Hi,

A client has sent a website onto me asking why it won't open on his iphone... i checked it on my iphone and it was obvious it was not working, i then checked it on my laptop (macbook) and realised it wasn't working on that either, so i presumed the site was just down.

However my client came back to me and pointed out that it was working on his windows machines etc... how could this be so? I understand that you can add a query to define the platform but no one has added such a line of code... so why would it stop working on apple devices all of a sudden?

Thanks in advance for your help...

Perhaps there is something wrong with the DNS?  The URL cannot be located from my side of the pond.

If it helps, I'm on a Mac in USA and can't view the site either.  I tried in Safari, Chrome and FireFox - all reported that that site cannot be found.  

I also looked it up at MXToolbox which says it does not have any A records, and has not been registered by anyone.
