Static ip

hello, i just recently got a static ip…why does my static ip resolve to

shouldnt it resolve to my site name? “

As you “just” added the static IP, it might just be DNS propagation, which can take anywhere from a couple minutes to a couple days. You can use to follow your site’s propagation.

If you don’t see the site yet give it a bit of time, or try these in the meantime:

Site Temporarily Unavailable
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.

error id: “bad_httpd_conf”

so until the dns updates…ppl have to go to my ip?

For what it’s worth, when I visit it does not resolve to, which is why I think it’s a matter of DNS propagation. I do get the bad_http_conf error when I visit your IP though.

no actually…what happend with that was…i never added my unique ip… it was going to the actual website…

but now that i had figured out how to add my unique ip it goes to that ^^

this is my domain

this is the ip its supposed to assign to : (which works now)

and this is the dns i have for the ip currently

  • Dns resolving

Record ( zone) Type Value

Ah yes, I see what you mean:

Reverse DNS = Black magic.

Just kidding :slight_smile: It looks like the reverse DNS is off; this should correct itself in time. As of right now the domain is loading correctly and resolving to the appropriate unique IP address in your web panel (not static IP ;)).

it may or may not help, but can’t hurt either: go to manage domains in the panel, click the DNS link under the domain name and then click the GO button on the next page to force a DNS refresh.

That only updates forward DNS. Reverse DNS is a separate process.
