So I registered a domain name (as I have done so many times in the past) and waited for it to come online. However, it appears on my end that it is still down. The domain in question is "jonandjocelyn.com".
I contacted my hosting provider and asked them why the site wasn't working and they said it was working. So I used BrowserShots.com to take a preview of the website, and they all came up as the site was suppose to. Still, on my computer, I get the standard "Firefox can't find the server at www.jonandjocelyn.com." in FireFox and "Ooopss! Google can't find the website you're looking for." in Chrome. My FTP says it can't resolve the domain name and even using my cmd prompt to ping it gives a cannot resolve error.
I tried my brothers laptop (on the same network). Same thing... nothing.
Something new I just tried was to use a proxy (http://www.proxy.org) and the website came up.
What is wrong with my computer/network? I restarted my computer but that seemed like a long shot when my brothers laptop doesn't seem to work either.
I can visit any other website (such as this one) just fine. Even ones that are on the same hosting plan.
