is this the only site you are having problems with? when accessing it by phone, are you using your home wifi?

do a virus and malware scan and then flush your DNS

I've been having problems with this site (and only this site) using the Safari browser on the iPhone and iPad, constantly getting a "Safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found " notice.

But on the PC, everything's been smooth.

Yeah this has been happening to me.

Sometimes it goes through (like now) and other times it gives me "server not found"

Using Firefox but i also tried Chrome aswell. Can bring up the site on my phone just fine.

Sometimes I get that response on various sites and thankfully if I click REFRESH (or press F5 or return) it goes thru..........

I was having issues too. Using Firefox, I got a msg about a possible 'insecure connection' or something of that sort. On a whim, I put "https://" in front of the full web address, hit enter and voila - was able to log in

I unplugged my router and rebooted the computer and so far I've had no more problems.

when something like that happens it is usually a DNS issue (Domain Name System) - which means that when your browser requests a site like www.sitcomsonline.com, it gets converted into an IP address like 199.193.245.60, and to save time it will cache (temporarily save) those IP addresses, and if it changes then you will not get the site you asked for.

those cached IP addresses can be on your PC, in your router, in your ISP's routers or elsewhere in the internet infrastructure - the flush DNS will clear it on your PC, you can't do much if the issue lies elsewhere (although rebooting your router could help if it caches addresses).

you can find out if you are having a problem reaching certain sites by pinging the addresses or running a tracert on the address, which will actually show all the steps, and where the problem is (try running a tracert to google's address 8.8.4.4)

My laptop and my phone when using wifi, I can't access sitcomsonline at all, it instead gives another redirect site I can't explain. But when I switch off wifi in my phone, I can access sitcomsonline. That just happened this morning. Anyone know why?

Yeah, on my computer it is redirecting. I had a redirect virus before on my computer but this is different! It seems like it is only on SO it's happening, every other websites seems fine!
