How to fix status: NXDOMAIN

August 8, 2017 4.7k views
DNS Ubuntu 16.04

Hi, I have two droplets, each of them being on a subdomain of wlnkn.com

I followed the DO guide for adding domains. Everything worked fine for around a week or two, then suddenly I'm getting DNS errors:

Julians-Air:~ julianpatdu$ nslookup -type=cname wlnkn.com

Address:    192.168.43.1#53

** server can't find wlnkn.com: NXDOMAIN

Your domain registrar has disabled the domain. You need to contact them to ask why. (Or double check to see if you've missed any emails.)

You'll only need to change your droplet name to match the hostname which you want your IP to resolve to it
