Route 53 domain returns DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN but IP address works


Hi, My website used to work but all of a sudden it started throwing error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.

However, the static IP ( attached to the domain still works. Anyone knows what might be wrong?

The NXDOMAIN DNS response code indicates that domain being queried does not exist and could not be resolved to an IP address. The Name-server being reached may also be incorrect and not aware of any record by this name. If the domain cannot be resolved to an IP the client cannot connect. This is because the client cannot resolve the domain name to the IP. In testing from my end I believe that you have already resolved this issue as I was able to resolve the domain using DNS lookup tools and my browser. That being said, we do have troubleshooting steps for the NXDOMAIN response code provided at the following link:
