Yes it is a Resolver issue, Using Google DNS for this fixes all, but its not good to stick with Google for resolvers as it causes issues with spam filters.

My Host wants to charge me for live migration which is just unbelieveable as they are the ones having issues with their resolvers.

C Panel tech did some test and sure enough, lots of intermitten issues. Put in Google DNS, loads everytime and fast.

You guys are terrific! The Host wants to charge me to live migrate which I think is a joke as its their resolvers causing issues.

What is the best way to set up resolvers not using host Ips? I know its easy to change, but I also know it could cause issues with Spam filters. Is there anyway around this and whats the worst that can happen from using these Public DNS like Google 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4

Hey good morning!

With the Google DNS, its super fast. Weird though yesterday the resolvers went back to my Host resolvers and I was getting complaints from client site would nto load. I eventually got into WHM, changed them back and its workign great again. Just worried about spam filters.

What options do I have if the Host resolvers cause extreme slowness as I cant continue to use Google for this. The really weird thing is that other servers are runnign fine with same resolvers. When I out resolvers back to Host IP's, WHM literally takes like 75-90 seconds to load. If with Google, 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 instant.

Any suggestions as moving host is a LOT of work.

Hello there! Currently facing a similar issue.

Being with OVH, the first line in resolv.conf reports their DNS:

213.186.33.99

I would like to know if you added Google DNS as second and third line, or if you completely got rid of your ISP's DNS and only left Google ones. Thank you!

I had a similar issue anything DNS related was REALLY really slow.

Turned out I had an entry in my DNS cluster that was removed from service about a week ago and not removed from the Cluster so the cluster was timing out for the missing node before any DNS related items could load.

After removing the deprecated server in the cluster, from all peers, it now works as expected.
