If you've been using ClearCloud DNS for your DNS lookups (A service of GFI/Sunbelt) you need to be aware they are discontinuing service on September 1st. If you do not change your DNS settings before that date you will not be able to access the internet!
My suggestion, at this time, is to change to Google's DNS service if you are in the USA. The primary DNS setting is 184.108.40.206 and the secondary DNS is 220.127.116.11 If you are outside the US you may want to try OpenDNS (primary 18.104.22.168/secondary 22.214.171.124 or primary 126.96.36.199/secondary 188.8.131.52) or look into using your ISP's DNS server.

The reason given is more or less the same for terminating all the above:
