    What would explain this activity?

    Hey guys,

    I'm slightly confused and was looking for a little bit of direction.

    We have a client who made the move to us yesterday and wanted complete assistance with the migration. His hosting was with "company b" while his domain registration is setup over at 1and1.

    Anyways, I changed the DNS on the domain last night once the transfer of the files was complete. Today his domain appears to be "dead" for me.

    I've never seen such activity on a domain. For me in the past it's always seemed to goto old host / new host once DNS was changed. Why would it appear dead?

    Thank you kindly.

    Have you ran a DNS lookup check to see what the domain shows?

    http://intodns.com/<yourdomain>.<tld>

    Thank you for the link. Let me see what it's reporting...

    Mismatched NS records
    Multiple Nameservers
    Nameservers are lame
    Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers
    SOA record
    MX Records
    WWW A Record

    That's a lot of red

    Anyways, does something like the above seem like a DNS change related issue or is there something more going on? I'm wondering if our DNS Cluster is causing these issues!?

    It possible that things haven't had time to properly switch over in the DNS world yet (propagate). If it's not fixed by this time tomorrow, which should be over 48 hours, I'd start investigating other things.

    What happens with you PING the domain? Do you get the new IP or the old one?

    Not to sound stupid, but is the domain spelled correctly on your end? (cPanel account)

    Absolutely that's possible. The DNS only changed during the 3-4 hours I was in bed. I'll definitely give it a little more time.

    Pinging the domain returns no IP which was confusing me. Just an error.

    I "think" so. Let me double check the domain settings here in a moment.


    Thanks so much everyone! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the help.

    I believe you are suffering domain propagation, it will pass in 24 hours
