I believe that jymis.com has the authoritative domain records. That
what dig seems to indicate:
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
pupman.com. 16h25m42s IN NS ns1.jymis.com.
pupman.com. 16h25m42s IN NS ns0.jymis.com.
AAARGHHH!!! Ok, I think this is the problem:
> server G.GTLD-SERVERS.NET
Default Server: G.GTLD-SERVERS.NET
(The 199.45... address is old and out of date) It should be 220.127.116.11.
Ok, how did you resolve the problem?
Thanks for the advice.
