Turned out the domain hosting company have “upgraded” their DNS management which affected the settings. Took some finding, can’t take the credit though it was our IT support guys that sussed it out in the end.

I thought it had to be a DNS issue. Unfortunately, if the source DNS information is wrong, then switching ISP servers doesn't help. Still, strange how only some were affected, though!

The BMFA site is down again.

This time its listing as a SSL error. I reckon, this time, malware or a trojan has become attached and causing a security alert, either that, or something has been messed up again..

The server's security certificate is revoked!

You attempted to reach www.bmfa.org, but the certificate that the server presented has been revoked by its issuer. This means that the security credentials the server presented absolutely should not be trusted. You may be communicating with an attacker.

Paul, no need to spread panic. Its just the SSl certificate that has expired, the hosts are in the process of renewing as we speak.

All working ok for me. Both the main bmfa.org pages and the GoMembership! pages are all responding normally as far as I can see.

It was me. Made a slight error when redirecting a subdomain. All back up again now though.

I long ago (30 years or so) discovered that computers do exactly what you tell them to do. Unfortunately that isn't always what you wanted them to do

I like a man who readily admits mistakes. A man who never made a mistake never made anything.

Exactly Geoff - and that's what's kept me gainfully employed for the last 39 years!
