Question by Teresa Ollison /

Lately, when I try to check my messages, on AOL, after signing in and checking on mail, it goes to a screen that only says “Welcome to Nginx”.

That’s it. I still cannot view my mail. How do I get rid of this page, and how did it get here?

      Try clearing your browser cache. If that doesn’t work clear you DNS cache by opening up the Run… dialog box and typing “ipconfig /flushdns” (without the quotes) and pressing enter.

      Hey Kat, Bruce Eppers answered this question a little further down the page and directly above your comment:

      1. Nginx is open source web hosting software, which DeviantArt probably uses for their website. Don’t worry. It’s nothing to be concerned about and can quickly be switched.

      2. Bruce suggests clearing your DNS cache. I took some screen shots and here’s what it should look like:

      3. If that doesn’t work, try wiping your cookies using Ccleaner:

      Be careful with Ccleaner, though, as it can cause some problems if used improperly. However, its usage is relatively straightforward after installing it.

    It does not happen in Chrome . When I am on Internet Exploere and Firefox and the address is not valid or a non reachable address I´ve got the welcome to NGIn or 404 not found and ngin. AS the browsers address bar has been changed in its search tool. Chrome has google on its bar, so it does not show the message. Hosts file is Ok. Run several malware cleaning tools and still have Nginx as a nightmare . Also cleaned everything I could

      Contrary to popular belief, Nginx is not malware but a web server designed for high concurrency applications.

      Have you tried flushing your DNS cache by opening a command prompt and typing ‘ipconfig /flushdns’? This will normally fix the issue as your DNS resolver is forced to get the potentially new address for the affected site(s).

    This page shows.. “welcome to Nginx” and that’s exactly what it is, a welcome message page, so what you do after is go to top of the browser and reload the page clicking the little curved arrow, tara! there you have it! problem solved..
