virgin media website reachable?
« on: April 18, 2017, 11:55:07 AM »

Over the last few days I've not been able to reach virginmedia.com website. I can reach my.virginmedia.com though.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

I wasn't sure which place to put this post so types it here. If it needs to be moved then thats ok :)

Works here. What DNS do you use? It's likely a DNS issue.
Can you reach it via its direct IP?
http://62.254.123.91

In future it's handy to check on http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com to see if a website is reachable

thanks mate.

I figured it out. I think it was ublock that for some reason was blocking me accessing it. I use firefox usually and attempted in chrome to reach the site and it worked. Only difference was I didnt have ublock on chrome. So I disabled ublock on virginmedia site and it loaded up perfectly. Not sure why ublock had a problem with it. first world problems lol
