All websites in the
fsnet.co.uk domains (e.g.
www.divdev.fsnet.co.uk/scicaf.htm which has an update date on the page) sometimes show their latest version but sometimes show their March 2014 version (but never an intermediate version). If one accesses these sites in two windows via two routes (eg with and without the
www, or via a proxy server) one sometimes sees both versions of the site at the same time. This has been going on for weeks and happens on all networks and devices and all geographic locations - UK, Germany, South Africa and USA anyway.
When website owners upload to their websites, the upload goes to IP
18.104.22.168. However, internet accesses to freeserve websites sometimes go to
22.214.171.124 but sometimes go to
126.96.36.199, and I think
188.8.131.52 must contain out-of-date March 2014 versions.
I am not an expert (hence this post) but it seems to me the problem is either a DNS routing issue, i.e. one of EE's DNSs is wrongly routing website visitors to
184.108.40.206 (intoDNS shows an SOA Serial error for the
freeserve.co.uk domain but I do not know how significant that is), OR (if it's EE's intention that
freeserve.co.uk websites are supposed to be duplicated at these 2 IP addresses) the problem is that updates to
220.127.116.11 are not being copied across to
18.104.22.168 – and have not been since March 2014.
Is the above plausible? Could there be another cause?
