    Default ALERT: PayPal Express Checkout Error () - (6) name lookup timed out

    Hi

    Been having customers complain that my paypal express checkout is broke. Ive also had a few wmails though

    ALERT: PayPal Express Checkout Error ()
    - (6) Couldn't resolve host 'api-3t.paypal.com'

    &

    ALERT: PayPal Express Checkout Error ()
    - (6) name lookup timed out

    However ive put an order on myself and it went on fine.

    My gut is this is a temp (poss dns) issue with a paypal payment processing server

    Has anyone else come across it or can shed any light on it?

    Regards

    Gareth

    Yes, it's a DNS issue.
    It's not got anything to do with any PayPal servers though. DNS problems like "unable to resolve" are problems with *your* server's DNS configuration, or at least with the dns service your server is *using* to do DNS name resolution. (ie: as specified in the server's resolv_conf)

    If the problem persists, notify your hosting company, and/or the server administrator.

    Cheers for the quick reply DrByte. The server is a dedicated one and ive not touched any of those settings for ages. Maybe my host is having some dns issues. Ill go do some investigating

    Thanks again for the quick responce.

    Regards
