1- Check DNS report for the site in question and make sure all errors/warnings are cleared just to be on the safe side.

2- Make sure your /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf file are correctly set as per your provider's recommendation.

3- Do run a tracert from a couple of locations where this site is not loading to get a clearer picture.

The DNS report of the domain marketingassaultteam.com and the A record of the name servers looks fine. The entries of the name servers are correct on your server. BTW, what is the .ca domain name so we can check the DNS report of it?

And also as mentioned above, try changing the resolvers to OpenDNS resolvers in

/etc/resolv.conf
and take a trace route to your domain/name servers, whenever you cannot ping them.
