comment Troubleshooting DNS issue
Can you include dig output for the name you say that you have problems with (www.creativealchemyhealing.com)? The +trace +add options may be helpful in case something is actually wrong with the delegation.

comment What is the preferred method to restart networking in Ubuntu and Debian
stop and start are obviously not deprecated but used in combination they have the same potential problem that restart used to have.

comment What is the preferred method to restart networking in Ubuntu and Debian
I think it's worth noting that stop + start appears to do the exact same thing that restart would do. It does not appear to be any more safe, other than not using a deprecated option (deprecated specifically to discourage this operation).

comment Bind9 DNS resolves full domain to localhost
Windows doesn't ship with dig but there's nothing stopping you from using dig on Windows. The Windows builds of BIND include dig.exe isc.org/downloads

comment Bind9 DNS resolves full domain to localhost
@pdom without ANY would have been more helpful, that would match the actual query that would be happening (and we would get to see the A record as well).

comment How to know whether network card has failed in Linux?
@alfish That looks to be what was logged during boot. I was hoping for something from when the actual problem occured (either from log files or from dmesg).

comment Reverse DNS entry when using “external” dns server
dig +trace +add -x ipaddress should help you determine which nameservers hold the reverse dns zone that your IP address is in. That should let you know who to contact (I would guess the answer to that is likely that same admin who gave you the address in the first place).

Anything in the logs? In dmesg?

comment Should I change the SSH port to < 1024?
@SexxLuthor I think the opening statement "Conventional wisdom holds that the SSH port should be changed to something > 1024" may very well be controversial enough in itself to move the focus away from your actual question.

comment Unknown RR type in named - SRV exchange record
@BogdanBartos Hence why I was asking if there was any leading whitespace (which there apparently was!) and posted an answer explaining the importance of having the owner name to the very left. If you found any answer particularly helpful please consider using the voting and/or accept answer functionality.

comment Unknown RR type in named - SRV exchange record
The owner name is the left-most column. It's where you want to have _submission._tcp but where I suspect you may have whitespace.

@BogdanBartos Are you referring to the "sumbission" typo? That is not what my answer was about.
