    Default Important! Read this! Urgent!

    Due to some skullthuggery beyond our control, it is possible that FDRX7.com will effectively be put off-line for an indefinite period.

    You can avoid this (or resolve the issue should it occur) by following the following tutorial :

    https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/2735...ur-hosts-file/

    and adding the following entry to the file (hosts) described there :

    198.204.227.178 fdrx7.com

    I strongly suggest you either do this NOW, or copy this text and make the change if you are unable to contact FDRX7.com.

    Hopefully this will be resolved before it becomes an issue.

    We'll also post updates on Facebook if necessary. https://www.facebook.com/Fdrx7com

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Regards,
    Stig and the Admin Team.







    Regards,
    The Stig.

    er... whatnow...?

    That link is telling me how to BLOCK a website. Are we trying to block our own site?


    EDIT: Done. It looks like this...




    Is that right?

    No, doing that will bypass the part that is likely to be a problem (DNS).

    If you get the numbers wrong it will block it though, for sure.

    So we are blocking the DNS (domain name) of fdrx7.com

    Is this what you want Stig. The DNS of fdrx7.com mentioned (thereby blocked) but not the IP address of 198.204.227.178, instead a dummy IP address of 0.0.0.0?

    This issue has now been resolved.

    If you made the change to your hosts file, you can now delete that line from the file.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    No, don't use 0.0.0.0 .. use the line exactly as I posted above.. (198.204.227.178 fdrx7.com)

    But no need, the underlying issue has been resolved now!
