    Service Unavailable - DNS failure

    Service Unavailable - DNS failure
    The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later.


    i get that like if i type in words for a search in address bar and sometimes if i type whatever.com etc

    why?

    Could be the DNS server is/was down. Seen that a few times over the years.

    http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum97/82.htm seems like your not the only one.

    I would delete cookies, temp internet files, and history.

    Make sure to dump temp internet files not only from your browser but also from documents and setting> Whatever your username id name is> Local settings. You should see some temp folders there and such. make sure they are empty too.
    If it ain't broke, you arn't trying hard enough!!

    I had the same experience a few days ago, but it only lasted for a few minutes. No problem today.

    It's been that way for me for the past couple days. Weird.

    steppenwolf--Any better success today?
    Is this all sites? Are you using dialup or broadband? Are neighbors with similar setups having the same problem?
    Did you install some new soft/hardware just before this happened?
    You do not tell us your version of Windows. If this is a recent problem you could try
    1) Win 98 family--Scanreg /restore from a MS-DOS prompt or resetting your DNS connections in winipcfg
    2) WinXP family--System Restore or DNS settings in ipconfig.

    I posted a possible solution in this forum today. You might want to hold off and see if it works for wolfe70.
