Another query for the domain-savvy. :D
I registered Winterfilth.net
on the 6th, with Yahoo's Domain Service
. I bought it a little hosting thing at RockstaHost.com
. I set the nameservers to ns1.rocksta.us
, as it said to in the RockstaHost welcome email thing. I've registered two other domains with Yahoo! in the past, which are hosted on my reseller (not with Rocksta), and, after setting the nameservers, I was able to view the sites by their name within an hour. Not so with Winterfilth. I re-set the nameservers Monday evening, and now it's Wednesday afternoon, and, I still can't see it. (You can view what I want
to see at WF.net at http://rocksta.us/~winter/
. I can
log in to the account's cPanel through rocksta.us & an IP address, so I know the account is there.
Yes yes, I know DNS can take up to 72 hours to propagate, blah blah blah. Is it unsual that while the other two domains' DNS propagated within an hour (1 of them was a net, the other an org), this one is taking much longer? If, say, it still hasn't propagated for me by tomorrow evening, to whom do I inquire -- Yahoo, or Rocksta -- or do I inquire at all? How can I tell if something is amiss with the nameservers? Is it true that, if after 72 hours, it hasn't propagated for me, something is
I always get confused by this domain stuff.
