I have tried from multiple internet providers and it simply appears to be blocked country wide?
Its not blocked, just some people in various countries arent able to access it.
It could be a BGP/ Network issue. Can you try a traceroute and see where it dies (does it get to a telco, and if so can you tell which one)? Does 188.8.131.52 work for you?
184.108.40.206 was a horribly abused address space in the past. We’re still workign with a number of providers to try and resolve.
I didnt knew about that.
220.127.116.11 works fine, when I traceroute 18.104.22.168 it stops at my local ISP:
Tracing route to 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com [22.214.171.124] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.1.254 2 18 ms 18 ms 19 ms gw-hsi-bng-tz2.bih.net.ba [126.96.36.199] 3 * * * Request timed out. 4 * * * Request timed out. 5 * * * Request timed out. 6 * * * Request timed out. 7 * * * Request timed out. 8 * * * Request timed out. 9 * * * Request timed out.
OK thanks for the report, I will pass it along to our networking team. You can also open a ticket on your own with your ISP if you like… couldn’t hurt and I’m sure they would love to hear from customers about the problem too.
This should be resolved now, can you re-test?
I can now ping and trace the IP:

But I can’t access https://220.127.116.11/ or receive dns replies:
nslookup google.com 18.104.22.168 DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds. Server: UnKnown Address: 22.214.171.124 DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds.
I am happy to report that 126.96.36.199 is working for DNS requests as of today.
