One of the problems that you might encounter when using a custom domain is inconsistent DNS server configuration, and if are already familiar with troubleshooting it then you know how complicated and troublesome it can be to conduct a diagnosis and detect inconsistencies.
Fortunately though, there’s a tool you can use that will save you from all this trouble. It’s called Dig Web Interface, which provides you with the ability to diagnose inconsistent DNS servers much more easily via GUI transaction, and it only takes less than a minute.
To use it, just do the following steps:
- Provide the “naked domain” and “www” aliases.
- Select “A” for “Type” (“A” / “CNAME” / “NS” lookups).
- Select “Authoritative” for “Nameservers”.
- Hit “Dig”.
And that’s it! Pretty much half of the work is already done for you. All that’s left for you to do is examine the report it provides, which is not that hard to parse. Each authority server for each URL is identified and Dug. You’ll quickly find any DNS inconsistency in the log as it will show the difference in DNS addresses. Pretty neat, huh? Hope you enjoy using this helpful tool!
