View Full Version : Google webmaster tools - DNS error

06-09-2007, 05:35 AM

I've got a personal project that is a real estate search site like trulia.com and i submitted it to google's index a couple months ago and also added to google webmaster tools. I get a domain unreachable dns error it sais it cant connect to my dns server. For dns i use freedns.afraid.org. i tried going to my url in firefox and it works great.

I have also submitted my sitemap to google webmaster tools and i get this error:

Network unreachable: DNS issue
We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

I checked my sitemap link and i can access it in my browser.

Does anyone know how to remedy these errors?

Try changing DNS hosts?

BTW, one thread per topic please. :)

deleted that bit. sorry thought i could kill 2 birds with one stone

I would do that but my other site is in google's index and in google webmaster tools and it is on the same dns host. But i will try that

Thanks for responding so fast:thumbsup:

I changed my dns host to zoneedit.com, resubmitted my site map but still same problem. i did a whois at whois.net and the new dns addresses are registered to the domain

Hmm, it must be something other than a DNS issue then. Is your sitemap in XML or text? If XML, is the code valid and saved to UTF-8 format?

It's in XML and is in UTF-8 i cant think of what would cause this problem. I've pmed my site map.
