Nifty online tool to check if a website is down.
Not too long ago I went to a website to place an order. It wouldn't load. It wouldn't load in any of the five browsers I tried. Since the site is a large and reputable site I've been using for years, I was puzzled.
A bit of looking led me to the 'down for everyone or just me' website.
This is a great little web based tool that tells you if a site is really down. All you have to do is type in the name of the site and click on the "or just me?" link in blue.
Turns out the site was fine, and a recent installation of a security program was blocking access to the site.
Update: Since I came across this site the first time I can't count how many times I've used it.
Down for everyone or just me?
