    Hi, puff-m-d and snapdragin

    Same as I am [was] getting.

    So does that mean no more Lavasoft Support Forum.

    Thank you both for getting back.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    The expiration date on the DNS record was Oct 3, 2004 so more likely than not this is just one of those all to common domain name renewal problems. They are very likely working hard on resolving it.

    No, looks like the "Dark Lord of SWI" himself (Mike Healan) will pick it up for them if they don't catch it in time, then transfer it back over. ;)

    :)

    Ooops! Sorry LWM, didn't see your post. Dang you're quick! :D

    I am sure there will still be a forum, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.... It might be that they have to come up with a new domain name if they let it expire and somebody else jumped on it... But all is just speculation at the moment.... Only time will tell...

    I haven't been over there in a while so don't know if Lavasoft is still active there, but in addition to their "home" forums Lavasoft also used to have some at subratam's excellent Kill Spyware forums. Try taking a look there too?

    I just clicked on it and still got the redirect from here. It may take time to propogate the DNS updates.

    Thanks Ronjor ...

    Didn't realise someone would be waiting in ambush when click on the link.

    hmmm ... OK in that case I will edit my link just in case someone got some nasty surprise.

    Cheers

    What the heck is going on? Earlier I was getting the message that the domain had expired. Then later I saw that it had been renewed and I thought the reason I couldn't get to the site still was a DNS issue but it seems that should have resolved by now. (It has been 24 hours since I saw that the domain had been renewed). Anyhow, now Proxo reports:

    Host Name Lookup Failed

    The Proxomitron couldn't find the site named...
    www.lavasoftsupport.com
    Check that the name is correct. If so, the site may have changed or may no longer exist.

    Others at dslreports also are getting the same message.

    I looked up their IP address and pinged it in Ping Plotter and got reverse.theplanet.com.

    I just clicked on the link you left Mele20, no problem here (~ 7:30 AM east coast US time), the support site comes up fine. Guess it's still a matter of propogation of the information.

    I'm STILL getting "Host Lookup Name Failed". :(

    When I try to update the definitions (I don't have the latest), I get told I have the latest, but that is not true.

    Someone definately got to tell Lavasoft about this.

    It's creating too much uncertainty.

    Well, I still cannot get there and cannot get new definitions! I have old ones. This is disgusting. :( :( :( They should not put the definitions on the support site.

    Why does it take this long to propogate the DNS updateso_O? This is a very poor way to have a healthy internet.

    I just clicked on Tassie Devil's link posted above and went there immediately. There were 403 guests and members online.

    First I get this:

    Results Returned for "lavasoftsupport.com":

    Name: lavasoftsupport.com
    Address: 67.18.82.90

    Then:
    cPanel
    There is no website configured at this address.

    You are seeing this page because there is nothing configured for the site you have requested. If you think you are seeing this page in error, please contact the site administrator or datacenter responsible for this site.

    Country: UNITED STATES

    Then:

    Preparation:
    The reverse DNS entry for an IP is found by reversing the IP, adding it to "in-addr.arpa", and looking up the PTR record.
    So, the reverse DNS entry for 67.18.82.90 is found by looking up the PTR record for
    90.82.18.67.in-addr.arpa.
    Asking f.root-servers.net for 90.82.18.67.in-addr.arpa PTR record:
    f.root-servers.net says to go to dill.arin.NET. (zone: 67.in-addr.arpa.)
    Asking dill.arin.NET. for 90.82.18.67.in-addr.arpa PTR record:
    dill.arin.net [192.35.51.32] says to go to NS1.THEPLANET.COM. (zone: 18.67.in-addr.arpa.)
    Asking NS1.THEPLANET.COM. for 90.82.18.67.in-addr.arpa PTR record: Reports 90.67-18-82.reverse.theplanet.com. [from 216.234.234.30]

    Answer:
    67.18.82.90 PTR record: 90.67-18-82.reverse.theplanet.com. [TTL 86400s] [A=None] *ERROR* A record does not point back to original IP.

    Where my ISP looks:
    Roadrunner #1 [No cached answer: Would go to NS of com.]
    Roadrunner #2 [No cached answer: Would go to NS of com.]
