Why does it take so long for nameserver on server to reslove?
Why does it take so long for nameserver on server to reslove? My name server is ns1.24traffic.info and ns2.24traffic.info. Right now I'm forced to use the fdcserver supply ones untill I figure out whats wrong with my. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Those DNS servers can be used by anyone, but I doubt abuse of them is why your load is high. I tried to dig @ns1.24traffic.info and it responds quick enough, so I don't see why that would put load on your server.
You mean that youve put these in resolv.conf? You should only put the FDCservers dns'es there, and use your two nameservers only for your own domains. You should not use them as general DNS. In fact, you should disable the relay of non-authorative lookups since it can be used in some nasty ddos-like ways.
