An A record has been added to one of our domain name over a week ago. Unfortunately, our current DSL ISP (Bell Sympatico) does not seem to find this new record. A simple DIG or NSLOOKUP fails using their DNS servers. But when using OpenDNS, everything works fine.
Is the problem on my side or should I wait a bit longer?
My dig report using opendns :
; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <<>> client.mydomain.com

I don't have this information as this particular domain is hosted on a shared environment thus I only have Cpanel. I assume my host added the zone with WHM. But one week for a subdomain, that's way too long.
