Just thought I'd drop a quick note:

We'll be transferring to a new server sometime tomorrow (August 2 2014). During this time we'll have a banner on the top of the website noting if you're viewing the old server or the new one. We'll also be disabling form submissions on the old server indefinitely. We will have a mirror domain setup when we actually do the switch so you can use Merchz undisturbed. merchz.com could instantly resolve to the new server for most people but it may take some others a while due to ISP caching.

Catch ya on the flip side.

What do you mean by "though google" they simply redirect to us. What shows when you try to get through to merchz.com directly?

through google as in google search and i get this page is not available reload/more option and in the more it says

The server at www.merchz.com can't be found because the DNS look-up failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
Access a cached copy of http://www.merchz.com/
Search on Google

then i am able to go to it through the cached copy link.

Have you tried flushing your dns? Open up CMD and type 'ipconfig /flushdns' without the quotes. Have you been having this issue since we moved the site or has it appeared after?

Did you try resetting your DNS and DHCP clients?

I must have missed this thread somewhere, has your issue been fixed?
