DNS now done (I learn something new every day). Now we just have to wait for the update to take. If you want to test it at your end you can start a DOS prompt (start, run, cmd return) on Windows or a terminal window in Linux or MacOS and then type 'nslookup http://www.ditl.org' if it comes back with 66.172.75.35 then it's not updated yet. If it comes back with 213.175.214.202 then your good to use the names again.

Mine comes up with 63.251.179.13 as well as 8.15.7.117

What does that mean?

63.251.179.13 is the old number and I've no idea what 8.15.7.117 is.

Yeah, it was just different from the one you gave us, which confused me. IDK what the 8. one is either though...

When i type it in, it calls back the domain as non existent?

Then you should be able to use www.ditl.org in the url rather than the number.

Is this a new button or an existing one?
