    Site's Numerical IP Address

    Doing a DSL Lookup:

    Name: a-body.net
    Address: 129.121.184.165

    Inserting 129.121.184.165 into browser's pane, redirects to

    Classic Honda Accord & Prelude Forum
    »www.3geez.com/forum/forum.php

    which is not this site, but both may be using Vibrant Forums for hosting.

    »www.vibrantforums.com/services/

    Some type of DNS SNAFU...I have to use Opera with Turbo engaged (proxy) to access this site.

    Something amiss...

    There may be some port settings or other trickery going on in the backend to allow the site to share the same ip with multiple domain names.

      Nice catch. We're on the same server account as 3geez.com, so the IP is shared. I just consolidated the accounts today, but 3geez is the primary domain, so using the IP will direct you to that site unless you type out the full URL -

        I have to use Opera with Turbo engaged (proxy). Yes that URL will bring up that page, but login, and try to access a section, and poof:

        Code:
        404 Not Found
        
        The server can not find the requested page:
        
            www.a-body.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?6-News-amp-Site-Feedback (port 80) 
        Please forward this error screen to www.a-body.net's WebMaster.

        When you touch on a section like off topic, it has this address: http://www.a-body.net/forums/forumdi...p?25-Off-Topic

        which then brings up Apache error code.

          But using the a-body.net base URL works fine? Not sure why the new IP address would even come into play since it should be hidden behind the domain.

            Negative....

            I am on a satellite ISP called Exede. Their equipment fetches all pages and sends it to users.

            When I insert this into browser: a-body.net

            or this: http://www.a-body.net

            I get this: http://www.a-body.net/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

            I have no idea if the issue is on their end, or your end. Satellite ISPs can have issues, and Exede was setup to do all of the fetching...unless one uses an outside proxy

              Note - Tonight, I'll clear all cookies, DNS cache, etc...and see what happens.

                Try clearing the DNS cache. I was getting a similar error after the switch, but everything worked after I followed the instructions on that error page and closed my browser.

                  I tried that...but no go.

                  Later this week, I'll fire up another computer and hook direct to satellite modem....this is a backup computer with a fresh Vista install.

                  It boils down to three possible reasons:

                  1. Dynamic IP redirect
                  2. Satellite's Proxy is fumbling the ball
                  3. This site's setup is fumbling the ball

                    I had a Host File setup, with this forum's IP associated with this site....Oooops.

                      Today (6 December 2015) multiple members have contacted me via e-mail and Facebook because this site is giving them an "expired domain name" error. I however, have no problem seeing the site. My IP address is registered in Texas. Members from Florida and Nevada have had issues I believe.

                      Look me up on Facebook

                        It may take several days to update DNS servers, across the world.

                          Yes, this may take time to propagate. My ISP in Texas wasn't resolving the URL either.

                            FYI to all, the site is using a new IP address, 129.121.184.164. I am experiencing some issues on a desktop, but the site works fine on my mobile. It may just take time to propagate.
