Joker.com update

After further digging, it appears that this problem is a network issue:

A traceroute to one of my domain names which is set to use joker’s URL forwarding shows network unreachable:

DNSStuff, netcraft and all-nettools all report either network or host unreachable.

Netcraft reports:

We could not get any results for your selected site. There can be a several reasons for this:

The host name you have selected is not valid, perhaps it was mistyped.
We could not contact it, and we do not have any cached information for it. This can be because there is no server running on that site yet, or because it is a new site and the DNS has not yet propagated to Netcraft. It can be also be because of a temporary routing problem from Netcraft to the site.

What’s more annoying is that Joker has failed to respond to my support query, and have no indication of a problem on their website.

I have more than 10 domains registered with Joker, and this is affecting all those set up for URL forwarding.
