The internet is broken: Panic!


Hello

I am definitely a newbie, and I cannot get my DNS records straight.

For the site vote-often.com, I have this (as an example)
Quote:
Name Type Value Select
ftp A 173.208.222.162
localhost A 127.0.0.1
mail A 173.208.222.162
pop A 173.208.222.162
smtp A 173.208.222.162
vote-often.com. A 173.208.222.162
www A 173.208.222.162
vote-often.com. NS ns1.hpturbo.com.
vote-often.com. NS ns2.hpturbo.com.
vote-often.com. MX 10 mail
vote-often.com. TXT "v=spf1 a mx ip4:173.208.222.162 ~all"
localhost AAAA ::1
When I dig ns1.hpturbo.com, I get this
Quote:
[root@server ~]# dig ns1.hpturbo.com

; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6 <<>> ns1.hpturbo.com
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;ns1.hpturbo.com. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
ns1.hpturbo.com. 172003 IN A 107.150.58.146

;; Query time: 12 msec
;; SERVER: 208.67.220.220#53(208.67.220.220)
;; WHEN: Mon Jul 21 15:46:24 2014
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 49

[root@server ~]#
I have no idea why my server is returning the 208.67.xxxx, that's not me?

And if I point my browser to vote-often.com, the site does not do anything at all....

Any idea?

Who owns the domain vote-often.com? You? If so, you need to login to whatever site you used to set up your domain name and change your Name Servers (NS) to the Name Servers used by the hosting company you're using to host your website.

It's a simple procedure. Once your new Name Servers propogate (a matter of minutes), your website should be accessible via the normal URL of vote-often.com.

Luck.

It's working from here and the DNS looks perfect at http://intodns.com/vote-often.com

if you still have trouble reaching the site, it could be DNS latency issues (propagation) on your ISP.
You can test this by such sites as http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/vote-often.com.html,
http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/vote-often.com and hidemyass.com.

Hmm... the URL the original poster provided (vote-often.com) is not loading for me in Chromium or Opera.

Code:
vtel57@ericsbane06~:$ ping -c3 vote-often.com
ping: unknown host vote-often.com
I see that the name servers have changed since I did a whois on this last night. The owner may have made some changes?

Code:
vtel57@ericsbane06~:$ whois vote-often.com

I get really nervous any time someone that's not familiar with DNS starts editing stuff willy-nilly.

It has been changed since last night.

OP prolly just needed 5m to reason it out.

Well, we're not going to know anything further until the original poster pops in here with some updates.

The page ( http://vote-often.com/ ) is loading properly now, so I guess we can assume that the original poster got it fixed. Maybe he'll even come back sometime and tell us what he did to fix it... and mark his thread ---RESOLVED---.
