Indeed. What's funny to me is all those names posted above all being keywords and links to some crappy sites they are trying to get backlinks for. Would be a good time for this site to set links to nofollow. LOL.

On Saturday June 05, 2010, we experienced a temporary redirection issue with one of our nameservers.  Our response team immediately took this nameserver offline as a first step in correcting the issue. Shortly thereafter, we took extra measures to ensure that all websites at our Las Vegas datacenter would resolve properly.

Further we have instituted preventative measures to reduce the risk so that this type of situation does not happen again.

We realize that some may still be affected by this. If you are still being redirected to blackinternet.se, there are certain steps that you can take to clear this up and have your site resolve properly.

1.  Please clear the cache from your internet browser.
     a.  Firefox – Go to Tools > Clear Recent History > Check: Cookies and Cache >Click ‘Clear Now’
     b.  Internet Explorer – Go to Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Browsing History > Click
                                             ‘Delete’ button > Check: Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, History > Click  
                                             ‘Delete button
     c. Google Chrome – Go to Customize and control Google Chrome (top right icon that looks like a
                                      wrench) > Options > ‘Under the Hood’ tab > Privacy > Click ‘Clear browsing
                                      data’ button > Check: Empty the cache and Delete cookies and other site
                                      data > Click ‘Clear browsing data’

2.   Please flush the DNS cache from your computer by taking the following steps:
              
        Windows 2000:
        a.  Go to start > run
        b.  Type: ipconfig /flushdns

       Windows XP:
       a.  Go to start > run
       b.  Type: ipconfig /flushdns

       Windows Vista:
       a.  Go to start, in search bar, type: cmd
       b.  Type: ipconfig /flushdns

You should then see:
      C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig /flushdns
       Windows IP Configuration
       Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

--If you do not, go to:
       a.  Start > all programs>accessories > command prompt > right click on the command prompt icon and ‘run as administrator’
       b.  Type: ipconfig /flushdns

       MAC (OS Tiger and below):
       a. open a terminal window
       b. type: lookupd -flushcache

       MAC (OS Leopard):
       a. open a terminal window
       b. type: dscacheutil -flushcache

       Windows 98/98SE/ME:
       there is no dns cache flush option on these operating systems.(restarting pc may help).

If you still cannot access your site, please contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).  When you reach them, please let them know that you need to have their DNS Cache flushed.  They will know how to proceed in doing so.

You may also visit http://proxify.com and type in your URL to view your website outside of your network.  By viewing your website in a proxy server, you will see what everyone else resolving to your site sees.

Please note that this issue has been resolved on the Lunarpages end since early Sunday morning.  Any sites that are still resolving to blackinternet.se are a matter of caching.  Most servers that hold cached sites update within 72 hours; some take longer.

Attention Blackberry Users:
If you are unable to receive your email on your phone, you will not be able to flush the DNS Cache on the phone itself.  One way to expedite receiving your email is to change the nameserver of your email to the IP Address of your account’s server.  

This IP Address may be found in your control panel.  If you are using cPanel, you will find the IP Address in the left column, second row. It will look like this: Shared Ip Address 67.210.109.205.  If you are using LPCP, you will find the IP Address in the URL of your control panel.  It will look like this: https://216.227.220.85:20082/myadmin/index.php,  where 216.227.220.85 is the Shared IP Address.

You may also email us at support@lunarpages.com with the subject line: Need My Server’s IP Address.  If you send us an email requesting this information, please provide us with the username or primary domain name of your account.

You may also call our support team at 714-521-8150 option 1, then option 3.  Let us know you are on a Blackberry and need the IP Address of your account.

We apologize for any inconveniences this has caused any of our customers and are here to help in any way we can.


Thank you for your continued support,

Greg Keil
Customer Service Manager





Domain Name Servers (also known as DNS servers) are used to point your domain name at your email provider, domain forwarding service, and/or web host provider.  This tutorial will show you how to point your domain name at specific name servers, such as name servers provided by your web host.
