Can you ping the sites?
Use that command:
Code:
ping -c5 www.dagospo.com
And report the result

define can't access please?
was it something like connection refused or server did not responding in your Firefox or else?

Could you resolve both of the DNS using nslookup command for example :

Code:
# nslookup www.dot5hosting.com
Server:		8.8.8.8
Address:	8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	www.dot5hosting.com
Address: 65.254.249.20

hi!

Thank you very much for your reply. Actually, www.dagospo.com is my website and www.dot5hosting.com is my webhost. Here's what i got after trying your suggestions.

[raport@localhost ~]$ ping -c5 www.dagospo.com

[root@localhost ~]# nslookup www.dot5hosting.com

In my little understanding, it seems that the signal from the sites are intermittent or malfunctioning. I asked the webhost, the technical persons suggested that i clear the cache and other private data which I did but the problem persists. They also said that at their end they have no problem accessing the said sites. I also tried many computers but all have the same problem, except for one computer which has microsoft server 2008 system and internet explorer.

Not sure if it's gonna help, but this is something I got recommended to do and it helped.

PS: I'd check your DNS settings if I were you. Change them to those of Google (8.8.8.8) or those of OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 (resolver1.opendns.com) 208.67.220.220 (resolver2.opendns.com)) and try again.

It seems to me that your problem related to the DNS Server.

Try changing the DNS to Google's OpenDNS like @ranko_6 suggest. If it works, then report to your webhosting provider about it.

HTH,

you do now that fedora 9 is way,way,way past it's END OF LIFE
and there have been and never will be any updates to it .
for all practical purposes fedora 9 is and has been DEAD.

as to your dns issue ???
it is anybody's guess as to why your old dns service went bad.
OpenDNS is a good service , i have been using them for years .
