    Access website from IP but not Domain?

    At home I can access my website via IP and Domain name, but at work, I can only access it via IP, not the domain name.

    Why would this happen? I can access every other website at work as well.

    Whats your domain name?

    This problem appears to be strange. Can you please try this after stopping all the firewalls at your office.

    My guess is DNS has yet to propagate.
    That or something else could be wrong. Is your machine at home pointed at the same DNS servers that your site is?

    I updated the namesservers about 15 hours ago, so maybe that's why.

    How do I know if my work is blocking the website, because I can pretty much go to every other website on the internet.

    If it's 15 hours, it's most likely that DNS needs more time to propagate.

    yeah upto 24 to 48 hours....it depends......but I don't think that this is the problem since he can access the domain from his home computer.....Please clear your browser cache and try again

    What is your domain name?

    I Guess its just your ISP's DNS Issues. Try changing the DNS name server and access your website.

    It surely is a possibility because with some ISPs you can access through new NS within matter of minutes and with ISPs it does take more than 24 hours. So its only matter of time till this problem is resolved.

    That's it then.

    I don't know that many people out there blocking websites by name only. Anyway, I'd just wait a few days.

    Heck, post the name of the web site here and let us try and see if we can get there yet.

    Or, again, just wait.

    "hostit1pwh" is right. Changing namesservers took 24 to 48 hrs and due to this problem occurred. So just wait.
