My forum is down - where do I start looking?

  • Hello,

    it looks like the server itself is unreachable, it doesn't respond to pings at all. Maybe check with your hosting company to see what is going on?

  • I simply executed a ping on your domain to see if anything responds, but I'm still seeing only timeouts. There is not much else I can suggest, except getting in touch with GoDaddy to figure it out, they should be able to resolve the cause of it.

  • I have four other websites on the same server and they are down too, so it must be a Godaddy issue, but they are not available to help at the moment, so I'll just keep trying.


    I had this reply from Godaddy:


    This is a part of maintenance on our shared hosting and can happen anytime based on the server condition

    Since this does not happen in a timely manner we don't notify.

    I really don't know why this is happening, especially since my sites are not at all busy.


    The forum is back up and running.
