Earlier this week, I had moved my domain name from Domainking.ng to Garrantor because of Domainking.ng shut down. I transferred the domain easily to Garanntor and for a few days, everything seemed okay!.
After about 2-3 days a blog visitor emailed me about not being able to visit my blog. I too tried visiting my blog and the Error affected me too. Later that day (night) I tried using another sim card (MTN) and it opened but as the days went by my site became totally inaccessible.
I thought of what the issue might be and had no solution. At that point, I wondered if Google (BlogSpot) had deleted my blog for no reason. So I kept on searching for a solution on the net based on that error.
