Windows 10: Webpage won't load in FF or IE but is OK in Edge Solved

    Webpage won't load in FF or IE but is OK in Edge


    New to W10 (from W7)

    I have been searching/reading here but can't see the answer.
    The problem, a certain webpage and my home page http://www.whiskey7.org won't load in FF. I get 'Server not found'

    It works in Edge and I am rather new to that so prefer to stay with Firefox.

    In IE I get the error message 'This page canít be displayed'

    My son (remote and yesterday) reported the same thing and it also happens on my laptop (W7 install) next to me.

    I am a bit confused as to why it works in Edge but not Firefox or IE. and seek advice please.

    Seems like the site is down : Whiskey7.org - Is Whiskey7 Down Right Now?
    Check your proxy settings if you have any, that may be the issue.

    Thanks. I forgot that site isitdownrightnow.com so I will check with the host.
    Confused, still it loads in this new Edge browser and the counter for visits increases.

    May be edge is loading a cached version of the site. But the visitor count makes that notion not solid. Any way it says down when i check out. And it didn't worked on my edge browser either.

    Thanks Shadow Delta.
    I just telephoned the web site hosting company and they suggested the domain name had expired!
    That was incorrect as I have an email to say I've paid up to 2019. I checked then with NetRegistry and confirmed all OK there.

    I called the host back and it seems to be something to do with updating nameserver data so I will hunt around there.

    As I suspect there's no W10 problem just a strange coincidence I will mark as solved.

    I was just mighty suspicious as I'd just got the new PC and I am learning to drive W10. When I couldn't access the site on W7 (laptop) I only got more confused and the comment from my son increased the level of paranoia.

    Glad to know that the issue got resolved.
    Hope that site comes up soon, the domain name seems interesting.

    Cheers,
    Shadow Delta.
