No Ping For Dns

Recommended Posts

I have noticed twice in about a month that my DNS, www.johnlathrop.com, does not respond to a ping. The last time this was temporary. This morning I'm still waiting for a successful ping.


In each case I have been able to get to my site using the IP address.


What could be the cause of this?


UPDATE: About 5 minutes after this posting the PING started to respond.

The issue could clearly be with your DNS servers. However, we have no control over the DNS for your domain as your not pointing the DNS for your domain to our DNS servers.


As listed in the WHOIS for your domain.


Domain servers in listed order: Manage DNS





You stated when the DNS is offline you can still reach your TCH account via the IP of the TCH server. So this is clearly a issue with your DNS provider and not TCH.


Please contact your DNS provider.

Thanks to all for the prompt reply!


I got this message from NetworkSolutions:
