Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a VPS server with a public IP, I added some A entries in my name server like svn.example.com -> 1.1.1.1

Also I added some entries in my workstation /etc/hosts file in order to work with the domains meanwhile the DNSs were refreshed.

It's been around 3 days from this and I configures everything in my server (using the hosts file), the DNSs are ready and I removed the entries but for my surprise I can access the servers nor anything in my domain or sub-domains (even a ping doesn't work).

I've triple checked and the DNSs are OK. I don't know too much about DNSs . Any help would be appreciated.

The IP address of my VPS is 74.63.223.43

I have these domain names, all pointing to the same IP (using A entries)

hartoingenio.com
www.hartoingenio.com
svn.hartoingenio.com

Can you post the fqdn? It should be quick to diagnose that way. –  Doug Luxem Mar 22 '10 at 22:23
