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: sanity-surpassed.eu (registered with 123-reg, configured to point to my custom nameservers)
VPS FQDN: artanis.nitrous-networks.co.uk
ns1.artanis.nitrous-networks.co.uk and ns2.artanis.nitrous-networks.co.uk 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 voice.sanity-surpassed.eu 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:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
# Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
126.96.36.199 artanis.nitrous-networks.co.uk 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.
