DNS issue cause temporary network problem

Due to nameserver and domain name issues, HWBOT was unavailable to a large part of the world this afternoon. In the next few hours, this problem should resolve itself. Our appologies for the hickup.

Sorry for this embarrassing error. It seems the domain name did not auto-renew yesterday, and it took half a day for me to realize. :/

I've gotta missed something - all that I've experienced was a long response when browsing the hardware and results pages. But this is usual. So what exactly should happen? :D I've been the whole day on HWBot every couple of hours.

Belgium richba5tard says:

Not everyone was affected. I wasn't, which is why it took me some time to realize something was wrong. Some ISP's where not able to resolve hwbot.org to an ip-address.

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

Oh, now I got it, thank you :)

It all depends on what DNS server you are using.. When updating it will take time to update for all other DNS servers..

Especially spread out over the world.
