I am having issues with my Domain registered with 123-reg.co.uk
I bought the domain yesterday, and then I bought some hosting - I then assigned the domain to my host, and the website was working fine.
But my problem is, every few hours, my domain stops working, and when I type the address in like example.com (can't use proper address due to security reasons), it redirects to the 123-reg site and in the address bar, an IP address appears infront of the URL. eg. //220.127.116.11/example.com
Then if I try the address on another computer, it works fine, then later on the address will work fine again on my original computer.
Why does this process keep repeating? Is it something to do with it being a new domain? Do I have to give it time? Thank you
It could be to do with two different DNS servers and the domain name not proprogating throughout the DNS servers at the same time. It's unlikely though as the domain name wouldn't forward to an IP address - you'd just get a 'cannot display' error.
Contact 123-reg .. they're pretty good support-wise.
