Ocassionally some users have problems to connect the their websites, they can connect to the server via browser and can ping it and tracert the server IPs fine, they can also browse domains having a dedicated IP address. But they can't connect or ping their websites from their end, basically I think the domain name is not resolving.
From our end and the rest of users everything works fine.
Once I get a complain of this type I try whatever I can do
Check to see if their IP is not blacklisted Restart named service Restart apache service But most of the time this doesn't work at all.
Exactly as the problem comes it goes, nothing I did seems to have any effect on the solution. It goes and ocassionally reappears.
Would you suggest me what would I do to find where the problem is and try to solve it.
I have been tasked with setting up IIS6 to run 10 different sites. We will be using the Host Header Names approach as I do not have 10 IP addresses. I want to allow clients to upload/download to their site via FTP. My IIS6 books have examples of how to setup separate FTP sites for individual IP addresses, how do I accomplish this when using Host Headers? I just need to be pointed in the right direction.
I would like to find a host that could handle 2 or 3 domains but without bells and whistles... everything with shared hosting is $25 a month and up! All 3 sites are under 1mb (not likely to go over 3 mb), written in good old HTML; I would prefer a File Manager but FTP is OK too. Must be US based and have a reasonable uptime guarantee.
We are hosting a webservice application behind a Loadbalancer and the webservice is accessed via a ReverseProxy.However when we try to access the WSDL we see the endpoint loadbalancer IP coming in the response instead of the reverse proxy url.
I am currently running Apache on Ubuntu 14.04. I tried adding an alias, but it doesn't do exactly what I need. I have a single site and I need to point two domain names to it. The thing is, if someone types in www.site1.com I want it to show the url as www.site1.com and if someone types in www.site2.com I want it to continue to show www.site2.com in the URL. Right now if they type in www.site1.com it shows the first site name as the URL, but if they type in www.site2.com it changes the URL to www.site1.com. Below is what I have as my virtual host in my conf file currently.
We have a full rack of servers at an XO datacenter. Most of these servers consistently need to go out to the internet to retrieve various URLs. Essentially, the servers are spidering, like Google does.
Lately we have noticed that the DNS servers that XO provided, which are in the /etc/resolv.conf files for each server, have been randomly failing.
Is there any reason that I can't set the servers to go to the root and use that for DNS? I need to bypass the XO DNS servers some how.
One of the options that I am considering is setting up a dedicated server that can provide recursive DNS to my other servers and have that server ask the root DNS system for records when it is not in the cache.
The other option that I am considering is finding a company that I can buy the ability to do recursive dns on. The onyl one that I have found so far is DynDNS though, and I have been looking for about two hours.
If anyone can make any suggestions to how I can get around the XO issue I am having or provide suggestions to a provider of recursive DNS servers (not managed, unless recursive comes with it),
i have a weird problem with dns bind. i just setup a zone file and it seems [url]works but [url]doesnt work. i have also created a cname for www but still not working.
here is my zone file
$ttl 38400 domain.com. IN SOA ns1.domain.com. webmaster.domain.com. ( 1211542287 10800 3600 604800 38400 ) domain.com. IN A 188.8.131.52 ns1.domain.com. IN A 184.108.40.206 ns2.domain.com.

