Route 53 Registered/Verified but getting DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

0

The domain (populang.com) was registered with Route 53 last month (and has green tick verified since then too)

I have an elastic beanstalk application set up in the Alias record (http://populangeb-env.4m8cmmpayb.us-east-2.elasticbeanstalk.com) which I can access the EB application

However if I go via the domain name I get DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

I have checked the 4 NS records are the same in the Registered Zone and the Hosted Zone.

What can I do next?

Hi,

I get a blank page rather than an error message both when I browse to the domain name and when I browse to the DNS name for the Beanstalk application. This suggests that you changed the DNS configuration at some point and it's just a caching problem.

Thanks Scott,
I never actually touched the DNS info I am pretty sure.. so I am not sure about how on earth the DNS are different.
And by caching do you mean AWS caching? How can I flush that?

Hi,

I was thinking about either browser caching or DNS resolvers caching your name servers. Regardless of the cause, it's been resolved. I can see the populang.com website using both the domain name and the DNS name for your Beanstalk application.

Thanks Scott, but I am a little bit confused here because I cannot see the .com domain (the beanstalk url was always ok).. it still has the same error message

My machine is a linux mint and doesn't cache DNS
And I have tried to find the domain www.populang.com on other phones/tablets that had never searched for the URL and still the same error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.

Is it propagating or something if you can see it but we can't?

Hi,

www.populang.com doesn't work for me, either, but that's because there's no record for www.populang.com in your hosted zone.

I was thinking, in part, of DNS resolver caching, which is explained a bit in the topic "How Amazon Route 53 Routes Traffic for Your Domain" in the Route 53 Developer Guide:

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/welcome-dns-service.html#welcome-dns-service-how-route-53-routes-traffic
