Sites being blocked on Virginmedia

Hi, I run a web development company.  Today a bunch of our sites are blocked and innaccessble on VirginMedia but accessible via my phone, etc.  The sites are up ... but it seems like VirginMedia is blocking the server ?

try pinging 176.126.168.146   down a VM pipe, and I'm getting


Pinging 176.126.168.146 with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 176.126.168.146:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

 

but if I do that via a different network

Connected to: ( 176.126.168.146 ) Response Time: 81.7TTL: 53 No. of bytes: 64

etc.

Sent: 4 Received: 4 Time: 3001

In addition, if I use any browers, or mail app, or ping tool via the Superhub the sites are blocked, but if I use a Tor browser through the same Superhub then the sites all resolve fine.

Does anyone have any ideas.

An example site:  https://opalsphere.com

A very boring website.

Re: Sites being blocked on Virginmedia

that site doesn't work me and i don't use virgin DNS.

also, that domain name is showing as not registered.

Re: Sites being blocked on Virginmedia

There are issues with your site when clicking on More Info under Hosting

Site error: the ionCube PHP Loader needs to be installed   

This is a widely used PHP extension for running ionCube protected PHP code, website security and malware blocking.

Please visit get-loader.ioncube.com for install assistance.

You need to stick to one thread otherwise you will have people running round chasing their tails.

My advice is to go to your >> Other Thread << and ask the mods to close it down.
