I’m having a problem I can’t figure out with Bind on a server recently installed with Debian 11.
I’ve checked and compared the different Bind configuration files with those of another working server, but I don’t see what’s wrong.
The symptoms are quite curious: a dig request on the server (for a domain that is hosted on it) works “sometimes yes and sometimes no”.
If some of you want to test, they can do it with the domain i1j.com.
The dig sometimes returns the correct IP, sometimes times out and sometimes returns no IP… (whereas there is indeed a zone in Bind on the server and, as far as I can see, it is loaded correctly). Retrying the dig sometimes changes the result.
@jotst2 Unless I’m mistaken, it’s not a firewall or a blacklist issue, otherwise the problem wouldn’t be intermittent.
@stefan1959i1j.com is a domain I host. It is short, looking odd,… but it is totaly legit. And yes, it is currently for sale, but that is actually not the point here
@Gomez_Adams Everything is looking fine on this server (except that odd Bind/DNS problem). Sorry if I misstated the problem, but I don’t think that what Apache shows on any of those 2 pages is related to any DNS issue. What matters to me here is to understand why DNS queries to ip132.ip-87-98-130.eu and ns3084544.ip-145-239-131.eu work so badly.
No problems, last check I did mxtoolbox shows no nameserver configured, but now it see them. ns378546.ip-91-121-64.eu
Why such a weird name why not just ns1.i1j.com
also one of your nameservers is timing out Network Tools: DNS,IP,Email
Uh i did mentioned first look at the nameserver is with the link mxtoolbox, other things could be cause but not in your case.
There you see while you have it at sale i think you need there to look, while such domainsales services there are mostly also some ns / dns services where then you use that from them.
So look where you put your domain in sales!
Or you didn’t set the nameserver(s) right at your registar!
One potential issue at a time: does the server itself respond properly? What are you doing exactly and what are the different results? Maybe add the server’s IP address so that others can do the dig themselves.
