I’m fairly new at trying to manage a VPS. In this case I have this strange issue…
If I browse to http://www.netsumzero.com/test.html it doesn’t even reach the server (as far as I can tell). However if I go to http://22.214.171.124/test.html it works fine and I see the “hi” webpage.
My pings and nslookup for www.netsumzero.com all resolve to the same address as the hardcoded ip address I used above.
Any clue what to do now? I rebooted the server a couple times for giggles…
Here is an excerpt of the A record from the dreamhost control panel:
