My Website Is Down But Impressions Keep On Coming
And the clicks and earnings too...

 4:01 pm on Jun 26, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi all, I need your help on something. I can't access my website for the last couple of hours but the support guys of my host are saying that my website is not down. I checked my Google account and it seems they are correct - impressions, clicks and earnings seem to be increasing (but lower than a normal Sunday). The question is - how come I can't access my website, read my emails, nor FTP to my account? Will an overload condition do this? No changes have been made to my PC. Any inputs will be appreciated.

Most likely a routing issue or maybe even your browser has heartburn.

Reboot, if you still can't access the site run traceroute to the domain and see where it breaks along the path. You can also verify it's working via other means like using "The Cloak" anonymous surfing which will let you try your site from a different location on the net.

Thanks for the suggestions, Incredibill! I'll try them.

I checked my website using another PC in the office and it's showing there, so I guess the PC on my desk is really having problems.

I get this problem with just one of my hosts - don't know why.

As Incredibill suggests rebooting the PC normally solves the problem. Sometimes, but not usually, just clearing the cache works.

Maybe your ISP is caching the site in a wrong way.

Thanks a lot, Hinso. Emptying the cache didn't solve it. However, the problem was solved when I just changed my ISP dial-up number.

Serves me right for being a cheapskate and using a 50 cent a month internet service to run my Adsense empire. I'm slapping myself as I type this.

[Maybe your ISP is caching the site in a wrong way.]

Yup. Definitely ISP-related. Thanks.
