    this is my zone files. range of ip on server is from number.number.135.100 to number.number .135.194 .

    all the A records made with the internal ip's seem to work properly.
    but if i use a external ip. like the mc A record. or the furien A record .
    the A record sometimes works. sometimes it does not.

    for example the dr A record worked yesterday. but today. if i do a ping to the DNS . i get :

    ping dr.placeholder.ro
    Ping request could not find host dr.placeholder.ro. Please check the name and try again.

    P.S. placeholder is not may actual DNS :P . if its needed . i will provide it.
    Anyone sees something in the zone files that may determine the A zone to work from time to time ?

    Hello :)

    Have you checked to make sure the domain name is using valid name servers? You can use a website such as IntoDNS or the "dig" command to verify your name servers are configured properly.

    Thank you.

    hmmm....the primary nameserver is correct. but i had some extra nameservers that i don't use anymore. I removed them. will test in 48 hours if the A record work properly now.

    Did not fix it. Strange problem. If i use the same external ip on my other domains. It works just fine. For now i moved my nameservers for the domain in question to couldflare. And use them for the A records. Will do more test next year :D

    Feel free to let us know if the issue continues after additional testing.

    Thank you.
