I am in a world of DNS Hurt

It started after I registered my new domain:

and used the same Domain Registrar BlueHost as my partner:

I then needed email accounts and used RackSpace to register 2 email accounts for

I pointed the MX records to RackSpace and they both worked, as expected.

I was not ready for a website of my own, and got the permission of my partner to point my domain at his site.

I tried various methods including a CNAME record, adding a WWW record, and finally got it to work.

I tried the email, but this time it failed.

I was told that the MX records of pointed to Zoho. So, I dropped RackSpace and used Zoho to host my two email addresses for

It seemed all to work.

Until it stopped working.

Since then, I have gotten the following block coming from somewhere...


I can not even type the domain directly without blockage. But sometimes it does work.

So I proceed to click the "Agent Logon" button at the bottom and the page is blocked for the route:

I tried this from my iPhone, and it works. I tried in my three browsers on my Mac, and they all fail.

I used my Tablet, and that also was blocked.

What could be the problem?

Did my router get black-listed somewhere?

I accidentally tried my tablet using my home router, and it was blocked. When I then connected my tablet via the Mifi, it seems the Mifi IP was then also blocked.

What is going on? Is this BlueHost issue?

Is this a problem with the host for banccertified? Am I black listed?

I am shut out but I need to read a report on my partner's website. I will see how far I get on my iPhone, but really need some screen area.

I am totally perplexed!

I have cleared cookies, but it feels much bigger than that.



I find Chrome now works but fails on:

Also, my iPhone works but fails on :

Safaris does not work on
