either. I followed the above instructions and it won't let me on the site still? Both FireFox and Internet Explorer say they can't find it.

I can get to the site with no problem.

A DNS issue is not one you can fix on your end. Generally DNS issues come when someone changes their hosting. Changing hosting changes where the website is 'found'.

This would be a server side issue. If hosting has been changed, it can take from a couple hours to days for it to resolve. I'm not certain if this is a case of changed hosting or not, but there isn't anything we can do to 'fix' this... it's all in the hands of the internet gods.

No changed hosting. My server did go down temporarily once this week.

My domain is on Registerfly, which has been having serious issues lately.

I'd never heard of DN's. We learn a myriad of things here.

I guess my ISP hasn't picked it up yet. Sigh.

I just checked it myself and there does appear to be a DNS (Domain Name Server) problem. This is often a problem with the host server.
