getting myfamily.com instead of LS

yesterday and today i’ve been getting a website called myfamily.com about 50% of the time when trying to get onto LS. anyone else experiencing this? if not, perhaps there’s something wrong with my service provider etc? anyone know how to solve this? thanks.

Or maybe Lightstalkers has become your family?

Julian, it is possible that your service provider, wherever you connect to to access the net, hasn’t updated their DNS database (Domain Name Server). This is usually done once a day by most providers. DNS servers are what match names (i.e. lightstalkers.org) to IP addresses (numeric addresses, i.e., which, by the way, is the current IP address of LS) Those numeric addresses shift, every once in a while, and it is the duty of the hosting company to report the change to the updating companies, whom in turn will propagate the change. In a given day, millions of those changes occur. It may be possible that your provider had the above IP address, the current LS address, if it belonged to them, still assigned the “myfamily.com” and your request was wrongly routed… That’s my long story for a common glitch…
