    Internet guru's.

    How do I find out iof a site is cancelled or something?

    I spent a looonnnnggg time on a forum called ricecop, but now it's down, has been for the last few days. All I get is:

    Server not found
    Firefox can't find the server at www.ricecopforums.com.

    * Check the address for typing errors such as
    ww.example.com instead of
    www.example.com

    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    connection.

    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    Everybody else I talk to on the forum cant get on either. Is there a way one of you could figure out if the domain has been cancelled or something?

    Thank you.

    It's "gurus" without an apostophe!

    Unless you were talking about something owned by an internet guru.

    They probably had a bunch of php code corruption on their servers or they may have been migrating to another server!

    They had problems updating Apache and it would not reload. It took several days to get another hard drive and install the NOS on it.

    Although the problem's resolved, there are a few things you can do in the future to troubleshoot connectivity issues to a specific site.

    1. Check with pings and/or traceroutes to the machine. If DNS is messed up then use the IP address. Traceroutes should tell you if there's a routing problem.
      Code:
      % traceroute www.ricecopforums.com
      traceroute to ricecopforums.com (69.93.86.131), 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
      [HOPS OMITTED]

    2. Check with the whois database to see if the domain has been withdrawn/locked/expired/whatever. If they're truly gone then the registrar will probably have removed their entry or flagged it as locked.
      Code:
      % whois ricecopforums.com

      while believed by the company to be reliable, is provided "as is"

      you agree to these terms of usage and limitations of warranty.  In particular,
      you agree not to use this data to allow, enable, or otherwise make possible,

      processes designed to collect or compile this data for any purpose,

      Please note: the registrant of the domain name is specified
      in the "registrant" field.  In most cases, GoDaddy.com, Inc.
      is not the registrant of domain names listed in this database.

    3. Check DNS resolution. Sometimes someone (them, their provider, the registrar) may have misconfigured or messed up the DNS entry for the domain or the site itself. Look for a valid A (and maybe even PTR) record.

    You do realize that most folks' eyes glazed over and they started checking the news sites at about this point in your post, don't you? Related to another thread...that is something I learned when babysitting executives and their minions in the corporate ivory tower...if you can't say it in one simple sentence, with no techie jargon, preferably with pretty pictures and graphs, their minds go to the mush state.

    And now we see why Khuon didn't work out so well as a manager. Too much attention to detail

    1. Check with pings and/or traceroutes to the machine. If DNS is messed up then use the IP address. Traceroutes should tell you if there's a routing problem.
      Code:
      % traceroute www.ricecopforums.com
      traceroute to ricecopforums.com (69.93.86.131), 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
      [HOPS OMITTED]

    2. Check with the whois database to see if the domain has been withdrawn/locked/expired/whatever. If they're truly gone then the registrar will probably have removed their entry or flagged it as locked.
      Code:
      % whois ricecopforums.com
      The data contained in GoDaddy.com, Inc.'s WhoIs database,
      while believed by the company to be reliable, is provided "as is"

      processes designed to collect or compile this data for any purpose,

      Please note: the registrant of the domain name is specified
      in the "registrant" field.  In most cases, GoDaddy.com, Inc.
      is not the registrant of domain names listed in this database.

         Domain servers in listed order:
            NS1.RCPHOSTING.COM
            NS2.RCPHOSTING.COM
    3. Check DNS resolution. Sometimes someone (them, their provider, the registrar) may have misconfigured or messed up the DNS entry for the domain or the site itself. Look for a valid A (and maybe even PTR) record.

    4. And finally, just to rule out a broken browser, you might even want to check using raw HTTP.

    All of the above should tell you if the machine and network connectivity is good. If there are still problems then it's all content-related.
