Domain name leads to ‘Connection was Reset’ Message

    I am trying to access my blog through my bought domain name which I registered with 123-Reg and I get this message:

    ‘The connection was reset

    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading
    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network
    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.’

    Is this a problem with the domain, which has worked fine for the past two months since I bought it, or my actual blog?

    I think it may be my domain name as the actual blog shows up when I type in it’s alternate address.

    Any ideas what may be the problem?



    It’s how the domain name is setup

    ICANN thinks is hosting the nameservers but it appears actually has them.

    Do note though that this is not how one does domain hosting here at Are you trying to get domain mapping setup or what specifically are you trying to do here?


    To be honest I was just trying to access the site. Whenever I typed in it wasn’t working. But now, as soon as I post a topic in the support forums, it works again!

    Thank you for that domain name report though, it was very interesting.


    Ahh! It’s gone back to not working again for me!

    What could be causing this?



    I would imagine that it is still provagating the name through the world DNS servers and still picks up your old DNS settings every once in awhile. It can take some time to go through. My .com domains go through almost instantly, but my .ca domains take upwards of 24 hours to finally be looked up properly.




    Either that or get the domain mapping option here and let handle the nameservers. Please realize that what you’re doing is faking the domain which is going to cause issues with the search engines and you’re going to be dealing with 2 URLs, not just one. is going to use the URL for everything here while your probably going to do all your links to the domain URL. Just spliting effort if you ask me.


    Ah, yes, that’d probably be a good idea. How do I go about unregistering the domain with 123-Reg and have it on WP?



    I think there is a problem, i always got reset connections, and there are some problems with the comments. It always shows 0, but there are some comments on my posts. please help.



    I had this same problem yesterday continually getting that reset prompt. It happened for about a half
    hour, then seemed to resolve itself. But now I have other more serious problems. (colorized text)
