rockauto Offline?

I've been trying to order something on rockauto for the last couple of days and can't access their site. Is anyone else having this problem?

Thanks Labnerd

This is weird. I can access all other web sites that I have tried but I can't access rockauto from my home computer or my iphone when using the home wifi. However, if I turn off the wifi service to my phone, I can access rockauto with my iphone using verizon?

I just called spectrum customer service (in the Phillipines) and the girl couldn't find anything wrong. She rebooted the modem and that didn't help. She checked to see if the modem was setup to block that site and it wasn't. So, a service rep is coming tomorrow. Probably need a new modem. It must have decided on its own that I didn't need any parts, that I should trade my truck for a new one!

That's big brother "blocking"... They want you to go spend your money at your local autoparts stores. The government doesn't see enough taxes being funneled through you. lol

Now I can access rockauto again!? Maybe the call caused something to happen afterwards? My stepson who graduated with a BS in computer science said it could be the DNS which as he explained was sort of an address book for the internet.

Your stepson is likely correct.
