XF 1.1 User can't access site?

I know this may not be XF software related but I contacted my server host and this user's IP is not being blocked. This is the first time I've ran into this and it was NOT because my hosts have the IP blocked.

He's using latest google chrome and gets
"Go! Google Chrome could not connect to the page reddead.us"

I'm asking him to clear his cache but he's never visited the site before, so this is a little weird?
I'll advise him to try another browser too, but I'd still like to know why chrome isn't working for him :\

I think I've seen this issue here before (not XF related) but I can't find the thread! lol

Does it work in any other browser for him? Can you get him to perform a trace route to your site to make sure they are able to resolve the dns entry?

Oh that's going to be fun >.> lol

I'm pretty sure it's some weird error on his end, but I'll see if he'll do a trace route.

I'm in the UK. Will do a trace now
Much appreciated! The most recent add-on installed was the redirect for mobile users. I'm not sure what else it could be!
I've only been working on my styles on the live site and then doing actual coding for add-ons on my test forum/offline.
:\ Then again who knows how long this has been happening!

This is over my head right now. I told him two different people can't access (from different countries) and he said it's probably their ISP. :mad:

I am very sure it is not your ISP.

If I trace from the web, it goes all the way through


108.171.213.130 is from United States(US) in region North America

I personally think your host is blocking ip ranges / countries at server level.

Same thing happened with a site of mine once. It was the web host. It would hit random users for a few days at a time.

Yes that's what I thought to and so I asked for it to be cleared up. He said no one is being blocked. lol
I've had this happen a few times before, but I just want to be able to prove on my end that it is them and not XF software or my error.

Thanks for during the tracert :)