I have a local server named as 'EPBX' which monitors the working of the telephone system and makes their log entries. Recently its HDD partition got crashed due to which it was formatted and had re-installed Windows server 2003 after which I am facing some problems as given below:
- The IP address assigned to this server is 192.168.100.2. I am able to ping the IP but unable to take the console of the software from some other local PC.
- Also when I try to trace the IP using the tracert command first it resolves to the ISP's router and then to the server. But the router is not at all asigned a local IP. I have assigned a global IP to it. (Screen shot of the same has been attached)
- It would be very difficult for me to change the IP address
Just got set up with a new VPS and while looking to see if my IPs were blacklisted, I came across a RDNS warning. I've been on some form of shared hosting since I've been on the Internet, so much of the VPS stuff is new to me (though it is managed). Everything I've read says that RDNS is important for sending mail so the receiving end can verify where mail is coming from, but I thought I would ask here regarding my specific issue.
I've got four IPs on my account. The first ip, x.x.x.67, is the host IP(ie host.example.com). Most of my domains are using that IP at the moment since I just got set up, but I do have another domain on the last IP in my account, x.x.x.70. When I first did a RDNS check on my main IP I got a domain that I've never seen before, and all other IPs on my account don't resolve at all.
I sent a ticket off to the host, and they set the RDNS record correctly for the main IP on my account, but the other three still fail to resolve. When I asked the host about it in a ticket, the response that I got was
Normally, we set RDNS for the main IP address to hostname of the server.
The RDNS for your server has been setup properly. Please get back to us if you need any further assistance.
So basically I'm clueless. Does it matter that the other three IPs I have available don't resolve at all? The domain on the x.x.x.70 IP, which doesn't resolve, is an e-commerce site that depends almost exclusively on e-mail for its business. Doesn't the lack of RDNS resolution mean that I'll be out of luck sending mail to AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc etc on that account? Even though I don't have sites on the middle two IP addresses yet, I fully plan to put sites there within the next couple of months... could they have the same problem?
It's frustrating since I obviously have no control over RDNS records, and the host's staff is being a little obtuse about it.
I'm hosting a few sites with LiquidWeb (freeteams.net and laxteams.net are the big ones), who's been a terrific host, but I occasionally have some issues trying to access my sites. It occurs only occasionally (maybe 10-20 people have let me know in the past year), but with users in different locations and on different ISPs. It seems to also only occur for a couple of hours.
When they try to type in a specific domain, it won't show up in their browser (browser-independent, I've tried it in Chrome, IE, and Firefox.) However, when they try the IP address directly, the site works. I have about 4 sites on one server, all with their own IP address, and the issue doesn't affect all the domains at the same time.
LiquidWeb says it's an ISP issue (they've checked all the settings on the server, and everything looks ok.) I tend to agree with them, because when I or my users switch from using their ISP's DNS server to OpenDNS' server, it works. However, it's happened at a number of different ISPs around the U.S., including universities, which makes me think there's something I can do to solve the problem. Also, I don't want users to have to change their computer settings.
Also, while I can't access the domain in the browser, I am able to ping the domain, and it will respond.

I've got a VPS account & when I connect to sites on the VPS, more often than not the browser times out. I click again & the site comes through.
I use Firefox & have tried in other browsers with similar results.
The VPS has 384mb dedicated RAM, with 512mb burstable - not much I know but...
I was wondering about possible reasons - could it be simply not enough RAM, could it be a bottleneck with the hosting company, could it be a problem in the setting up of the nameservers? What would seem more likely?
It's a shame as the tech support have been superb but it's too risky to use for reselling.
i got too many logs on Lame-server resolving i my log.
every second about 10-20.
Jul 23 11:31:33 ns1 named: lame server resolving '92-49-205-1.dynamic.peoplenet.ua.mydnsdomain.net' (in 'mydnsdomain.net'?): my.ip.add.ress#53 Jul 23 11:31:33 ns1 named: lame server resolving 'www.mydomain.com.mydnsdomain.net' (in 'mydnsdomain.net'?): my.ip.add.ress#53
so i turned of the logging and start search the web on possible reasons. However the only once i found where mostly "in case of the domain is not hosted on the server". But in my case the domains in questions are on my server and show in the log as lame server resolv.
They say it has to do with server is not authoritive for that domain.
So how i am gonna fix this?
With digs, and nslookups, i got not errors at all.
But if i try to change a DNS i got a message back from a provider saying that the domains is broken.
I am having some wacky stuff going on with my server. I run a Godaddy v-ded and according to them, the server is fine.
What i'm experiencing is, some of my domains are not resolving, some are. For the ones that are working that run via a database, every few hours, I need to restart mysql(or the server) to get them running again.

Since my local ISP hasn't updated yet, I'm still seeing the sites on the old server. I used a proxy (hidemyass.com) which seems to update all the time, and it said that it couldn't connect to the website (I usually use it to test a site's functionality before I can connect to the site)
What can I do to test where it's going wrong? The domains have been pointed at ns1.theplanet.com and ns2.theplanet.com already, and theplanet has created those nameserver entries for us already. I just don't want the domains to start resolving, only to find that something is broken....
For some reason, the first virtual host i have listed in apache2.conf gets all the traffic of all the other virtual hosts listed below it.
Example: Domain xyz.com is listed as the first virtual host. the second, third, and fourth are 123.com, 987.com, and mno.com, respectively (fictitious domains). However, it seems that everything below xyz.com goes straight to xyz.com.
If i switch the first entry, xyz.com with any of the others, such as mno.com, so that mno.com is the first virtual host entry, everything then forwards to that domain.
