sigh...everything was fine until I decided to 'fix' my domain mapping. I was setting up a new ning site and my hosting company BlueHost told me I had the domain map set up wrong.
This is how FEMSocial.com has been set up since I launched it, but I haven't been getting email so i though 'well, maybe it's because I don't have the mapping set up right.' So I 'fixed it'.
Now I can't get to the site at all. I can't get to it via fullyempowered.ning.com nor through FEMSocial.com
I set everything back to where I had it - I think.
I've cleared my browser (Google Chrome), tried Internet Explorer - and I'm still getting directed to a BlueHost parked page.
I have the A record set to 188.8.131.52 and the CNAME www set to fullyempowered.ning.com
I also deleted the redirect that BlueHost had me put in place.
It's been about 2 hours now of no FEMSocial site.
Anything I'm doing wrong?
It can take a bit of time once you've made a DNS change for it to appear. When I check, your network appears correctly. Are you still having problems?
Thank Phil - I am. It's still not up - but I'll hold my breath and hope it works.
So are you saying that when you go to the site you see it.
works ok, I can also see your site -> femsocial.com
I think you should clear your browser's cache, or try private browsing to test it.
I tried private browsing and clearing my cache and it's still not coming up. I'm still getting the BlueHost parked page. I can access it through my cell phone though. And you got it, so I'm relieved to know it's up.
It's appearing okay for me.
Great - thank you. It's still not up for me. I'm going to shut my computer down.
Ok - it's back for me. Weird...but phew! Thanks for the help.
Hi Christine, do you know what happened? The same thing's happening to me - my mapped domain is still up except for from my own PC (cam access via my phone, and others can see it). I need to upload content urgently!
I don't - but my guess is that it has to do with the ip address you are viewing from - still grabbing the old view.
I completely shut my computer down and then brought it back on line and the site was visible again. So if you haven't tried this, I'd give it a try. Shut it down though, don't just restart.
