    weird domain


    I registered a domain, first it didn't work with www. now it doesn't work at all. but only on my computer. Anyone i gave it to could go there. Also i tried from a different computer it also worked.

    Why doesn't it work from my area/computer?

    Check the name server settings with your registrar. It could be that your local Name Servers are set correctly, but global aren't.

    Here's what I mean...

    I'm working with a site that is hosted by my university, and until recently the site could only be accessed if you were on campus or on dialup to the university because the settings with the registrar were still pointing to their own nameservers, but the local nameservers (run by the university) were pointing to the right place.

    If you want an easier way to do ip lookups try IP Lookup (http://www.toolsforselling.com/v1/1/iplookup.htm)
