http://gapantenna.com/

Must be something local this side of the pond as nslookup does not give me a valid reply for their address

Will try another ISP and see what happens

There are a bunch of sites that will check if a site is up or down from their location.

Hi Dave,

I tend to use https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com
and shows the site as being up.

Intriguingly if I try http://gapantenna.com/
I also receive This site can’t be reached
gapantenna.com refused to connect.
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

here in West Sussex

From Germany it’s also not working, but if I use a VPN connection via a server in USA the website shows up without problems. Looks like some sort of geo blocking or DNS problem.

I have had several reports from European folks attempting to access my web store and failing. Probably related to the EU privacy debacle.

Thanks guys, Don't think it has anything to do with the EU privacy issues also cleared out all cookies etc and no change.
It looks like a DNS issue and somewhere in the chain from the masters an update error is occurring.

One thing you can try is to change your DNS server configuration. You are very likely using your orovider’s DNS servers. You can change that to e.g. OpenDNS or Google:

http://opendns.com
https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

There are reports from 3 different EU countries that the site doesn't resolve there.
Using a VPN to provide a point of presence within the US does.....
This would indicate it's the source site not the destination(s) that is experiencing difficulties, else there are EU DNS sanctions being applied  :-P

Who wants to try the site from elsewhere, Australasia?

If you whois gapantenna.com you'll find they have 3 nameservers set up
Name Server: NS1.VEROSOFT.COM
Name Server: NS1.KEYMANAGED.COM
Name Server: NS2.VEROSOFT.COM
DNSSEC: unsigned

ns1.verosoft.com. 3338 IN A 199.189.195.10
ns1.keymanaged.com. 10469 IN A 50.253.178.50
ns2.verosoft.com. 3307 IN A 199.189.195.11

ping ns1.keymanaged.com
PING ns1.keymanaged.com (50.253.178.50): 56 data bytes

It's dead Jim.

Fortunately the other two nameservers work

gapantenna.com. 1922 IN A 199.189.195.12

My advice (unless you are comfy with making temporary local host changes)
is to restart the browser and hope it catches one of the two working NS

If you can, put in 8.8.8.8 for your first name server and see if that does it. That's google's name server.
