    I don't think this would work but it's the only thing that came up in my tired mind

    Start > Run, ipconfig /flushdns

    and see if the sites work

    Hello sir, to assist you first I will need you to restart your computer. Click the circular button on the bottom left of your screen, then click 'Shut Down', count to 500 and then turn your computer back on.

    What operating system are you running? The first thing that comes to mind is clearing your DNS cache, maybe trying OpenDNS just to see if that helps.. I've had similar problems before and it just took a DNS flush & reboot to fix.

    Edit: Bryan beat me to it.

    Thanks for a fast response. I tried it, but I did not have any luck.


    I figured it could have been a DNS cache problem so I refreshed the cache on my computer, but it was still not working. It worked on other machines, so I figured it's not a DNS Propagation delay issue; however, I could be wrong as I am not an expert in networking. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks for the suggestion and the detailed shut down instructions? :) Never heard it described that way before, so it was quite amusing.

    I have already tried the basics multiple times; emptying cache, rebooting, etc.

    In regards to the DNS cache, that's exactly what I was thinking; however, read above post to see why it is not.

    I was just making fun of tech support :p

    What happens when you ping the subdomains that aren't working? Try on the computer you're having problems with and one that's working.

    What ISP are you using? Some overload those servers with shared hosting so badly nothing works well.

    Haha, sadly that's pretty close to the actual. If they said that instead of trying to sound like what they knew what they were doing and not wasting my time, I think it would have been better. haha

    I pinged the subdomains that were working successfully as well as the main domain. The subdomains not working seems to not be found at all, so the pinging does not occur.

    On a computer that loads it, I am able to ping it.

    I am using yahoo DSL. I talked on the phone with them because my host told me multiple times (even though I disagreed) and told me there was no problem on their part which made sense.

    If your scripts are using too much cpu it might be time to get a vps or a dedicated server.
