I am dealing with a barrel of weasels on this one. Ad agency registered the domain in mid-August with Network Solutions. 72 hours ago I updated the DNS to point to a host provided by an associate of the client whose credentials are dubious.
The DNS servers are at NETSONIC.NET (NS1 and NS2) and respond to ping no problem.
I can FTP to the server using its IP but the name is no go. The name is also no go for tracert and ping:
tracert voodoobbqfranchise.com Unable to resolve target system name voodoobbqfranchise.com. ping voodoobbqfranchise.com ping: unknown host voodoobbqfranchise.com // Note that using dig to query other domains // hosted on that server returns just fine dig voodoobbqfranchise.com @ns1.netsonic.net ; <<>> DiG 9.6-ESV-R1 <<>> voodoobbqfranchise.com @ns1.netsonic.net ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 38967 ;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;voodoobbqfranchise.com.

Can anyone give an opinion as to what is up here? Is the host account misconfigured?
