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

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

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

TIA

Looks fine now.... likely wasn't configured at the time you tested.

Thanks, yes. We managed to convince person providing hosting to examine the settings at the host and his edits corrected it. Thank you for looking –  jerrygarciuh Sep 13 '10 at 21:32
