AT&T and Comcast blocking 000webhost.com IPs and domains
I can’t remember exactly when the first tickets were submitted by users about not being able to access their websites, think it was about two years ago or so. When checking i had no problems accessing those websites, neither did anyone else of the the 000webhost.com helpdesk team. We had users testing if they could access the websites via Proxy Servers or Proxy Services like http://hidemyass.com which worked fine for them. Some users also reported that they were able to access the website using their 4G phone with Verizon as provider.
All this lead us to believe that Comcast and AT&T, for whatever reason, put some IPs assigned to the 000webhost.com servers (each server has 32 IPs assigned to it) and /or the 000webhost.com domains used for free subdomains (uphero.com,webatu.com,netai.net, etc.) on a blacklist which, in turn, prevented Comcast customers from accessing sites hosted on the affected IPs or domains. User also posted on the Comcast forums, sadly no official statement was posted in response. Neither was there an official statement from AT&T, who also seem to block 000webhost.com IPs and / or domains.AT&T
If you are a customer of Comcast or AT&T i would love to hear if you are able to access your site(s) hosted with 000webhost.com or not. We occasionally receive tickets about said issue, and also see posts on the forums but the number of them has decreased somewhat. So they probably removed some of the domains or IPs from their blacklist. If you cannot access your site please let me know which domain and server IP it is hosted on. This might help me narrowing down what domains are affected by the block and i will forward this to the 000webhost.com admins to sort out the issue with AT&T and Comcast
