DNS Settings keep breaking
I rent a VPS and i have custom nameservers setup on my machine (the domain name used for the nameservers is the machine's FQDN)

OS: ubuntu 12.04 x64
External domain name: (registered with 123-reg, configured to point to my custom nameservers)
VPS FQDN: and have both been propagated and configured to be used as such by my VPS host. RDNS is also working as intended.

DNS is unreliable and sometimes when i reboot the VPS, i get downtime for the WWW and any other A records i have setup (like for example for teamspeak3)

Records don't seem to be syncing properly or "staying active" and i'm struggling to resolve the issue.

Output of /etc/hosts:

#fe00::0                ip6-localnet
#ff00::0                ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1        ip6-allnodes
#ff02::2                ip6-allrouters localhost.localdomain localhost
# Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.  artanis
::1            localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

Output of /etc/resolv.conf: (This is the default file it resets to everytime i reboot)

Any help appreciated and for any other info required, let me know.
