Ryanair website

Was wondering if anyone else is having difficulties accessing www.ryanair.co.uk ?

I have been trying to book some tickets for 2 days now but I keep getting the same message


"Network Error (dns_server_failure)


Your request could not be processed because an error occurred contacting the DNS server.
The DNS server may be temporarily unavailable, or there could be a network problem."

Is this a problem with my PC or a global issue with Ryanair ?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

I have no problem with the ryanair main page - not tried to go further.

Are you having problems with other pages?

It could be your PC or your ISP.

I am having no other difficulties with other web addresses... just RyanAir. The main page does not load only shows an error message as quoted above

Not a bother - will use another PC and try again...

Cheers anyway.

Do you still have the same problem if you try .com instead of .co.uk ?

Something is fishy with the RYANAIR website. They are surely losing sales unless they do something.

The problem, PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED is showing on all the servers in Maltese Islands and therefore it is not server specific, though on some servers in the UK the website is working.

It also relates specifically to www.ryanair.com . Any ideas on what can be done?

The website is not loading on all MALTESE servers for the past two days though working on some UK servers. Something is surely wrong with the RYANAIR website and unless something is done about it, ryanair's gonna lose some sales so..

Its true, the ryanair website is down on a number of servers, I do not know the reason .

I need to book a particular flight, what shall I do? Shall I have to fall at the mercy of Air Malta prices?

Very strange I have had no problems at all, what happens if you put this in the address bar

193.95.148.90

It should take you to ryanair's site.

Are you using Orange broadband by any chance? I've also had this problem and called Orange - The lady at the other end of the phone said that orange are aware of a fault with their network which is causing the ryanair website to be blocked.

Ryanair

No I do not use Orange internet, but a local ONVOL internet service (www.onvol.net), one of the leading ISP's in Malta.

What happens if you ping www.ryanair.com?

What happens if you put http://62.73.129.180 in your browser?

Same response to both mate

Network Error (dns_server_failure)


Your request could not be processed because an error occurred contacting the DNS server.
The DNS server may be temporarily unavailable, or there could be a network problem.

For assistance, contact your network support team.

Me: Freeserve/Orange broadband

Me: RyanAir website = not found

Me: following all the other numerical suggestions in both IE and in Firefox = nothing (An alert comes up saying that www.ryanair.com could not be found). I have guessed at addresees for RyanAir in Germany and Italy and the samething happens. Just an alert for www.ryanair.com not being found.

Can't get the website either. Trying from Denmark for 2 days now.
Needed to book 400 seats! Just have to use another carrier!!
This will be costing them a few pennies.

ryanair website

I just wanted to be known that I have not been able to reach the Ryanair website since thursday. I live in northern Italy near Milan, and I have tried from various computers and locations but to no avail. At the office I've got Adsl with 56 k guaranteed bandwidth, but this has meant no difference. The website is always not accessible.
