hostname not resolving to IP

Hello, Im having an issue where

 

ns1.hostbox.tv

and ns2.hostbox.tv are pointing (correctly) to the 107.182.230.82/107.182.230.83... which are the nameservers of my server... everything was working fine and then suddenly all of my domains on that box stopped resolving...

 

these hostnames are set inside the godaddy control panel... the nameservers are pointing correctly... BUT ns1.hostbox.tv and ns2.hostbox.tv stopped resolving to 107.182.230.82/107.182.230.83... any suggestions on what could be going wrong?

Hey @mhbernheim,

First let me say welcome to the community! Looking forward to discussions we'll have here! Smiley Happy

Have you checked with the host provider for the nameservers you're pointing the domain name to? They may likely have more ways to review what's preventing the domain from resolving to the specified IP addresses.

hi @CG! yes, everything is pointing correctly,  the strange thing is that even if I lookup ns1.hostbox.tv and ns2.hostbox.tv it would first hit godaddy's host and that should resolve because Ive added those IP's to the godaddy control panel, or am I wrong?

Hey @mhbernheim,

Sounds like you're referring to registering host nameservers? I can't see the settings you have specified in your DNS manager from here, but I did just run a public DiG test on hostbox.tv to confirm the following results returning on both nameservers.

 From here it seems like you might have been able to work out what was keeping the servers from resolving. That or it was just an issue of propagation.
