    Re: linuxtoday.com not accessible from Sweden?

    There are only a limited number of options. If VPN is not your cup of tea, then you further cut down your already constrained options.

    It is possible that linuxtoday unknowingly uses a webhost that is on some ban list for ISPs due to their willingness to host malware/spam/darkweb. Different ISPs have different ban policies (and use different lists) which might account for the large variation in user connection experiencs (I can connect just fine). This is a pure, wild-eyed guess. There is absolutely no evidence so far that this is the case.

    If you won't do VPN and the linuxtoday guys are unresponsive, then the only remaining thing I can think of is to contact your ISP.

    The problem is that it's intermittent. Yesterday I could reach the linuxtoday site, but not today. But it seems to be getting worse and worse. But, as you say, I might contact my ISP.

    Re: linuxtoday.com not accessible from Sweden?

    using my VPN in NL i am able to get there with both HTTP and HTTPS. i do see that without www. (e.g. the apex address) i get a different IP address than i get for www.linuxtoday.com. they are using Akamai Edgekey for www.linuxtoday.com but not for linuxtoday.com. try including the "www." if you haven't been using it. also, Edgekey does a double CNAME (a CNAME that refers directly to another CNAME). this is technically not allowed by DNS standards (i'm guessing because a reference can be made to the correct host directly). most DNS resolvers don't care and accept it, anyway. maybe your's doesn't. or, maybe there's a failure mode with double CNAME that i am unaware of. or maybe that first server (without www.) is having issues (it worked for me just now).

    i do notice that www.linuxtoday.com at first shows no ad, then quickly reloads with one. i don't know why they don't have one when it first loads, which is not hard to do. perhaps it didn't load one the first time because ny VPN's IP address is in NL (in EU) and they used JS to detect that and load a fallback ad and it fails for some places. try disabling JS to see if you get any content that way.

    Re: linuxtoday.com not accessible from Sweden?

    I'm from Sweden too, and I had to use a VPN service to access linuxtoday.com too! The ISP provider that is being used here is Telia which is pretty much dominating the ISP companies over here. I used to check the news from Linuxtoday at a daily basis x amount of years ago.. so this was completely new to me.

    Re: linuxtoday.com not accessible from Sweden?

    I have another relatively big ISP here in Sweden too. I had Telia before, both ISP:s with the same problem. There's no logic to the ISP:s doing some wierd filtering, when all other sites can be reached without VPN. Well I haven't tested ALL other sites , but other big foreign sites like newspapers, TV-stations, Amazon, Ebay, other Linux sites works just fine.

    I'm dreading calling my ISP though, I suspect the support doesn't even know what DNS is. That's last on the list. Do you remember the old Windows support? "Reformat your harddisk and reinstall" Goddag yxskaft!

    Yeah... But honestly, what else would you expect from an outsourced service with people earning minimum wages?

    Had some time on my hands and tested dig +trace;

    Code:
    dig +trace www.linuxtoday.com 
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.11.3-1ubuntu1.11-Ubuntu <<>> +trace www.linuxtoday.com
