    Hi,

    I have my nameservers setup and all is working well 99% of the time. One of my sites linkpointer.co.uk is having an odd intermittent problem.

    It should resolve to 213.52.228.2 which it does most of the time. But every now and again it will resolve to its local IP address which is obviously causing problems.

    Everything seems to be setup fine. Any ideas on why this would occur?

    Thanks in advance
    Kind Regards,
    Mark

    Certainly looks like an A record problem in the zone file for that domain. The dig result shows an internal IP address with a very short TTL.
