What does ifconfig say? Perhaps your network card is unsupported by the kernel?

comment GoDaddy servers handling ajax calls
It's hopeless trying to troubleshoot this problem in a Q&A forum. It's going to involve code debugging, tracing, possibly packet sniffing, none of which we could effectively guide you through.

comment How can I prevent accidentally jacking with a production database?
@Falco Since prod environments should closely mirror dev environments, the configuration file would be in the analogous place on the prod server as it is on the dev machines. Any competent developer should know where to look, and if they don't know where to look, then you want that delay — precisely for preventing damage of the type stated in the question.

@Falco That's exactly what I'm suggesting though. Inconvenient but feasible.

comment Proper NTP configuration for a few servers
But at what point do you stop? Think of all the Linksys-class devices that ship preconfigured to use pool.ntp.org. Surely DNS traffic exceeds NTP traffic. Do you also have to cache DNS locally? Even DNS traffic is likely to be miniscule compared to the rest of your bandwidth consumption.

But consider the alternative viewpoint — twenty more clients on top of millions of existing clients is hardly anything.

comment How do I request a DNS flush on a remote recursive resolver from command line?
Even if you were able to flush the DNS servers you are interested in, the old entries would still be cached on who knows how many other servers out there.
