Not sure what you mean.

I was referring to your comment regarding CNAME causing an  additional query
for each look-up:

"I wouldn't recommend using CNAME for www due to extra DNS lookups[1]."

This is the only place where I look. As far as I'm concerned, if a
reload was unsuccessful, then you'll get something in there. Otherwise
nothing gets logged.

Not sure about that either. I guess you shouldn't use it then. Anyway,
at least your domain is responding now:

$ host -t a daemonbox.net chadwick.daemonbox.net
Using domain server:
Name: chadwick.daemonbox.net

daemonbox.net has address

$ host -t a www.daemonbox.net chadwick.daemonbox.net
Using domain server:
Name: chadwick.daemonbox.net

www.daemonbox.net has address

Wow, I'm surprised you were able to get that as I've also been making
firewall adjustments all night. :)


www.dnsreport.com is a great tool for all your DNS needs.

Absolutely. I'd be lost at work without it (or dnsstuff.com). :) Thanks
again for all your help!
