.... try typing in pbase.com rather than your Pbase.com - although should not make any difference, worth a try if not OK after clearing your cache.

Just to report that I have no problems whether small or capital used.  Also try the full URL i.e. click on the following link.  There is also the slight possibility it could be the browser you are using:

Re: Pbase Gone?

I'm in the UK and am seeing the same as the OP on my home PCs.

I have tried Pale Moon and IE on windows, plus Pale Moon and Firefox on Linux - all fail to show the correct pages.

However, on my android phone using 4G, I get the correct pages from PBase!

domain just expired/renewed, whois info for pbase.com

The domain registration for pbase.com just expired and was renewed (expires again next year on August 10, 2016).

It's not uncommon to see issues when that happens, sometimes taking a while for DNS (Domain Name System) records to be updated in all DNS servers throughout the world so that they're pointing the correct IP addresses when your browser looks up the domain name (pbase.com in this case) via the DNS servers you're using..

See whois info below that I see with a whois pbase.com command from a terminal in Linux (I'm using my wife's laptop right this minute, running in Kubuntu 14.10):

Re: Pbase Back Up

They have posted a message about the problem:

http://www.pbase.com/message.html

The PBase servers are up and running with no problems. There was a networking / DNS issue that is preventing access to servers for some people, but not all.

If you are experiencing missing/broken pages, images, or stylesheets, it is due to this networking issue.

Steps have already been taken to resolve the issue, but it takes time for the changes to propagate through the network. We have done everything we can to resolve this as quickly as possible. Your patience is greatly appreciated while we wait for the update to reach everyone.

Because this is a networking issue, your emails might not reach our servers right away. We will answer your emails as soon as we can.

Thank you.
The PBase Team

Use http://66.179.240.29/ for now...

Until all DNS servers are updated with the correct IP Addresses for pbase.com (see my last post, as they just renewed their DNS registration), you can get to them by using this IP address:

http://66.179.240.29/

IOW, by going directly to their IP address, you bypass any problems associated with DNS lookups until all DNS servers have been updated.
