DNS remains inactive

Netlify site name: flipstance.netlify.app
For this site I have added a custom domain: flipstance.com
I have added Netlify DNS and have changed the nameservers of my domain accordingly over 48 hrs ago, so Netlify can handle my DNS.
But I suspect that the DNS still is inactive and I don’t know how to activate it, after having been searching for many hours :man_shrugging: (therefor I can’t generate SSL certs either)

This is what my lookups look like:

$ ping flipstance.com
ping: cannot resolve flipstance.com: Unknown host
$ whois flipstance.com | grep -i "name server"
   Name Server: DNS1.P04.NSONE.NET
   Name Server: DNS2.P04.NSONE.NET
   Name Server: DNS3.P04.NSONE.NET
   Name Server: DNS4.P04.NSONE.NET
Name Server: dns1.p04.nsone.net
Name Server: dns2.p04.nsone.net
Name Server: dns3.p04.nsone.net
Name Server: dns4.p04.nsone.net
$ dig flipstance.com NS +trace | tail -n 6

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> flipstance.com NS +trace
;; global options: +cmd

| A | flipstance.com | (AS14618) | 20 sec |

And this is what my Netlify DNS looks like:

hi @planetcrypton

I checked the whois for flipstance.com and noticed that DNSSEC is enabled for the domain. Netlify DNS doesn’t support DNSSEC which means all DNS queries will fail unless DNSSEC is disabled or the DNS service for this domain is moved to a different provider that supports DNSSEC.

We have more information available in this troubleshooting guide!

$  whois flipstance.com | grep "DNSSEC"

Ok… thank you for pointing that out @rcmaples!
I think I’ll move the DNS back to where it was, and just point my A records to Netlify in stead.
If I do that, I just delete the DNS setup for my domain in Netlify and adjust the DNS once that has moved?

Yes @planetcrypton that it correct.
