Reboot Results In Lost TKLAPP.com Domain

After rebooting a server, my tklapp.com domain was not longer available:

 

TKLAPP.com

 

The site you are looking for is currently not available.

Did your server change it's

Did your server change it's IP? It might be a DNS propogation issue...

I didn't explicitly change

I didn't explicitly change the IP. Perhaps the reboot resulted in an IP change. So maybe I just didn't wait long enough.

Reboot changes IP

Yes, it seems that every reboot changes the server IP. It takes up to several hours for propagation.

Is elastic IP the only solution?


Jeremy's picture

Yes Elastic IP is the only real solution AFAIK

For your own use, using a 'better' DNS provider will help (eg Goole's 8.8.8.8), but that isn't much good for other people trying to access your site.
