Do you have a default DNS set in /etc/resolv.conf? It should have a line like
nameserver XXX.YYY.ZZZ.VVV
Note that you may specify which DNS to ask using dig. Example:

These are wrong unless you have a DNS server running on the 192 ip machine or on the localhost.

You should contact your ISP and ask them what are the DNS server names and IP numbers for your connection/ISP/domain, and enter those valeus into the file /etc/resolv.conf
