Some GoDaddy Hosted Custom Domains Are Showing Connectivity Errors

This weekend, a few owners of blogs published to custom domains are reporting problems viewing their blogs.

We are seeing various reports, such as unhappily reporting
CANNOT VIEW MY BLOG!
If we view the blog ourselves - or maybe if the blog owner uses one or more proxy servers to view the blog, the blog will be seen with no problem. Apparently the blog is actually online, regardless of the original observation.
Now what?

In many cases, the blog in question uses GoDaddy hosted DNS, and a specific set of GoDaddy servers, to provide domain addresses to the blog readers.

If we use a WhoIs Log extract, we can see the defining factor in this problem.
artprojectsforkids.org@ns25.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
artprojectsforkids.org@ns26.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


www.artprojectsforkids.org@ns25.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
www.artprojectsforkids.org@ns26.domaincontrol.com.:
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Right now, GoDaddy name servers "ns25" and "ns26" are currently not responding, to domain address queries.

The domain itself is live. We can verify online status, and see that some readers in various portions of the Internet are able to access it.

We're still researching the support options, for this problem. I've identified a link to GoDaddy Live Support, which you may try if you are affected by this problem.

Use this Live BHF Search, to identify individual reports of the problems, and to follow the diagnostic process.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
