Works great here, however when I go to it at school it doesn't seem to resolve the domain ... but yeh, apart from that, excellente.

I'm not quite sure, they have their ISA server set up so that other blocked sites go to a nice "zOMG don't lookup porn or myspace at school!" page ... I guess they could have blocked it from being resolved via DNS, meh. Proxies FTW.

Haven't had any problems myself, but I haven't been visiting multiple times a day.

There's only been one time where I haven't been able to access it and it was about 3 weeks ago, but other than that it's been online every single time I've gone to it.

No, you are right. Ive just been trying to sort out the problem. Its because I use no-ip to direct the domain to my server. No-IP has been pi**ing around lately and keeps timing out, so Ive changed it so I edit one dns record for ALL the sites I host and it will correct their IP. Unfortunately its not automatic which means if the IP changes it wont work until I update it from my control panel.

Im going to try and find a way around it. However the site should respond better now.

The first time I visit, every day, it won't load. Second time (refresh) works fine.

Sounds like your ISP has slow DNS resolvers. I get that sometimes.

works like charm most of the time. Sometimes I can't access it from my dorm, but I suppose it's something temporary and because of my university's net connection.
