Drifter is correct, you have a nameserver configuration problem. Here's the tail end of the output from dig +trace +additional www.grahamhancock.com: grahamhancock.com. 172800 IN NS ns1.grahamhancock.com. grahamhancock.com. 172800 IN NS ns2.grahamhancock.com. grahamhancock.com. 172800 IN NS ...

I could quote RFCs here and use technical terms, but this is a concept that gets missed by a lot of people on both ends of the knowledge spectrum and I'm going to try to answer this for the broader audience. I understand that this is considered a best practice, but this really seems pointless! It may seem pointless...but it's actually not! Recursive ...

Using the following tools gives a couple of clues https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/grahamhancock.com reports that the NS records on the domain point to ns1.grahamhancock.com.com notice the extra .com http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=dns%3agrahamhancock.com&run=toolpage also reports that the same nameserver is reporting as authoritative.

CNAME is not valid as the top entry (at the zone apex) of a domain. foo.example.com can be a CNAME and typically work as expected, but example.com (also called the "naked domain") cannot.

For each identity that one of your servers will assume (that is, each name a server will identify itself as), you'll need to have a certificate that matches that identity. An identity doesn't necessarily equal a DNS entry, but in cases when it does (such as web servers), it makes no difference whether the entries are CNAME or A (or even AAAA) records. To ...

*.mydomain.org. 3600 IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:IPADDR -all" as written above does not work if the spammer uses a subdomain that is already in dDNS. For example www.domain.com A A records foresides the wildcard in that case.

You could use BIND as a local resolver, it has an option to filter AAAA: https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-00576/0/Filter-AAAA-option-in-BIND-9-.html
