    Loads as I would expect here, between 1-2 seconds to load a thread.

    Thanks Deebs. It must be my ISP as I experience lot of lags.
    Any insight on the DNS reverse warnings from pingdom?

    Do a name server report for your domain on dnsstuff.com ?

    I use Godaddy DNS services.

    I am looking at it but I do not believe it is a DNS issue. From two different ISPs (one 2mbit one 40mbit) your site and the forums (including threads load fine).

    Trying to find the bookmark I made for a very good DNS checker which does not charge... :)

    I mean, the one your own computer, your own router/modem is using.. Instead of the ISP, use google's public dns, or opendns.com's public dns

    Pingdom suck. As an example I fail with sending emails to root@mydomain.com. Just had 6 people on 6 different ISPs (in the UK) send an email to the email address in my SOA and I received everyone of them.

    The warnings are just reverse lookups when using IPv6. That *could* be GoDaddys issue if they are not IPv6 ready. Ignore the reverse lookups for now, that is mainly used by security conscious persons, as long as the address resolves to an IPv6/IPv4 address then all is well. (GoDaddy may not be designated as the master for the address range in which your reverse lookups happen, my site fails as well on pingdom but passes on others).

    The biggest use in reverse lookups as they work now is for checking if a mail server is really who they say they are. In order for it to work you have to have a static ip that's just yours and whomever provides that IP to you has to set up a PTR record for it. You can request it from your ISP but unless you host your own mail off that IP I wouldn't worry about it.

    Oh thanks for that free one Floris, they had a subscription for dnsstuff where I worked last but I've recently left their employment :p

    It will be nice to have a tool I can use again.

    dnsstuff is great, and worth the money if you have to use it daily, that said .. im just a simple consumer who needs it once a year .. it's not worth the money. My subscription run out. I invested in it once. And used it on all my domains. gdamn 4 months later I changed hosts and had to do it all again, but it expired.
