Heres the issue. I have been super happy with godaddy for a few years. However this week I discovered my website is NOT working for anyone using At&t for ISP. this includes att cell service for mobile internet (iphone, ipad etc). Its been a week or so since I had checked last, so it hasnt been down long but its been a couple of days now for sure.
I can use ANY other ISP and its fine. I can even use a proxy server/site to bypass blocked sites like at a school, and it works fine. Go daddy tech support even confirmed they are having NO issues. A trace route of my site's ip address confirms, the hops stop responding at an AT&T owned ip address before hop 4, which is internal to AT&T. So basically the consensus is, AT&T blocked a range of ip addresses for some reason and mine was one of them. I cannot get AT&T to do anything about it. They blame go daddy, saying the shared server plans are bad because a spammer or something is on the same server and they block (which they will not confirm has happened, but discussed it) IP addresses, this could happen. I do not even have ftp access either. fortunately my email still works
I cant switch ISP's due to availability in my area, but that does me no good anyway, because my site STILL isnt visible to anyone using att ISP.. Im not paying godaddy $200+ a year for a non shared server to host a 5mb website with a few hundred mb's of bandwidth a year. If I just switch hosting companies, Ill get a new IP address by default and should fix the problem. THIS STILL SUCKS THOUGH..
Anyone else had something like this happen? Recommendations for a cheap but decent web host to switch to? I have site mirrored locally so all I need to do is upload it and reroute the domain name (registered through godaddy as well, but my other site is hosted elsewhere and domain with godaddy and works fine.)
the site is http://www.jasonjones-photo.com
if youre on AT&T, try it, and after it doesnt load, go to any proxy server and try it.. works flawlessly.
