will not open in Safari on my iPhone!!

So, this has been happening for a while and I really don't understand it. When I enter "" in the address bar in Safari on my iPhone and hit "Go", it immediately changes to "". It won't go anywhere, and then I just get the "...server stopped responding" message.

The same thing happens if I Google the verge and click on the link to the home page in the results. However, if I click on one of the specific Verge articles in the search results, it goes to that page fine. Then, if I tap the Verge logo, as a link to the homepage, the same "" thing happens.

Chrome on iPhone opens no problem - it's just Safari that won't do it.

Very, very strange. Has anybody else seen this?
