My subdomain works fine, but my domain is showing DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN
I was able to set up a linode server and point a domain from where I got it to the server. I created the domain zone on linode and It was working at first for a few hours, then it suddenly stopped and started showing DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN on chrome.
I added an A record for the subdomain and it works fine. But my domain still shows DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.
The domain is http://www.cco.ng/ and the subdomain is http://admin.cco.ng/
I ran this command on the domain
dig +trace cco.ng | grep cco.ng
and it shows this
cco.ng. 3600 IN NS ns3.linode.com.
cco.ng. 3600 IN NS ns1.linode.com.
cco.ng. 3600 IN NS ns4.linode.com.
cco.ng. 3600 IN NS ns2.linode.com.
cco.ng. 14400 IN SOA ns1.linode.com. bashirhamza05.gmail.com. 2020051507 14400 14400 1209600 14400
Please what am I doing wrong?
It looks like you may not have an A record for your base domain. I didn't receive a response when running
dig +short cco.ng, while I do receive a response for an A record on your subdomain:
dig +short admin.cco.ng 126.96.36.199
Adding an A record pointing to your Linode for
cco.ng with a blank hostname, along with a hostname of
www if desired, should clear up the DNS error you're seeing.
This worked for me. I created A record for both and it shows now. Thank you for your help
