Lenstip missing.

Does anyone know what happened to the Lenstip site? For days now I get Server Not Found.

I like the site and hope it’s not shut down.

That’s really odd. All I get is a server not found error. All my other regular sites are working fine.

Problem must be at my end.

You might have been hit with a browser hijacker. That happened to me a few weeks ago. I was unable to access the Best Buy website with one of my computers until I ran Malwarebytes on it, which removed the browser hijacker.

Re: Lenstip missing.

I just texted my friend, and he gets the same “server not found” message. He’s not a camera guy and has never been to that site before. Nor does he use the same ISP as I do.
Maybe a regional failure? Is anyone out there from western Canada? Can you reach Lenstip? This has been going on for 3 days now.

Saskatchewan here.  I was able to log on without any delay just minutes ago.  I tried several links on the page and no problems.

If he's never been there before, does that mean you gave him the URL? Perhaps you are using the wrong URL.

I get to Lenstip at https://www.lenstip.com/. (I just copied this address out of the address bar of Chrome, while it was displaying the site's home page that I found by googling.)

If that is not the problem, do you and your friend use the same Domain Name Server (DNS)? If so, see if you ca use an alternate one.

Re: Lenstip missing.

When my friend got home he was able to reach the site. He cannot reach the site from the phone network but can from his cable.

i cannot get there from either.

I wonder if Lenstip has blocked certain IP ranges due to nefarious activity or something.
