I was wondering if someone has a solution to a 'RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: name lookup timed out' problem which keeps popping up on my wordpress admin area!!! I can't update anything and moving from page to page is very sluggish. I've deactivated plugins, tried contacting my hosting company but I'm still left with that rather annoying message.

Trouble is, I can't remember doing anything to cause it!!

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Have you tested your name servers to see that they are configured properly? I have never seen this error message before so I don't know what it really refers to. I would start by looking at the name servers and see what they are doing.

I don't actually know how to test my name servers!!!
But I'll try the plugin option and see how that goes!

Thanks Michael_Martinez & dazzlindonna!
