Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In firefox, everything works great: http://www.laddercapital.com works fine, and http://laddercapital.com redirects to the www site.

In IE8, mysteriously, http://laddercapital.com displays an error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

I checked the server headers here: http://www.stepforth.com/resources/server-header-checker-tool - and it reports a 301 redirect.

What is going on?

IE 8 works fine here, it gets redirected to www are you sure it's not a local issue?

Thanks for checking, sorry for the false alarm! I think it was related to the Bing search bar in IE8... and since not a lot of people use it... I decided not to worry. –  Summer Jan 29 '11 at 2:40
