I think there's something wrong DNS-wise on my side.

I'm trying to visit this site:

http://goko.com/Dominion/gameClient.html

However, I'm getting DNS errors. If I try using the IP of the website:

http://8.31.166.14/Dominion/gameClient.html

It works but I can't actually do anything because the javascript is still loading from the domain. I know this website works as I've used other machine outside my network to access it.

What could be going wrong? Every other site works fine from my local network.

Go to your DNS settings and use 8.8.8.8 for your primary DNS and 8.8.4.4 for your secondary DNS.

This will use Google's Public DNS servers.

That fixed it. Weird that my ISP's DNS couldn't find it while Google's did. I should have thought of this before. – n0pe Feb 21 '13 at 22:07
    
That's always my default. So far, no problems. – Kruug Feb 21 '13 at 22:10

Thanks @slhck. MaxMackie, as for why this is happening, I have no idea where to even start. – Kruug Feb 21 '13 at 22:15
    
@Kruug Cool trick. Just learned something that's pretty interesting – Griffin Feb 21 '13 at 23:28
