having issues with loading the site with google chrome on android.
It gives a maintenance response.
strangely, opera mini opens it and most threads work, witch was the opposite before the downtime:)

Chrome will have cached the old DNS records, which is why you are still going to the old site (which is in maintenance mode).

The issue could be with the ISP, as Opera uses their own servers for processing web requests before serving the data to your browser. Is this using wifi or mobile data network?

@MattW
wifi. it worked perfectly for an hour or so on chrome, then back to same maintenance message

opera mini still works, but that has its own issues due to slimming down the data.

normal opera and explorer suffer same problem as chrome. maintenance. only opera mini 'works

edit: This is all using a samsung s4+ with latest android version

edit 2: i switched of wifi and tested by mobiledata. same result

@Melle, it might just take a little time for the new IP's to replicate through all the DNS, the majority of them are done within 24 hours, although for some reason it can take upto 48 hours.
