DNS suddenly stopped working, while accessing by IP was fine.

Posted March 24, 2016 3.6k views

Hi everybody. I have a website+mobile app hosting here. My website is on main domain. Mobile app API and admin website on subdomain. For first I use simple nginx static data server, for second I use nginx+nodejs. Nginx error_log contains nothing during last few hours.
Few hours ago both my domains have fault down. I wasn’t been able to access any by domain, while accessing by IP worked find (I could have tested it only by website, because haven’t found any way to access subdomains using single IP).
After about few hours, everything started working fine. Without changing anything (just reload of nginx, but it was about hour before everything went back, so I don’t think this is an issue).
I know that it is probably DNS (GoDaddy) issue, but their main statistic says, that everything was OK.
Is it possible that it was DigitalOcean issue?
