Somewhere in the last few days my domain jixxy.com became unreachable, and I could use some help figuring it out.
I only use for DNS hosting here at DH and I set some MX records so I can use Google Apps on this domain. This worked for ages until since a few days ago I can not receive any email anymore (people get error mails back stating my domain can not be found) and even worse: ping & nslookup do not find it anymore.
tvinke@localhost ~ $ ping jixxy.com
ping: cannot resolve jixxy.com: Unknown host
tvinke@localhost ~ $ nslookup jixxy.com
** server can't find jixxy.com: NXDOMAIN
When I go to the Dreamhost admin panel and lookup the DNS settings, they seem ok to me:
Record (jixxy.com zone) Type Value
MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 10 ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 10 ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
mail CNAME ghs.googlehosted.com.
First I wanted to find out if Google mail delivery failed somehowm but if ping doesn’t even resolve it anymore, what can I do?
Any disturbance in Dreamhost DNS servers or other internet problems perhaps?
