www.interwestit.com site has been working fine. Now it times out on loading.

  1. Site does not load. I made a quick post this morning, noticed it hand not echoed to twitter and started looking around ... time out browser windows.

    Trying to understand why http://www.interwestIT.com -- which is directed to interwestit.wordpress.com suddenly stopped working. Haven't got a clue as to what changed. Back end maintenance on your side?

    DNS is at Enom.com. But this hasn't been a problem.

    The blog I need help with is interwestit.com.

  2. Good news ... I can reach the Blog Cpanel ...

    http://interwestit.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

  3. On the phone with Enom.com (holding) to find out if their DNS is at fault.

  4. Hi!

    Did you setup any redirection on WordPress.com ? It looks like interwestit.wordpress.com is redirecting to interwestit.com, creating an infinite redirection loop.

  5. It's not DNS. This is WordPress...

  6. Did you buy the site redirect upgrade?

  7. Yes, the site redir ($13) was paid, it's interesting though ... I saw that it was active and yet the system kept offering that service to me as if it hadn't been purchased.

    But that's not the stunner -- it's that this has been stable for months.

  8. Domain: interwestit.com

  9. "DNS needs to be updated" ... referring to the fact I'm still using Enom nameservers and page frame redirect.

    Part of this effort has been to see if this configuration might have issues.

  10. Enom, says that the "A" records should be changed. But again, this has been working fine until this morning.

  11. Primary Domain Subscription Email / DNS
    interwestit.com Manage Domain Subscriptions

    Manage Email
    interwestit.wordpress.com Never expires N/A

  12. I can give in and migrate name servers, alas.

  13. Last post for a few hours: off to meetings...

    Maybe the advice is ... if you want WordPress.com sites to work, drink the coolaid, migrate the name servers.

    Back in this thread later in the day...

    Thanks for those thoughts.

  14. This is what I see happening:

    1. interwestit.com tries to load interwestit.wordpress.com inside an iframe(to maintain the domain in the address bar)
    2. interwestit.wordpress.com loads and sends a HTTP 301 code redirecting back to interwestit.com
    3. repeat

      This is how a query to your domains looks for me:

      ;; QUESTION SECTION:
      ;interwestit.com.		IN	A
      
      ;; ANSWER SECTION:
      interwestit.com.	1540	IN	A	216.239.34.21
      interwestit.com.	1540	IN	A	216.239.36.21
      interwestit.com.	1540	IN	A	216.239.38.21
      interwestit.com.	1540	IN	A	216.239.32.21
    1. Yes, I'm seeing that too. It's that A record 216.239.32.21 -- which is a Google IP ... I use Google Hosted Services for mail, apps, user start pages, bla bla.

      Reason why I didn't want to hike the Name Servers over here.

      If I knew what address (wordpress) to put in the A record, I think this would disappear.

      the other services are all configured with Cnames... shouldn't be affected by changing the A record -- If I remember my DNS engineering.

      Question is, what changed at WordPress to suddenly become sensitive to the A rec. Like, this morning.

      Weird.

      Like I said earlier perhaps I should just bite the bullet.

    2. Really weird. I've added the modlook tag, let's see if can get some attention from the staff.

    3. I've installed the WordPress NameServers at Enom.

      I'll be backing into making the email work (we don't get much through this domain anyway.)

      After that I can rework the records for the other services.

      I'd be interested in getting to the bottom of this, but I fell pretty confident those A records caused the recursive loop.

      God bless you for poking your nose in here with me!

    4. installed the mail records ... given in the support page

      MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
      MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
      MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
      MX 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
      MX 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
      TXT v=spf1 include:aspmx.googlemail.com ~all

      I don't think I need to dig out the verification text ... so I skipped that.

    5. Have begun to see the page loading now. Double checking, and I'll test email after propagation is further along ... couple of days.

    6. Nope, was wrong. I can see the pages inside the wordpress admin tool at least ... drop in new posts, etc.

    7. Yup. It's working now. Email remains operational so far.

      Thanks,

      ...dgg

    8. Happy to know everything is working again!

      cheers!
