My domain keeps turning on and off after awhile but IP is working fine

I can’t get my domain name to work and stay stable. Sometimes it just automatically stops, other times it stops but only on www but the IP works fine all the time. How do i fix it?

I’ve noticed that your domain name has 2 A records, so this is why you are seeing the intermittent problem.

Basically what happens is, if your DNS resolver picks up the working IP your site loads, if it picks up the wrong IP the site would not load.

What you need to do is remove the second A record, and your site would start working as expected.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
