Maybe your (and the others having problems... endbase, sbone...) DNS hasn't updated yet. I got new IP-Adresses:
- IPv4: 88.99.25.113
- IPv6: 2a01:4f8:10a:1b0::1

Could you please check if your DNS is up-to-date?

Great :thumbsup:

For such "important" server based services, shouldn't you all use DynDNS or other similar name services, to avoid using IPs that might change at any server hardware reboot or other issues at provider side?

That's why the Domain-Name-Service exists (which I was using and use ofc.). 8-)

I can't believe that NC1 uses the IP in the /etc/hosts and not the DNS... but... lets see what they say.

undef - maybe using a lower TTL than 86400 for the A and AAAA entries on mania-karma.com is a good idea for the future. Especially when an unreachable api causes such issues in Uaseco.

In relation to that - I wonder why the web requests are made with file_get_contents and not with curl, where a reasonable timeout could be set.
