Weird redirection on my domain

11 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi all,

I recently purchased a french domain (.re) and found out my host doesn't pass the DNS test so I had to jump through hoops and use a (freedns.afraid.org) DNS host to point to my host's nameservers.

However, ive noticed twice that my URL points to https://ssl0.ovh.net/fr/. I'm not sure what's causing this; whether it is my host, the dns, or the sketchy place where I registered my domain (domain.re)..

Is anyone familiar with the previous site, and why this may be happening?

For the record, I don't have any CSS or Javascript on my homepage. I have a stripped down almost-free styling theme on a sub-directory.

It is worth mentioning that my homepage redirects to a sub-directory different from the one where my Wordpress installation is.

Any help would be really appreciated.

You don't give much info to help but I will try...

You need to make sure that the IP you are pointing Freedns.afraid.org to is right. It might be mapped to a different one by a typo. Also, make sure that your DNS glue is correct (go to leafdns.com) to check that and work on any errors they give there.

It doesn't have much to do with Javascript at this time - it is due to the DNS not pointing right if I am thinking that is what is going on based on what you said. Now, if the IP is correct, then I would look and make sure that some time has passed to make sure the DNS pointing syncs with the rest of the world. :) (Up to 72 hours).

It is weird that your host doesn't pass the DNS test. They didn't set up their server right. It is easy to do for those who host. If you are locked in - maybe change to cloudflare.com which gives Free DNS service as well without having to jump through hoops. :) You point your Domain's name servers to the ones they give you, tell Cloudflare what Ip to send traffic to and you are done.

Thanks for your response. I use a major host called JustHost, this is their reasoning for it:

https://my.justhost.com/cgi/help/536

The DNS is correctly pointed; the three nameservers of my host are all correct. It is also correctly forwarded at freedns.afraid.org.

Leafedns.org brings back 0 errors.

It's extremely strange :/

The domain in question is steven.re if that helps.

It Resolves on my end fine. I get:

(I blocked out the one word to help keep Mods happy if it isn't allowed in pics. )

The only place this isn't resolving correctly perhaps is in Rhode Island:

I would double (Maybe triple) check to make sure your DNS records are good on your local system. Try loading your site on a different computer, phone etc, loads fine? Then it is probably your computer's cache or LOCAL DNS If none load fine, try using a proxy service like https://www.megaproxy.com/freesurf/ to test as well.

Works here as well. I would verify your dns cache, be it local or what dns are you pointing at - maybe your isp.

What was the TTL on the old record? If it was large it could still be cached.. I would assume not many people looking this up - so other people around the world would not have it cached with their dns to the old IP.

It is erratic in that it happens sometimes and sometimes it doesn't.

I've started using a different DNS and haven't experienced it since. Hopefully I don't have anymore issues.

Thanks a lot for your inputs :-)
