Good that it is fixed. I experienced that downtime yesterday. Still the forums crash occasionally, at least for me. I sometimes get the “Cannot find page” window when I use the forums. And I can’t access ld4all.com for 20-30 mins…
Being your name servers use the same domain name as main site, when the power went away, even the ip address lookup failed. So, the error was not a site is not responding, it was ld4all does not exist.
It’s not that big a deal, but i would suggest moving the nameservers elsewhere.
Why would you suggest this? Since ld4all only has one server, if its down the site won’t work. Whether that’s a “server is unreachable” error or a DNS failure seems to make no difference to me. I disagree with your suggestion. Sounds like hassle and possible expense for no gain. Using free services to host DNS also makes it highly unlikely to be able to keep the “ns.ld4all.com” nameserver names. This seems more valuable than getting a different error message to me.
I have not been able to log in for quite a while now, so I know how it feels. Occasionally I was able to log in, but not stay logged, sometimes LD4all would not even show up on the page, just white. Scary
