Online.net DNS server issue

#1

I am having Issue with resolving DNS records for some domains using Online net DNS cache servers
62.210.16.6 and 62.210.16.7

DNS timeout when looking up records for example
simpsoneng.com and burroughs.co.uk don’t return anything for A records, but bbc co uk for example does lookup normally.

Can anyone else using the online net default DNS servers please try this for me ?

Actually, it is working again today - must have been a glitch somewhere

Yep, no issue on our side :slight_smile:

$ host simpsoneng.com 62.210.16.6
Using domain server:
Name: 62.210.16.6
Address: 62.210.16.6#53
Aliases:

simpsoneng.com has address 81.31.77.27
simpsoneng.com mail is handled by 1 simpsoneng-com.mail.protection.outlook.com.

Thanks for testing

Issue seems to back again!

Online. Net dns servers time out looking up anything for burroughs.co.uk

Does it work for anyone else? Can anyone else using the online net default DNS servers please try this for me ?

Hi!

Again, it works on my side but this might be different if I tested it at the exact same time as you report it down.

> host burroughs.co.uk 62.210.16.6
Using domain server:
Name: 62.210.16.6
Address: 62.210.16.6#53
Aliases:

burroughs.co.uk has address 109.108.149.7
burroughs.co.uk mail is handled by 10 burroughs-co-uk.mail.protection.outlook.com.

Next time (if it ever happen again), could you give us more details on this issue?
Like the host command I ran and a mtr 62.210.16.6?
Also, I suggest you to check if the DNS servers hosting this domain are working well :slight_smile:
