Hi Gina,

Here are some links that may help...

However, looking at your trace (successful vs. nonsucessful),
 17   101 ms   117 ms   114 ms (This is Everyone's Internet,
Inc. Houston TX, NS1.EV1.NET--Looked up)
 18   109 ms   144 ms   139 ms (This is Everyone's Internet,
Inc. Houston TX, NS1.EV1.NET--Looked up)
 19     *        *        *     Request timed out.
Have you done anything recently to your site and the DNS settings? changed
domains? changed servers? Sometimes DNS caching can last up to 48 hours.

Here's a successful one:
13 (  58.789 ms  58.746 ms  58.552 ms
14  server6.usethisnameserver.com (  59.036 ms  59.175 ms
59.04 ms

Now, the last two hops on the above are Everyone's Internet, Inc. Houston
TX, NS1.EV1.NET. Why can I get to and not
server6.usethisnamever.com--when all the other locations I tried can???? To
me, this makes no sense.

Thanks for any input,

This is weird though. Your failed tracert hit #17 was
Allegiance Telecom Companies worldwide
(http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch?ip= and #18 was
Everyone's Internet
(http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch?ip= #13 and #14 were
also Everyone's Internet. The domain was added later, but I'm not
sure how that will help you.

Thanks again to dnsstuff.com, here's a tracert:
1. http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/tracert.ch?ip=ginaanderson.com
2. http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/tracert.ch?ip=
3. http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/tracert.ch?ip=

Both 1. and 3. work.  1. was your failed search. 3 was your successful
search. There could be something else along the way preventing a tracert to
