I've recently set up a private name server (
ns2.mediamechanic.net), and it appears to be working for everything except our
.org domains (see obapps.org).
As far as I can tell, the failure is happening before the request ever makes its way to our server, so presumably something is wrong on the side of our registrar (eNom).
When I do a trace on a working TLD (.com, .net) I get this:
=================================================== Sending request to "e,gtld-servers.net" (220.127.116.11) =================================================== Received referral response - DNS servers for "iclaimpreview.com": -> ns1.mediamechanic.net (18.104.22.168) -> ns2.mediamechanic.net (22.214.171.124) =================================================== Sending request to "ns1.mediamechanic.net" (126.96.36.199) =================================================== Received authoritative (AA) response: -> Answer: A-record for iclaimpreview.com = 188.8.131.52 -> Authority: NS-record for iclaimpreview.com = ns2.dallas-idc.com -> Authority: NS-record for iclaimpreview.com = ns2.dallas-idc.com ===================================================
A .org yields this:
=================================================== Attempting to resolve DNS server name "ns1.mediamechanic.net" (details not logged) =================================================== Failed to resolve DNS server name - error: No such host is known =================================================== Attempting to resolve DNS server name "ns2.mediamechanic.net" (details not logged) =================================================== Failed to resolve DNS server name - error: No such host is known =================================================== Failed to resolve - no more DNS servers left to try ===================================================
It seems that for the .org, it’s unable even to find the name server, which doesn’t make a ton of sense, so I’m at a loss.
