I have some free E-Mail-Accounts and a free Web-Account at Portland Com. Since some time at sunday, I do not get any connection to the nameservers of Portland Com. and I am not a customer of BT, but of the german Alice-DSL. I do not know, how this ISP was connected to portland.co.uk. But I tried to search for infos about this disconnection and got the impression, that most of the internet do not get a connection: ZoneEdit.com can not tell me the address of mail.portland.co.uk, www.portland.co.uk
in google-cache is from 26.7. and in some traffic-site, the traffic to www.portland.co.uk
dropped to or near 0 at end of July.
I guess some broken route to the DNS-Severs.
Can you give me an DNS-Server, which I may enter in my resolv.conf, which still have the mappings of portland.co.uk and is reachable from Germany?
