No, that would be the change in IP addresses for our servers. Most people didn't notice the change, because their Internet providers had real-time DNS server updating. If your provider doesn's have access to a fast DNS server, it will probably take them a day or three to notice the change in our IP addresses.
The cname should have a long ttl, but the lookup for motorcycle.com (the result of the cname) should have a much shorter TTL, rather than the day+ ttl. It has NOT propigated the change to ICSI (and to my cable-modem at home) as a result of the very long TTL setting for motorcycle.com
Yes, every time you make and changes in DNS at all, first lower the TTL on your zone for about a week prior to the move. That way it tells all of the downstream dns servers to look for updates more frequently, and your members will experience less disruption.
I couldn't get on MO for 5 days, this caused me mental duress, repeated checks of my LAN settings, loss of earnings and whatever else I can thik of..... plus 5 days worth of the pro-rated subscription cost.
All in all you owe me $ 486,981.42 I'll accept certified checks in the full amount to my residence, which you have on file..........Thank you
I've had hell trying to get to your site. I've purged cookies and all that sort of stuff and still this AM I couldn't access the website at all. This is with IE 6. I have Comcast Broadband. No other website causes trouble like this. Stop blaming your customers. 12 lashes with whole wheat spaghetti.
I also had constant trouble from the server at work, once again with IE 6.
So I downloaded and installed Mozilla and like magic MO runs like greased lightening. However most people use IE and you are losing new customers. People can't check MO out and subscribe if they can't access it.
There has always been a bit of reluctance for MO to come up, at least compared to many other sites. Since your migration it's been worse.
