I guess it's a DNS thing, wrong, since a restart

My server did shut down a few days ago, and I haven’t been able to find out why yet. Everything seems up and running, however, there’s this one weird thing I noticed when a perl script that gets info from another site on another server was showing 404.

when i type ping www.peng.es on the server I get:

ping www.peng.es
PING www.peng.es.nl ( 56(84) bytes of data.

What could cause this?


Check out the “search domains” configured on your system. I think they should be noted in /etc/resolv.conf.

When entering a name query without a trailing “.”, the search domains are automatically appended and tried as well.
