I have a domain name for a site that I am maintaining for a client. Being fairly inexperienced with DNS configuration, I'm having some trouble getting the domain name to point at the correct server consistently.
I currently have the following records set-up on 123-reg (the actual values here are made up, but closely reflect the real settings):
(TYPE A) "@" : "22.214.171.124" (TYPE A) "example.co.uk" : "126.96.36.199" (TYPE A) "www" : "188.8.131.52" (CNAME) "www.example.co.uk." : "example.co.uk."
This appears to work on most of the machines I have tested on - as long as they are not using OpenDNS. Looking at the CacheCheck tool on their site, OpenDNS appears to be picking up conflicting DNS results for each country in it's cache. One is correct, the other serves up some advertising page similar to this.
I ran a DNS traversal test on dnsstuff.com, and it reported 4 parent servers. The second 2 appear to be pointing to the correct machine, but the first 2 are pointing to what I assume is a parked domain name server:
dns1.name-services.com : 184.108.40.206 dns2.name-services.com : 220.127.116.11 ns.123-reg.co.uk : 18.104.22.168 ns2.123-reg.co.uk : 22.214.171.124
These 2 IP addresses match the 2 conflicting entries I am seeing on the OpenDNS CacheCheck service.
Right now I'm completely baffled. Is there anything obviously wrong with what I have set up? I haven't contacted OpenDNS yet, but wanted to get my facts straight first. What is my best plan of action?
