Site was down due to non payment, I just went ahead and paid it for a month. I really hope the dev is ok.

Nice, thank you :D I believe the dev is ok but busy. His last forum post is from August 4th when he updated the beta key. The last MakeMKV version was also released only a month ago.

Website doesn't connect for me unless I make sure to put www. prefix, is it missing a CNAME record on the hosting site

be aware that, as this was posted, there is an outage at one of Amazon's cloud centers, which can affect DNS resolution for some users.

MakeMKV.com does not require "www", and the site is working at this time.

FYI, something changed because I can now only get to the site using www.makemkv.com. With out the www now issues a site time out.

Most likely it is because of an interaction with your firewall.

Code: Select all

# host www.makemkv.com
www.makemkv.com has address 104.21.49.241
www.makemkv.com has address 172.67.195.244
www.makemkv.com has IPv6 address 2606:4700:3033::6815:31f1
www.makemkv.com has IPv6 address 2606:4700:3035::ac43:c3f4
Using WWW resolves to the cloudflare system

Code: Select all

# host makemkv.com
makemkv.com has address 188.93.18.38
Without WWW, it resolves to direct to the server in Russia.

Code: Select all

# host forum.makemkv.com
forum.makemkv.com has address 172.67.195.244
forum.makemkv.com has address 104.21.49.241
forum.makemkv.com has IPv6 address 2606:4700:3035::ac43:c3f4
forum.makemkv.com has IPv6 address 2606:4700:3033::6815:31f1
Using FORUM for the host name, you're back to cloudflare.

Most likely, you have a geoblock on Russian IPs.

For me, all three host names work, because I don't geoblock Russia as a whole.

This was the case for me, sorry for suggesting otherwise!
