DNS problems?





infinisa
Hello All

Recently I have been unable to access my Frihost website, www.infinisa.frih.net, via www.infinisa.com, even though this has previously always worked without problems, and I haven't changed my DNS settings.

The mail redirection to Google Apps Mail continues to work fine.

Here are my DNS records (hosted at freedns.afraid.org):

Code:
;
; zone for infinisa.com
; built on 2007-11-17 17:04:00
;

$TTL    3600

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello All

I just want to add one thing to my previous post. Although I don't understand anything about the inner workings of DNS, when I specify a URL redirect on an A record, in this case:
Code:
; username:rothwell|tag:2123505|url:http://www.infinisa.frih.net
www   3600   IN   A   67.19.72.203

I would assume that the IP address ought to correspond to the URL specified, but in this case it doesn't seem to.

In fact, if I ping www.infinisa.frih.net I get the IP 64.120.224.218, and it pings OK
and when I do http://64.120.224.218 , I get a page saying Apache is working OK.

But if I ping the address in the A record, ping 67.19.72.203, I just get a time out, and when I do http://67.19.72.203 , I get a page not found error.

May be if I could replace the IP address in the A record the redirect would work, but I think the interface only allows me to key in a URL, not an IP address.

As I said, I don't understand the technical details, but the fact is that this A record redirect has worked for years without any problems, and recently stopped working without any change that I am aware of.

Help Please!

Hello All

All of a sudden, www.infinisa.com is now working (correctly redirecting to www.infinisa.frih.net).

I'm sure there must be loads of Frihosters who know al about DNS records.

Can anyone please explain what might have been going on (just in case this happens again)?

Thanks!
