    Hello enkidu,

    Thank you for reporting this to us.  I will forward this concern to our development team and let them check what's happening. 

    As a subscriber of the said ISP, it would also be great for you to contact them so that you can inquire and get further details why your service provider could not access our domain.  This issue may also be just a temporary glitch on their system.

    Please keep us posted on the updates.

    I have also seen issues similar to this with BT before. 

    My workaround is to use different DNS servers while BT sort the problem out.

    I am using free DNS servers: They are:,

    Thanks for the chart Joey. Useful!

    According to it, it looks like possibly BT resolved this issue about 20 minutes ago. 14:11 UK time. 


    @Enkidu can you confirm you can access JotForm normally now, please?
