Buddhanet.net - Down or Gone?

I tried going to Buddhanet.net last week and got a server not found message.

I tried again this morning and got the same thing.

Anyone know if they are having technical issues or if the site is gone?

Thanks.

Probably technical issues. The site is working fine for me today, but a few days ago it was unavailable.

I just tried their Worldwide Buddhist Directory and its still there:

http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/index.php

from there I clicked on the word "Buddhanet" and got the website.

http://www.buddhanet.net/

I just went to their Facebook page. Other people are having the same trouble I am having and it doesn't look like Buddhanet is reading their Facebook page from the dates of the posts.

The "contact" button on their Facebook page just redirects to their site, so there is no way to communicate with them for people in blocked areas.

I ran a WHOIS on their domain and sent an email to their administrative contact. The email address looks like it belongs to a Bhikkhu so I have no idea how soon he will see the email.

I can get there using their IP address : http://72.18.132.129/

So, it looks like a DNS issue.

I sent an email to their webmaster: support -AT- buddhanet -DOT- net

Update: http://www.buddhanet.net now works for me from my work box.


Update 2: The admin contacted emailed me last night, they have their own server, have set up a new one, and are still adjusting it.
I can reach buddhanet.net from work, but not home.

I don't have access either (Slovenia, Europe), not even by proxy.

P.S.

That works. Perhaps they have changed ISP's recently; for a while after such a change, the site might be accessed by their DNS, but not by their usual URL address.
(Similar happened when this forum changed ISP's.)

I also was thinking recently whether Buddhanet was down or not as it didnr work sometime back I tried to access it.

Just now I opened it on Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer and it works fine on all of them.

The IP address works for me, too, but http://www.buddhanet.net still doesn't.
