Is anyone else seeing occasional DNS errors with cj.com affiliate links?
For example, if I click a cj.com affiliate link or simply paste the URL into my web browser ( e.g.: http://www. kqzyfj .com/click-XXXX-XXXX ), my web browser sometimes is unable to resolve the domain name www. kqzyfj .com and gives up. If I try again, it then goes through fine. Same for links with the other half-dozen or so cj.com domains ( e.g.: www. anrdoezrs .net ).
I have been seeing this problem repeatedly for a few weeks now for all the cj.com affiliate link domains and even the members.cj.com domain.
For all non-cj.com domains (e.g. forum.abestweb.com), I practically never see a DNS error, so it is not a problem at my local end and probably not a problem at my ISP's DNS server. I notice that cj.com uses Akamai.com (akadns.net and akadns.org) for DNS.
Not having links work on the first click is not good for sales! I have asked cj.com about this problem and I'm waiting for an answer from them.

You posted under cusimano forum so is this related to links made through your scripts or unrelated to cusimano?
Does this happen with one merchant in cj or various?
I will keep an eye on it and do some clicking today to see...

It is a cj.com DNS issue. Nothing to do with my scripts. If I simply paste a cj.com affiliate link (for any merchant) into my web browser, it does not work sometimes.
I will repost in the CJ forum.
