Demon Changes it’s website, but still keeps tools for nerds!

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Ever since Demon was my first true ISP (AC - After CIX) back in the days of MS-DOS, Trumpet Winsock (Microsoft Windows 3.1) and Mosaic, I’ve always used Demon’s web-based Internet Tools, (DNS info, whois etc) since to this very day, so I was a bit confused and started to panic, when they had changed the website, but they’ve still kept the tools available now at this URL (web link for people that don’t know what a URL is!).

I’ve been changing some mail records on DNS systems, and I got a mail bounce… It’s no wonder why I didn’t receive the email!

NEW WEBSITE! (hosting server)

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

It would appear that something weird is happening, and the nameserver entries are “bouncing” between the old and new nameservers, the effect of this is, is sometimes you get the old, and sometimes you get the new website. This is out of my control because it’s to do with the DNS cache’s that exist in the Internet and also your computer! It should settle down after 48-72 hours. When the nameserver updates have propagated across the internet. I’ve posted this as a sticky, so you can see if you have reached the old or new website. It may help if you flush the DNS cache on your computer. If I’m talking techie jargon and you’ve switched off don’t worry.
