DNS Issue?

  1. Hi

    When I try and access my blog ( either through my Google Browser or Internet Explorer, it keeps not displaying and displaying intermittantly. After mapping my domain name to my blog everything worked fine, then for a few hours stopped working. It came back for a whole hour, then disappeared again, each time displaying a "Oops! Google Chrome could not find..." or a "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message. I can't work out if it's an issue with just these browsers, or the site as a whole (my assumption). Diagnosing the issue with IE it mentioned the DNS. I have not created DNS records for the new site, and wonder if that is responsible. I have looked at the support documents for creating the DNS records, but find it very confusing. I need the site to be stable so that people can visit it. Does anyone know a) if the problem sounds like a DNS problem or b) how I can fix the issue I am having?

  2. Don't get carried away and changing things - DON'T mess with things - it looks like you did things right.

    The site resolves fine for me. It can take 24 to 72 hours for things to settle down and changes migrate to the far corners of the internet. You can also have problems with local caching at your ISP and other routers. You will probable be the last one to see your site stable.

  3. @auxclass Thanks, that's very reassuring. I'll be sure to bear that in mind. I will take that into account and if within a few days it is still not displaying correctly I'll be in touch.

    Thanks for the advice!

  4. You be welcome
