Welcome back, Trumpet Master!
What was the problem?
Something weird happened with the nameservers.
There you go - Pet Peeve #1002 - Nameservers got wierd....
I'll pretend that I know what a "nameserver" is.
It "serves" "names".
Not only did it "serve" the names - it put a little English on them from the sounds of it.....
So a "nameserver" is a pool of names?
- Morris [stop me before I pun again...]
I don't know either. I just own the place.
Close, you give it a name, "www.trumpetmaster.com," and it serves you the address to go to reach it.
the REAL internet adressing system is hidden from most users. It is just a series of numbers (called an IP address). Somebody got the brilliant idea many years ago to sell the service of turning IP (Internet Protocol) addresses into names. They set up servers and one can register with them. If you have anything to offer on the internet, names make you easier to find - if you are human.
When these servers stop working, there are no names available and if you don't know the IP address, you can't get the website.
I am not sure if this was trumpetmasters problem though. I typed in the IP number (126.96.36.199) and didn't get the site either.
A common answer among ISP web admins, when they don't understand what problem has happened and they cleared it up by rebooting every device in sight is "Oh, there was wierdness with DNS" or something to that effect....it's pretty much a catch all that is very hard to disprove, thereby protecting many jobs daily.... =
