Tried to access extremelights.co.za, can't do it when I'm connected to through an Afrihost DSL. Afrihost, please advise?

Afrihosts mails was off the entire morning yet their support flat out denied it.

This turned into a scummy company.

Moved my remaining mail to a new host.

To think I was about to give then another chance after all the lies during the afrihost saga to which Gian still has not publically acknowledge despite the countless evidence and phone recordings of outright lies.

OP for future reference you can test against a different DNS server without changing anything else.

nslookup website DNS-server

nslookup light.co.za 8.8.8.8

Just an end user. Internet Solution Afrihost Axxess all connected in some way.
Not really. Axxess use the Afrihost network but IS don't even interconnect with Afrihost from what I know. Their backbone network are completely separate and operate very differently from each other.

Just tried and I can't access it. I'm on Afrihost atm.

This is why we need Crystal Web to publish a snazzy client portal, lower their pricing a bit, offer rollover, hosting etc. They need the small stuff that pulls people in if they're going to grow into the biggest ISP and save unsuspecting consumers from themselves.

Pretty much everyone I know on Afrihost doesn't want to leave because of some combination of them liking the Clientzone, not wanting to lose Simfy access, free mobile data, web hosting with the same ISP, line hosted with the same ISP etc. Afrihost are good at creating switching costs for their customers.

Very true, the client zone is really neat, but no match to domains anymore now that I use both daily
