    I need some help.

    I am having trouble getting on one site on the Internet. A message comes up:

    This site canít be reached
    www.answering-islam.org took too long to respond.
    Search Google for answering islam org
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

    Do any of you know what is wrong and how to fix it?

    Thank you.

    try the IP for now -- just use this instead of www.answering-islam.org

    78.47.104.146

    Sometimes there are problems resolving the names.

    I tried this and when I clicked on a link the answering-islam.org appeared again ... which would require you too replace that again with the IP.

    Hopefully the issue will resolve itself.

    This is what I got using 78.47.104.146

    This site canít be reached
    78.47.104.146 took too long to respond.
    Try:

    Checking the connection
    Checking the proxy and the firewall
    Running Windows Network Diagnostics
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

    it was slow for me, but it came up after about 10 seconds.

    Maybe there are some internet problems with their server, or in your area in particular.

    We had a similar problem several months ago when someone did a DDOS attack on theologyweb. We had to install a filter to get back online till the traffic died down.

    You might need to clear your cache, and delete any cookies.

    Until you get it working you might try Answering Muslims run by Acts 17 Apologetics. David Wood wrote a number of articles for Answering Islam as well, so they have a lot of the same information. He's also got some pretty funny videos on youtube.

    There is some pretty disturbing information on there, especially with regards to Mohammed's life.

    If you are using a laptop at home, try it somewhere else. If it works there, then it is your home wifi. Or try using a different browser, if you normally use firefox, try chrome, or vice versa.

    Unless they maybe blocked your IP for some reason? But then trying it from another location would work.
