Domain Name won't resolve
Established site has gone missing

 6:18 am on Nov 3, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a site for which the DNS suddenly won't resolve. I have emails into the registrar and the host, but I'd like to do more than just wait.

What should I be doing to figure out what's going on?

BTW, the registrar dues are up in a few weeks. I got some weird email about a request to change to another registrar, but it said nothing would happen without my OK, and I didn't respond.

This is a major bummer.

try [dnsreport.com...]

Also, have you tried using the "ping" or "dig" commands?

Any of the above should show you your hosting IP address and/or the nameservers

RosWal, I have a DNS server. If you'll sticky me the URL within the next 30 minutes I take a look and let you know what I see.

Thanks cws3di - No joy for me. I'm trying to get in touch with the registrar (Nameking) - thanks proving difficult.

Mark - I stickied you.
