Dreamhost and DNS hosting

Posted in Tue, 01 Aug 2006 08:56:00 GMT

If you are hosting at Dreamhost, you are better off letting Dreamhost host the DNS for your domain as well. This is because Dreamhost can change the IP of your server without notifying you. They will update their own DNS servers when this happens but this won't help if you if your DNS is being hosted elsewhere. Use their nameservers and you should be all set.

Sometimes when the DNS is pointing to the incorrect IP, you'll see the following error:

Site Temporarily Unavailable

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.

error id: "bad_httpd_conf"
