    All of a sudden I can no longer access any of my websites. They do not DNS. If I go to ISPconfig using the IP address of the system I can get to the dashboard and everything seems to be ok. I have checked all they settings but can not get to any of my sites. Example UnityLodge3.org Any ideas as to why my DNS is not working?

    That unityLodge3.org domain name does not resolve from DNS name service.
    Code:
    $ host unityLodge3.org
    Host unityLodge3.org not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
    The name servers authoritative for that domain are not responding.
    Code:
    $ whois unityLodge3.org | grep "Name Server"
    Name Server: NS1.THE-COMPUTERGUY.BIZ
    Name Server: NS2.THE-COMPUTERGUY.BIZ
    [email protected] ~
    $ ping -c 3 ns1.the-computerguy.biz
    ping: ns1.the-computerguy.biz: Nimeä tai palvelua ei tunneta
    [email protected] ~
    $ ping -c 3 ns2.the-computerguy.biz
    ping: ns2.the-computerguy.biz: Nimeä tai palvelua ei tunneta

    Wait for that Computer Guy to fix the name servers, or set up your authoritative name servers somewhere else, or transfer your domain regitration to some other registrar.
    There is info on testing DNS in the DNS tutorial linked to in my signature.

    Yes ns1.the-computerguy.biz if my main site that everything goes from. It has been working for years but just stopped. I can use the IP and go to the control pannel and everything looks good but the DNS does not seem to be working. If I go to monitor it says everything is running ok.
