    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:
    Code:
    #fe00::0                ip6-localnet
    #ff00::0                ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1         ip6-allnodes
    #ff02::2                ip6-allrouters
    
    
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    # Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
    193.35.58.203 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)
    Code:
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    
    Any help appreciated and for any other info required, let me know.

    Thanks

    Check /var/log/syslog for named / bind errors.
