208.100.50.24 is an IP address that identifies a specific computer. The URL has been changed not the IP address.

In order to navigate easily around the web, typing in a long IP address isn’t ideal, or realistic, to an online user. This is the reason why domain names were created – to hide IP addresses with something more memorable. You could consider the domain name as a “nickname” to the IP address.

A URL incorporates the domain name, along with other detailed information, to create a complete address (or “web address”) to direct a browser to a specific page online called a web page. In essence, it’s a set of directions and every web page has a unique one.

When this happened a few days ago, I was seeing the DNS problem with Firefox. Yesterday, every time I would try to open a page on OLS, whether it was a sweeps page or a forums page, I would get the message that the page had timed out, after several seconds of it trying to load. Or I got a message that Firefox was unable to open the site (or words to that effect) and to try again, but I never got the DNS message. I tried once to access OLS with IE, and I did get the DNS problem message.

I tried clicking on various links in my history of forums I had visited in previous days, but that got me nowhere. The problem resolved itself. I kept trying for several hours to access the site with no luck, then it finally was back.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

I don't know. Maybe they found a way to link them.
The complaints seemed to be based on which browser was being used.

I was having an issue with Firefox. Cleared my cache and that worked.

Try logging out and logging back in to OLS.
