    Hi there,

    My blog http://www.frenchtouchmusic.net is down since yesterday. Apparently the problem happens only in the US or at least in California where I'm based. I asked some friends based in Europe to check and it works perfectly.

    I tried to empty the caches of my web browser but the problem is still here.
    The error message says that the server stopped responding. I can't access to the website via FTP as it doesn't connect because of "time out"

    Any idea?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is frenchtouchmusic.net.

    As the is a geo-specific problem, it's not a WordPress issue. You might want to try contacting your hosts about it, though.

    Works fine in California for me.

    Thank your for your feedback.
    Any idea why some people (including me) don't have access to it?

    How a website can be down for some people only?

    Yes. There can be a problem within a DNS server somewhere in a localised network. Usually the problem clears within a few hours as the servers are normally updated regularly.

    Works in Arizona. As esmi said, it may be a DNS issue. Or possible a firewall block.

    You might try one of these services to see if the site/domain is down in the future:

    or

    You may also try check dns or take a look at one of the many tools pingdom has to offer:
