OT: Web Site Access

I'm looking for some help/guidance/advice. I umpire youth baseball and I often visit a web site called Umpire-Empire.com. Or I did until this afternoon, when I got the following: "This umpire-empire.com page canít be found No webpage was found for the web address: http://umpire-empire.com/ HTTP error 404"

I tried getting in on a desktop iMac, an iPad, and two different PCs, with no luck. I sent a message to the administrator/owner through his facebook page, who replied that he could log in but had no ideas to offer.

I'm tempted to blame the Russians, but that idea is already taken by DC denizens.

Any suggestions (in very basic language, please--I'm a dinosaur when it comes to modern technology)? Thanks.

Maybe they did not pay there go-daddy bill.

It resolves to the destination IP and the last IP prior to that and the last one is godaddy. Could be a hung router? Or a hack?

How long has this been non accessible.

Sparky, I was on this morning, then about mid-day, nothing. One PC was at the library, one here at home. Does that implicate different IPs?

Tried Chrome and Safari, no luck.

Dan, it's bad enough that i have rabbit ears--now I'm blind, too?

You're basically getting to the destination and the door is closed and locked so you aren't getting in...

"Down for everyone or just me?"

Go to this website and enter the URL giving you trouble:

http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

Here's what it returned for http://umpire-empire.com/
...
"It's not just you! http://umpire-empire.com looks down from here."

(FYI: for me on my laptop it was just a blank white page, no error message)

A 404 error means there is no page ( file) to be found on the web server computer for the web address you provided.

The most likely reason for this error is the person responsible for maintaining the website did NOT specify a default web page for the website.

That is, the address you provided is the root/domain name address. Appended to that address is the name of the page (file) requested.

For convenience of its users website, administrators will configure and soecify a default page like index.htm or home.htm or default.asp, to spare the user from having to additionallly type that text as part of the web address.

Tell the website owner he needs to configure/specify a default web page.

On the site, an administrator wrote that the "server had a DNS IP change."

This modern world is too complex for me.

Now, we return you to our regularly scheduled program, cycling.
