I notice from your image posted that the top right says 'network solutions".

NS appear to be doing the hosting for trustedreviews..  and in view that they renewed their domain today..  its highly likely that its a DNS related issue.

DNS propogation can take a while (several hours) and most ISPs have DNS caching servers. 

If a domain (website) changes servers it can take a while for all the various ISPs around the world to catch up with the new correct server.
I know when Ive changed servers in the past it can sometimes take up to 12 hours for everyone's DNS to catch up.

It might be worth thinking about using an alternative DNS service. I'm not personally keen on OpenDNS, because they do some rather naughty things, like redirecting searches to their own search site.


I disagree there Eric as you can disable the ads coming up so I get "Page Cannot be Displayed" not a million Yahoo ads provided by OpenDNS.

Although I do agree with Eric in respect that perhaps you may see improvements if you switched DNS provider.

After getting rid of Tiscali DNS I have noticed better ping and responsiveness online.
