With some difficulty, I found out where Linux keeps the Host Table (/etc/hosts), went into it with VI (the only other obvious choice over an SSH connection was EMACS, and I haven't used THAT in over 20 years), and added a host table entry for the requisite domain, and without even having to restart anything, it all started working again. It still can't reach GOOGLE, but who gives a #### whether a server can do so?

Thanks to all who pointed me in the right direction. The real key was the page Mihael referred me to,


which clued me into the resolution issue.

Funny thing: others around here didn't believe me when I concluded (concurrently with everybody else on this thread) that it was a DNS problem, but to quote Conan Doyle's most famous character, "When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however unlikely, must be true."
