We've initiated a DNS transfer which may cause a temporary failure to resolve invelos.com correctly.  To temporarily correct the issue,  edit your hosts file to point to the correct IP.  Add the following lines to your host file:

74.53.166.114 invelos.com
74.53.166.114 www.invelos.com
74.53.166.114 static.invelos.com

Your "hosts" file is usually at c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc

The domain resolution switch is occurring now, so it should resolve correctly soon.  Until then, these changes will bridge the problem.

Bloody hell.  I was talking here no problem, closed the browser, opened up the browser, and no longer could reach the site and ended up at the "parked" domain instead.  Fortunately, this topic was cached by Google but was a little tricky to get since viewing the cached copy fired the frame support which took me to invelos.com on the wrong IP.  Viewing the site by IP address currently until I fix my host file.

Judging by the last post being three hours ago, it's hitting everyone.

ETA: You sure this isn't a behavior modification tactic to quiet people down?

musicprofiler.com?


ARGH!  There IS a CDProfiler!!!!

Editing my host file did the charm for me.  I should be good unless Invelos changes it's IP.

Nope when DVDProfiler is about profiling DVDs and not movies(!) then MusicProfiler is definitively about profiling music and not CDs(!).

I just renamed it adding the .txt extension, then edited it, then renamed again as it was.
I also use Spybot's lock on Hosts against hijackers, so I deactivated it before editing the Hosts file.

After several calls to network solutions, I finally convinced them to escalate to an engineer at about 3 am.  At 4 am the correct domain resolution began to propagate.  You should be able to revert your hosts file changes now.

If you're still experiencing any issues, try rebooting your PC.

I think you'd want to make sure you get this done.  Otherwise if the IP ever changes in the future, you'll be hard-coded to the wrong address.
Get the CSVExport and Database Query plug-ins here.
