What is the default for DNS Providers if the DNSSEC Records are provided but not working?

Hi all, there is a fellow reddit user that has unfortunately entered some wrong DS Record infos. According to “The zone **** has published DS records, but none of them work.”

Somehow, only googles DNS seem to reject to add this domain to its DNS Server.

<<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @ .*.tld ANY ; (1 server found) ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 50558 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0


;; Query time: 208 sec ;; SERVER: ;; WHEN: Thu Oct 29 18:28:15 2015 ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 38

Other public DNS Server seem to work!

Is Googles denial of adding the domain the proper way? Are there rules for this kind?

P.S. I did not publish the domain intentionally because i’m not in direct contact with the affected reddit user, but i’m curious that if only google is doing it “wrong” or “right”…

Can I setup a DNS server in my home to avoid paying for location blocker like

I have some extra PCs and other network equipment laying around, and I’m fairly technically savvy. It’s occurred to me that maybe I could save $5 a month on by setting up my own DNS server. I’m not sure how it blocks/manipulates the location however.

Does anyone have any advice here?

Thanks in advance!

Question: – to be excluded from forward lookup zone of * to allow for public DNS records.

Sorry its mean to say allow for public DNS lookup 🙁

So i have a request from a customer (win 2008 dns server – replicating to 3 other dcs).

They have 2 dev environments:

There are forward lookup zones internally for these – there is an A record for * and * pointing internally.

They want (and it’ll be the same for the other domain) to be resolved externally within their environment rather than internally (and given there is a catchall on the wildcard it’s making it a bit hard) – is there a way to set this up at all?

Why does A name resolve to IPs that have a PTR pointing to my ISP.

I have just done a tracert, this returns the following.

Tracing route to [] over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 3 ms 1 ms 2 ms dsldevice.lan [] 2 13 ms 13 ms 13 ms [] 3 12 ms 13 ms 13 ms [] 4 13 ms 13 ms 13 ms [] 

Then running an nslookup or dig on the PTR of and I get the following.

Non-authoritative answer: name = nameserver = nameserver = is a domain registered to my ISP (Plus net).

Also checking the A name records of, this again was returning IPs that appear to be handled by my ISP and not

set type=a Server: dsldevice.lan Address:

Non-authoritative answer: Name: Addresses:

Any ideas why this is? Google Servers at my ISP?
