Custom Name Servers not resolving

Hello, I am not sure if I did anything wrong but I have updated to custom nameservers and even added hostnames and their IPs to my domain that is currently hosted on a separate VPS (not Godaddy). When I ping the nameservers they work just fine. However, my intodns report shows me there is something wrong with how the nameservers are rendered from Godaddy. Please advise. Site has been down going on 12 hours. And according to whatsmydns.net, only 5 have it resolved: https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/africanblockchain.org

So I took a quick look, and it appears matchstick.tech (what you are using for your name servers) is using hover.com as their name servers I'm not sure if ns1.matchstick.tech is just an A record or if it was actually register as a name server (it has to get submitted as a host).

 

Personally unless there is a reason you need to have the VPS be your DNS, I would just leave the DNS on the GoDaddy Servers - I think you'll have better success

It appears more DNS servers are picking up the domain now and 1 has ns1.africanblockchain.org
ns2.africanblockchain.org
