UFOHQ is hosted at hostgator, runs on wordpress and uses cloudflare.


The front page of the site shows youtube hosted videos via tubepress.


Today, on http://www.ufohqs.com 

instead of the tubepress video gallery, I see this error message:

Couldn't resolve host 'gdata.youtube.com'


The folks at Hostgator say there is nothing wrong on their end.


I've made no changes.


Can anyone point me in a direction to try and get this resolved?


Thank you.


This is the first time I've had this problem with tubepress.

Hi UFO Hq,


I just checked your linked page above and it appears everything is working probably.


The error you saw is related to DNS (translating a friendly name like google.com to an IP address like  Tubepress does not provide a DNS, so the issue could have just been a hiccup in one of the many DNS servers your site may have tried to use.


Let us know if you are still seeing the error message though.
