Is it just me, or did most of the internet just go down?

Is it just me, or did most of the internet go down for a little while?

I tried going to google: could not
tried frihost: couldn't go
tried hotmail: couldn't go there either
tried several other sites, both major and minor: no good
tried www.onet.frih.net (my frihost account): worked!
tried equinedream.org: worked!

...Then I figured it out: it must be showing only cached pages; so I went to a part of my forum that I knew I had never been to before (the profile of the newest member). It worked fine! I wasn't viewing cached pages!

tried rfl.frih.net (since frih.net apparently worked): no go.
tried all the others again: none worked

ping www.google.com: couldn't find host
ping www.equinedream.org: ping came back perfectly

waited a while

Tried the others again, and everything worked.
The only explanation I can come up with is that most of the internet (besides my websites) was down! That couldn't possibly be, could it? So what really happened?

I get this all the time, and I'm not quite sure why. It's sometimes with my personal server, which I know is on and sometimes it's Frihost or simply Google.

It's your connection really. I never have problems with my connection except if it's screwed. Twisted Evil
Anyway, when you try to look for a page, then it's normal he starts looking with all different kinds of servers for the webpage/application, so when you can't find the page, then there could be something wrong with your connection in the way he communicates with the other servers that look for the site. Offcourse, I could explain this much better in my own language so I understand if I confuse you a bit.

That is a good site, but somehow I suspect that I wouldn't be able to get to it at the time...

Not sure.. I was playing world of warcraft the other night, and blizz's servers crashed and their main site was down, and there was a 24+ page post about the server being down. Thats bout the only thing i've encountered recently tho.

The symptoms you report strongly indicate a DNS failure at your ISP.

Your may want to use the free opendns.com servers as your backup DNS servers.
