    When I am at home, I no longer can reach the ctrlr-forum (‘site cannot be reached’ message)

    When past week I was on the web some 100 km from home, I couuld reach the site only after clicking away a message that the site was not secure.
    Today, 100 km from home, I can reach ctrlr. At home I can not!
    I’m sure at home there is nothing wrong with my internet: all sites can be visited as expected, except ctrlr.org
    Hundred km away from home, my friend is using the same provider as I do at home, and I was using the same chromebook in all cases.

    Is there anyone facing similar facts?
    Is there anyone who can explain this strange behaviour?

    Many reasons why..

    When you ping the connection to the Ctrlr Site you will see it passes a few servers. You do not make a direct connection. It goes from one server to another to another to another and then reaches the server where the Ctrlr site is hosted. Now depending on how fast the provider recognizes that a certain server is down, the connection gets restored or routed to another server to reach the same end.

    In that case, you’ll see that you might not get a connection with a landline but you can get a mobile connection or vice versa. The same goes for the provider that your friend uses might be different from yours thus avoid that server that is down.

    You could even try a VPN because it makes a whole different route than your provider does. You could even try google translate (uhuh!!) and set languages from English to English, because google translate routes the website over its own servers. (And funny enough, that gives a 404 as well at the moment).

    I think that the web site /technology Ctrlr is built upon is also not fully stable.

    @dasfaker
    is handling that and maybe he knows more…

    I know that dasfaker is just maintaining the site (btw. without being paid for). But he has no full control over it. He has no access to domain, provider, webspace and the like.

    The site needs a PHP update since a long time. To do so, a backup of the site’s database has to be made, and I can’t do it, I have no access to the server.

    I’ll contact Atom about the issue.
