I have numerous org domains. They no longer work ie you can't browse to them any more.

I have numerous 'com' domains that work and all domains (org and com)share the same name servers:

ns1.example.com, ns2.example.com

and all domains are hosted on the same server.

I'm trying to work out whether its a problem host's end or whether its my servers end.

I did a diagnostic on the domain and said this:

Nameserver Availability
Warning! Visitors may not be able to access your site. We could not find any nameservers for your domain. Details

DNS translates human-speak (domain names) into computer-speak (IP addresses). IP addresses are strings of numbers used by every computer connected to the Internet to identify its location and communicate with other computers and Web servers. For example, 128.0.1.2 is an IP address. So, DNS translates the domain name coolexample.com to an IP address: 208.109.80.196. Without DNS, you would have to know the IP address of every Web site you want to visit.

If your Nameservers are not setup correctly, Web browsers will not be able to find your Web site using your friendly domain name.

Suggested Improvements:
Manage NameserversManage Nameservers
The analysis was unable to communicate with some or all of your domain nameservers. Your site may be unreachable to visitors using your domain name (www.mydomain.com) or may take a long time to be found.

Wondering if anyone has some suggestions.

Log into godaddy and look at the nameserver entries there - they may have been corrupted somehow - what does a whois for those domains show?
If they look normal, try browsing to the affected sites from another location - you may have a problem on your PC.

Its all fine now. Turned out to be a server side problem. Was fixed by my host support.
