Server Not Found/Problem loading Page

 
0
 

Hello! I'm new here and am hoping someone can help me:

For 5 days now, I've been trying to get on a website that I have been using for years. Suddenly, I am getting Problem Loading Page/Server not found error, in Firefox, and Page cannot be displayed/Cannot find server in IE. It's obviously not the browser. It happens on both laptop computers in the house. I have tried accessing the site through my bookmarks and through other links. I've cleared my temp files, caches, etc. We are on a wireless connection. I'm able to pull up most other websites, though I inconsistently get this same error occasionally from other links I try. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

Most likely the website itself is having trouble.

All kinds of things may have happened to them:

- Their computer may have eaten the website AND the backup.
- Their computer may now be a pile of burned out chips, due to a surge or a lightning stroke.
- They went bankrupt.
- Their building burned down.
- The company was bought out.
- The company failed to pay the ISP bills, and was disconnected.
- They got kicked off the ISP for content violations.
- They forgot to renew their url, and it got nabbed by someone else.
- Their ISP got a better price for the domain name
- Somebody trademarked the domain name, and they had to change it (this happened to me a few years ago).
- The ISP was bought out, and the new owner changed the domain name.
- They changed ISPs to get a better price. That means they have a new url. (use search)
- Their ISP's building burned down.
- Their ISP's computer is now a pile of burned out chips.
- The whole area is blacked out due to a snowstorm (This just happened to some plains states). No power, no website.

There are a few cases where the trouble could be on your end:

- Your ISP blocked the site (usually due to spam or porn).
- Your security settings are blocking the site.
- The site is blocking you for some reason.
- You are using a url other than the standard entry url, and they redesigned the site in a way that eliminated that url (use search).

I neglected to say that the website, epicurious.com, is running fine, is not a pile of burned out rubble (as amusing as that explanation is, at this point) and is able to be accessed by friends and colleages. I've also temporarily turned off my security features, and tried to load it, which also didn't work. As I said, I've tried getting in through different angles, including searching, linking from bookmarks & other sites. As it is a food site, porn is not an issue.

Is there a way to sort out being blocked? Or is there another explanation?

I had a similar problem. I found the solution in Microsoft's website. Go to start and click on run. Type in "cmd" and click OK. Type in "netsh int ip reset filename.txt" and hit enter. Close out and then access the internet as normal. I have had to do this more than once; I think my computer protection features keep the function from sticking.

I do not know if you have fixed your problem yet nor if this is gravedigging but i have had the same problem for some number of weeks i finally figured out the problem, i done this:

1. Click on Start, then select "Control Panel".
2. Double click on "Network and Dial-up Connections".
3. Right Click on the LocalNet Icon, and select properties.
4. Click on the tab labeled "Networking".
5. In the white box labeled "Components checked are used by this connection" double click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)".
6. Make sure the option "Obtain DNS server addresses automaticly" is selected.
7. Click OK
8. Click OK

Then i went to:
Run: cmd
ipconfig /flushdns

Restart your computer and wallah

I have this problem but it only started when I added a router?
Actually I've tried 2 different models, no problems when they are uninstalled.

You can try one of the fastest browser called opera. There might be some problem in ie. Another issue might be there. Just check it out from different places or cyber cafe that, the website is running properly? I thing there might be the problem of website.

I'm having the same problem. My websites are showing up as server-not-found across different browsers and different computers. It is intermittant and the sites are all up and running . They usually work after about 2 minutes of not being found. A fix on my own computer is not a solution since this problem is affecting my websites when my clients try to see them too. When I went to show a client their website today it was on a Mac and she had the same problem, so it's not just a PC thing. I have no idea why this is happening. I even changed hosting companies and I'm still having the same issue.

PS. Just in submitting this post THIS website came up as server-not-found everytime I clicked a button, but when I refreshed it came back on. This website is obviously working, so what's up with that?

For 5 days now, I've been trying to get on a number of websites that I have been using for years. I'm getting the following message Server not found Firefox can't find the server at www.eju.net * Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
It happens on my macbook in the house. I'm a wireless connection. The sites in question all work fine from my work computer. I'm able to pull up most other websites. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

thanks Deirdre

OK, my friend has a wireless router that he is directly connected to Via Ethernet chord and normally when he goes to connect to the internet to any site an error message shows up saying Server not found. Firefox can't find server at(...). I asked my computer networking teacher for help and he said it was probably a DNS issue but I checked it and I don't see an issue with the DNS, but when I was looking around something came up saying that the Ip address is in conflict with another computer on the network. however if I refresh the page a few times the page eventually loads. I checked the only other known computer on the network and they have different Ip address. what can i do to get the message to go away?

Maybe the bad internet users are hacking your website. If they aren't always online, then guess when they are offline. Try waiting for these hackers to be offline.
