Unknown Host Error

Both me and Rettro - at least - have been spending most of the day attempting to connect to the server, only to be greeted by the Unknown Host error. I've googled this error, and it implies that the address is incorrect, however, I have checked the adress, and it is correct.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong and if so, how do deal with it?

    It seems that there is something wrong with the domain redirection service. It should be resolved after a while.

    Happens every once in awhile, but only to specific people it seems. My IP has not changed, so the IP redirection has no reason to be out of date; I believe it may be No-IP generating hiccups. Luckily it disappears about 15 minutes to 2 hours from when the problem starts.

    Appears fixed. And more like 30 hrs Steeveeo.

    I think it was No-IP glitching up, the redirect was working intermittently for me throughout the past 2 days. Doesn't appear to be broken anymore, and I can't find the reason why it was. I logged into the No-IP account for it and everything was in order, and just after I did, it suddenly started working again.

    I have no idea what that was about, but if it starts happening again, I'll bitch to No-IP.
