Nov. 16-18 Connection Issue

Taken from the news report here

We're aware of an issue where random users will not be able to connect to either the Curse Client, Curse.com, and/or other Curse sites. This is a temporary problem that should go away by tomorrow, the 18th.

We do apologize for any inconveniences this has caused, but please do not submit client support tickets related to connection issues until after tomorrow, Thursday the 18th.

Thank you, The Curse Support Team

This does not seem to be affecting CurseForge, WowAce or SC2Mapster.

You may need to clean your cache with: ipconfig /flushdns

If it does not help switch to Google's public DNS, they have new records.

    I don't know much about Curse.com setup, just that you need javascript and flash for it to work fully. Only reason I suggested another browser is because it might work, and then you can post something in the support forums about it.

    Hi Ackis, I only have one browser, IE 8, that 's all I've every used, not 8 but IE for the past 15 - 16 years or so. When I say I posted a few times, I meant at cures.com, coments or questions on a few of the addons, like benecaster, Natur enemy bar, Ozraid maybe.

    I tried hitting the Join now for free but that does the same, just goes to an IE page. I can download addons tho and search there.

    Edit after first one: I went to my post at benecaster, clicked on my name, went to my profile, clicked on acct setting and it logged me it! So maybe the buttons ARE broke?

    Try another browser Rhazzledazle. If you can hit the website, it's not related to the dns at all.

    I still can not login to curse.com, meaning I hit the login button and nothing happens. Been trying almost all day for the past 4 or so days, it just sits on loading then stops and I get this window "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

    Yet I can login here and other sites, have I missed something? I've been a member here since 2008 and have posted a few times.

    Long story about the issue is that it's been fixed for a day or so now. Curse changed something with their servers and updated the DNS entry. That's the technology that allows you to type www.curse.com into your browser and go to the server at the IP address 68.64.47.204. Now internet service providers (ISP) cache this so they save time/bandwidth without having to get the information all the time. What's causing the problem is that peoples ISP's are not updating with the new records.

    As long as your on the issue, I don't care why they aren't working. If you didn't know Curse, the addon's are still working. So Only thing I was worried bout was having a out of date addon. Thank You for working hard to resolve this.

    68.64.47.204 is the IP for Curse.com
