View Full Version : redirected to alpha UK Site

Without being asked:
Typing www.alphasoftware.com is redirecting me to http://alphasoftware.co.uk/
I would prefer to access the site in the US.

Is this because I am connecting from Europe (actually from Greece) and you have decided to move all European users to the UK site?

I just tried it from Florida and it directed me properly to the US site?

I assume this has to be an American site for this to work. Interestingly I was able to access the UK site without a problem a few weeks ago. (I cheated and downloaded a trial version of 11 before they released it here.)

But thinking about this, I should try to find a similar service in the UK so I can access some of the Doctor Who stuff on the BBC website.

From my place I just come to the US site

It must have something that senses your location from your IP address, and directs Europe to the UK.

as an aside - I LOVE Dr. Who!

Down here in Oz I get directed to the UK. When I remote in to a US site and try, it goes to the US page.

....ditto on Dr Who :-)

Also in Australia, during the weekend I was redirected to the UK site but I think that was because the US site had a problem (at least when I tried to get on it).

Yesterday and today, I go straight to the US site.

Wierd, Ken.

From Surrey BC, a suburb of Vancouver, Canada, www.alphasoftware.com goes to the US site.

Also get redirected to the UK Site from Ireland - Bugged me at the start but got over it. The UK guys seem to provide the same service and in fairness when I had an initial problem with access to downloads it was resolved very quickly.

This URL will get the US site - don't know if this will remain in place into the future.

In Toronto it is a 50/50 crap shoot. sometimes US, sometimes UK very frustrating...

Steven, that's interesting, I'm just a couple of hours down the road in London and I always get to the U.S. site.
Must be an ISP thing?

Has anyone who is getting redirected tried deleting their DNS cache? From a command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns
Just a thought.
