ARGH! Can't get to a website

For some odd reason I can't get to www.smallball.com However, I can get to pages on the website just not the opening page.

1.) I can get to the IP address of 207.188.30.93 but not the URL

2.) I recently installed Zone Alarm, since the issue has started I have unistalled it but I still can't get to the page.

3.) I flushed and reregistered my DNS with IPCONFIG

4.) Released and renewed DHCP.

5.) I am behind a linksys router with a cable modem.

Any more suggestions?


XP SP-2 no firewall

That period was not part of the URL, I still can't get there.

You have Flash installed?

You might need something like Registry Mechanic to get all of Zone Alarm. Or you could go manually into your registry and delete everything with ZoneAlarm in it.

if you are having issues with connecting to a website NAME, but it works fine when using the actual numeric ip address, then the issue lies with your isp's dns servers. Try using a public third party DNS server as a backup to the primary one of your ISP, this should allow you to connect to the site. I have seen issues like this many times in the past, mostly with roadunner and bellsouth customers. Don't know why they dont upgrade their servers, obviously they are experiencing frequent overloads.

I am glad I could help

This is one problem I don't have to worry about anymore, since I have a win2k3 server at home which is running a dns server for my home network. This is great, everything resolves much faster now obviously
