AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

my website GoBanter.com is hosted through godaddy and I have not been able to access it from any computer at my office and at my house where I have AT&T cable service. Spoke with GoDaddy customer service and they are reporting that it is a problem they are working on fixing with AT&T. 

 

Can AT&T block certain websites arbitrarily, is this an example of censorship like what they have in China?

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

I'm having this same problem too. I have numerous websites on a shared hosting account with godaddy and I'm unable to access any of them using at&t uverse, at&t dsl, and/or at&t iphones. I've tried a proxy and the sites show up, I've called godaddy and everything is working on their end. 

 

I need this problem solved! I have clients that are asking what is going on with their sites! I called AT&T and submitted a work ticket and I'm waiting to hear back from them. They said it would take 24 hours!

 

Someone Please Help!

I spoke with a customer service agent at godaddy who mentioned that a number of their sites have been blocked by AT&T and they are working on a solution but they dont know when the issue will be resolved.

My provider here at work is AT&T so it doesn't show up.

 

However, if you use a proxy site it works just fine.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

I'm having the same problem since Tuesday 10/16/2012. ATT was of no help, I sent Godaddy a request and said to Trace route and see where the problem lies. I did and sent them back the info but haven't heard from them. I know the problem is with ATT internet service as I can't log on using my iphone, house computer and work computer all on separate ATT accounts. My friends with Comcast don't have the issue. According to tracert it is failing at 99.167.141.18 owned by ATT in Richardson Texas. Hopefully we can get enough noise out and get it resolved ASAP. here is traceroute for www.an9el.com hosted by Godaddy Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.

I had no problem going to your Blog. I would say that Godaddy is the problem, not ATT.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

I am currently able to access both sites just fine via my U-Verse connection. (The an9el.com site is just an under construction page, but it loads.)

I don't believe this is willful censorship, it looks like from your traceroutes that this may have been a routing problem. AT&T frequently has routing issues like this, so this would not surprise me.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

I called AT&T And they stated the issue is with AT&T and they are currently trying to resalve the issue with Godaddy. I can see my site fine always could,  but I can't connect to my hosting account  using any FTP,  I get an error message like everyone else.  " Connection timed out, Failed to retrieve directory listing"

 

I called Godaddy and was able to get 4 months free of hosting because i pay by month for my hosting. They don't no when this is going to be fix, 8 days seems like weeks. that's how long my hosting been down.. Sucks

You may be better to find a local hosting company than GoDaddy. GoDaddy is about volume, not quality when it comes to hosting.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

Obviously not all of GoDaddy is having a problem with routing to AT&T.

Parts of the SJSig signatures used by several of the ACE's here are served from my hosting account at GoDaddy and they seem to be unaffected.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

My problem has been SOLVED, YAY. Thanks for all your responses and help. My site was down initially for a half a day when GoDaddy was hacked. It was completely down and I could not access it from any computer weather from my house, office, girlfriends house or phone. 

 

Once my site was up and running I had a strange problem where I could no longer access it using any computer which was accessing the internet using AT&T service. I was able to access it from my friends house who has Xfinity, I was also able to see it using my phone but could not access it from my home or office where I have UVerse. 

 

Finally after all these days, my service has been restored and it has everything to do with AT&T blocking service. AT&T has blocked multiple sites and now they are unblocking them.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

ATT has never blocked a site, unless they are considered a rogue site, or a rogue setup to DNoS or DDS various sites across the web. When they do, it comes from the top down to ATT's engineers to do the blocking.

Yep, I was able to access your site and we are U-verse subscribers.  No problem....except that I went to leave you a comment to your post on that site and found that I had to sign in to FaceBook to do it.  I refuse to have anything to do with that outfit any more so was unable to comment.

Re: AT&T is BLOCKING my site hosted by GoDaddy.com

My guess is that AT&T discovered a bot C&C server or malware server running on a domain sharing your site's IP address, then blocked it in two stages... port 80 and 443 were transparently proxied, with requests to non-blacklisted domains passed through, and all other traffic was blocked.
