    My server wont resolve domains...

    Hi everyone!

    This is a little urgent since I was just about to show of my work for a business partner, but my cron-jobs just wont work since my server wont resolve other domains 4 times out of 5.

    I have a cronjob which is supposed to download a few images from different places, but here's the result:

    Resolving failed: Host not found.
    Resolving failed: Host not found.
    Resolving failed: Host not found.
    My resolv.conf contains one single line:
    nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx

    Any idea??

    Ask your DC what their name servers are then add them like:

    nameserver nameserver1(as IP)
    nameserver nameserver2(as IP)

    If you are still having issues, then use an IP address from another datacenters name servers

    This particular server is hosted by, but they might have a few different nameserver ip's huh?

    I mailed them a few hours ago but haven't received any response.

    Anyone else with managed?

    Should I restart the server after making the change?

    Is there any risk that something goes crazy? It's a production server so it can't be offline for a few hours.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Try using these:

    No restart necessary.

    I am using them at home ever since the Comcast DNS fiasco and they are resolving quite fast. However you should switch to your DC provided name servers when you got a chance.

    For a presentation you should be fine.
