    Server is gone

    I recently often stumble over "could not find the server" messages when I go to the Google, Bing and also Flashkit site. What is going on here? Is that now normal?

    ping them and see if you're experiencing high packet loss or do a trace route and see if you're being put through outrageous routes. Your ISP should be happy to replace modems, splitters etc. if they can't fix it remotely.

    Honestly, it sounds like DNS issues. I'd suggest switching to OpenDNS or Google's DNS services if you could at the router and/or machine level.

    It's not normal. There's a connectivity problem somewhere. It may be between you and the DNS server (probably hosted at your ISP), or between you and your ISP, or between your ISP and the world.

    DNS isn't one of the harder things on the internet. You shouldn't need to use a third party when your ISP is obligated to provide this service for you (they're closer to you, they SHOULD be fastest).

    Anyways It is not an internet problem, since other sites at that time were fine. It usually happened in the night to early morning. Most frequently, about 3 times, I observed it with Google, usually 30 sec to a minute.

    When I was with Road Runner, I had to switch to a 3rd party DNS because they would never access certain websites - mostly sites based in Germany (I have contracts there) and weirdly enough, a lot of Internet.com sites (contracts there too).

    Now I'm with Charter, not a prob. But you're right. Sticking with your ISP's DNS is recommended in all but some cases that you experience some of the aforesaid issues.

    Nothing like testing and making sure that's not the problem.
