    Kidstart blocking TalkTalk IP addresses? 17th Jul 19 at 11:18 AM
    Kidstart's a cashback site similar in its operation to Quidco and Topcashback, but it seems to be blocking all TalkTalk IP addresses:


    https://www.kidstart.co.uk/



    Anyone on TalkTalk fibre broadband care to check please? Seems fine for non-TalkTalk IP addresses.

    Very odd.

    This site can’t be reached www.kidstart.co.uk’s server IP address could not be found.

    Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.

    Looks more like a problem with their DNS servers than blocking it.

    Use Google's public DNS servers

    It's accessible for me via the Opera VPN, but I'm not overkeen on disclosing login/password details via that route.

    Your VPN will be using different DNS settings. So I still say its a DNS server problem that can be easily fixed.
