Does work?

Could someone check to see if they can log into, and verify the website is working?

I have followed that webcomic for years (it has been one of the most popular), and in the last few months I cannot log into the website from my computer, laptop, or phone. Looking at facebook or twitter, the artist is indicating that he is posting his work on the site and it is working. Is this just me? It is the only website I have a problem with. :cry:

If you could verify, it would help to figure out if it is their website, my ISP, or something on my end.

Any idea if there is a way to check if the ISP is blocking access?

So it is either me, or my ISP. Joy.

To check your ISP, run dig to see if your DNS can resolve the domain name. Open a terminal and do:

Code: Select all

When I run it, I get the following. Note the bits in read being important confirmation that my DNS can resolve the domain name.
vincent@nadia ~ $ dig

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>>
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 59190
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 0

; IN A

Try to visit, which is from above the IP address of If you can not resolve the domain name on your ISP, but you can access the website at its IP address, then you could consider switching to a DNS other than your ISP's DNS.

If you can also not reach this website at its IP address, the admins of that website may have banned your IP address (for spamming or other misconduct), or your ISP may have a block on this website and IP address for some reason.
