    It's definitely a DNS issue. You can reach the page via IP address but not by domain name. When you go to yahoo.com it should resolve the address to the IP address, and it's not.

    Are you using broadband? dialup? It's likely an issue on your providers end and they'll need to be contacted for a resolution.

    What are your DNS settings? Are they hardcoded or is everything set to obtain automatically?
