    Re: TS3 DNS must be down

    Here is the results from a DNS check
    http://dnscheck.pingdom.com/?domain=...4232281&view=1

    There is something wrong with the nameserver and SOA.

    • Name server ns4.microsoftinternetsafety.net (157.56.78.73) not authoritative for frogs.servegame.com.
    • Name server ns3.microsoftinternetsafety.net (157.56.78.93) not authoritative for frogs.servegame.com.

    157.56.78.73
    157.56.78.93

    ERROR: looks like you have lame nameservers. The following nameservers are lame:
    157.56.78.73
    157.56.78.93

    WARNING: Not all of your nameservers are in different subnets

    WARNING: Single point of failure

    Your SOA RETRY value is: 15. That is NOT OK

    ERROR: I could not get any A records for www.frogs.servegame.com!

    (I only do a cache request, if you recently added a WWW A record, it might not show up here.)

    ns3.microsoftinternetsafety.net

    Some of your nameservers provide recursive lookups. This is bad since it could be used to poison caches or other DNS attacks. The following nameservers indicated that they support recursive lookups:

    ns3.microsoftinternetsafety.net
    ns4.microsoftinternetsafety.net

    Some of your nameservers did not respond authoritatively for your domain. The following nameservers did not respond authoritatively:

    ns3.microsoftinternetsafety.net
    ns4.microsoftinternetsafety.net

    You have only 2 nameservers, which is the minimum allowed. There is a chance that they could both fail simultaneously. Although not necessary, you should consider increasing the number of nameservers to 3.

    Your nameservers are all on the same class C IP namespace. This is an indication (but not proof) that they may be co-located, which could be a risk should the internet connection to that location fail.

    Your SOA serial number is 1. This does not match the recommended format of YYYYMMDDnn [RIPE-203]. This is not necessarily a problem as long as your DNS admin knows what they are doing.

    Your SOA retry value is 15 secs. This is the time a slave nameserver will wait if an attempt to contact a primary nameserver failed before it tries again. This seems low. It may cause unnecessary load during a network outage between a slave and master DNS server.
    Just a suggestion but perhaps moving to OpenDNS may be more fortuitous?

    yes, see sub's post here:

    Fortunately my asus router offers free ddns from asus, you can use the following hostname to connect if frogs.servegame.com doesn't work for you. Both hostnames should work, but the asus hostname will work for sure. Hopefully ms and no-ip get things settled soon.

    I didn't even get an email from No-IP about any of this and I'm a paying customer.

    I apologize for the inconvenience and any heartache and sleepless nights this may have caused.
    No-IP has been inexpensive (or free) and reliable for years. And forgive me if I misunderstand OpenDNS's product, but what No-IP does is provide the domain name forwarding for a dynamic IP for people who want to connect from the outside. It is NOT a DNS server that you point everything to resolve domain names outside your network, which is what OpenDNS looks like.

    Re: TS3 DNS must be down

    Ah, you are correct in What OpenDNs does. I was under the understanding that it also provided the NO-IP services. According to Spiceworks, OpenDNS also provides NO-IP services.

    Although, so is Dynect DNS.
