  1. Very Frustrated. Have tried all the fixes, and some sites will just not come up, and return the “’s server IP address could not be found.” error message. Others come up just fine, very quickly and operate fine. Like Google search.,, Facebook, etc.

    I’ve tried all the recommended fixes, including DNS flush, change IP to 888 8844. etc. Then restarting computer. Nothing seems to have any effect

  2. I’ve tried all the fixes and nothing works. I have a brand new HP envy laptop that’s 1 month old. The only difference between now and a few hours ago (when all of the sites worked fine) is that my trial version of McAfee expired and I did not renew. I have restarted, removed McAfee completely in case the expired software was causing a problem, restarted again and again and I still can’t access sites like craigslist or my webmail through bluehost. I can access all sites through my phone and other devices, but not my brand new laptop that was working fine just hours prior.

  4. Hello! So, I tried everything you said, but now it`s showing “(the website) is unreachable“. Could you please help me on this? Thank you very much.
