I have my hosting with Godaddy.
I have changed my Primary Domain from vivmajor.com to bitestation.com. Before that I was testing my new site in the subfolder vivmajor (which now is serving vivmajor.com)
During tests the Iframe in the site was working fine ( The IFrame is calling the whois folder - so the path ...vivmajor.com/whois/ when called in an Iframe was giving results for domain name search)
Now after the change in Primary domain from vivmajor.com to bitestation.com, the call to the IFrame with path ...bitestation.com/whois/ opens the page but when a name is input for domain name search I get the below mentioned error.
Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to whois.crsnic.net:43 (Connection timed out) in /home/content/v/i/v/vivmajor/html/whois/whois.php on line 98
Error: (whois.crsnic.net) Connection timed out (110)
Also, the Drupal contact email is also not getting through.
The Godaddy support is saying that it is not a server issue.
Maybe not. But I have no clue about what and where is wrong.
It would be really great if someone can point to any solution.
Please note that I am not able to give the complete URLS as I suppose this being my first post I am not allowed to post urls.
This is my first post - please excuse me for any mistakes!
@vivmajor: what I can see there is that either whois.crsnic.net was down (which should be rare) or Godaddy somehow blocked all outbound connections to whois.crsnic.net due to an attack.
Having a PHP script that could allow anyone (including robots) to perform a whois on your site without a human verification or limit, could lead to an indirect attack to Verisign in this case, and I'm sure Godaddy doesn't want that
