    At first i thought something went wrong during the recent'ish move of the server.
    But it's been a few weeks and i can't load any Advrider page.

    Tried:
    Vivaldi and firefirefox (windows)
    Chrome and tapatalk (android)
    Clearing cookies.

    Don't know what to do.

    Any insight about why this might have happened and is anyone else getting a similar problem from elsewhere?

    Perhaps the Putiebots weren't doing a good enough job in here - so Putie decided to block access. :D

    I had to use an online anonymiser site...

    Which leads me to believe the restriction MIGHT be due to my location.

    We don't have any Geo restrictions in place here. Are you receiving an error page of some sort?
    From your windows computer, can you provide me with the output of `nslookup advrider.com`?

    Sure, thanks for your reply.

    I get the following:

    " address: 18.205.169.1

    DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
    DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.

    *** exceeded time to wait for request for Advrider.com (translation)


    By the way, vivaldi browser showed also
    "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT"

    Maybe when they meet Trump can ask his buddy Putin to fix this. :-)
