Sorry this may be a basic question.

I have a domain name onebyinfinity.co.nz and I want it to point to an ip address 203.124.98.229. I have set the A record in my DNS Server to 203.124.98.229. However when I run ping onebyinfinity.co.nz, it says "host not found"

I tried NSLookup here - http://network-tools.com/nslook/Default.asp?domain=onebyinfinity.co.nz&type=255&server=ns2.dnspackage.com&class=1&port=53&timeout=5000&go.x=0&go.y=9 and I can see the IP address in the A record.

Is there anything I need to do to enable ping to work.

Thanks

    When did you made the DNS record changes? I can ping onebyinfinity.co.nz and it resolves to 203.124.98.229 - This is done from my workplace in Australia. So it already resolves for me.

  • Thanks Darius, the last change was made about 3 hours back. I have been trying various methods since the past 24 horus. Do you think my ISP or my local PC would have cached it?

  • Propagated all the way to the US now. Commented Dec 20, 2013 at 6:59
  • Assuming you are in Windows try ipconfig /flushdns and try again. Or use a different dns server.

Working fine on my end... maybe something on your end is messed up, or you tried pinging it before the DNS Records you added propagated?

C:\Users\user>nslookup onebyinfinity.co.nz
