    Help me find out who's at fault, I have no clue.

    I have two domains, slimcode.com and slimkeys.com. I have my web site hosted at winhost.com. Both domains, registered with Dotster, have their name servers set to WinHost's name servers, identical. In my WinHost control panel, I have slimkeys.com set as a domain pointer. Nevertheless, slimcode.com is resolved as 96.31.35.13, and slimkeys.com as 67.215.65.132. I have many other domains set up just like slimkeys.com, but only two of them map to 67.215.65.132.

    You'd think it's WinHost's name servers' fault, right? I used CacheCheck, nothing changes. Now WinHost tells me everything is fine on their end, both names resolve to the same, and the problem is with my domain registrar (dah?). It could have been a problem with OpenDNS, but I tried with my cell phone (not using OpenDNS, over 3G), and slimkeys.com fails too.

    Who's fault is this? What is happening?

    Thanks.

    I don't think anybody knows where slimkeys.com is.

    http://www.robtex.com/dns/slimkeys.com.html#records

    nslookup www.slimkeys.com 8.8.8.8
    Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
    Address: 8.8.8.8

    *** google-public-dns-a.google.com can't find www.slimkeys.com: Non-existent dom
    ain

    nslookup www.slimkeys.com 4.2.2.1
    Server: vnsc-pri.sys.gtei.net
    Address: 4.2.2.1

    *** vnsc-pri.sys.gtei.net can't find www.slimkeys.com: Non-existent domain

    The records are not correct, or have yet to propagate.

    "Nevertheless, slimcode.com is resolved as 96.31.35.13, and slimkeys.com as 67.215.65.132. "

    That would be the address of the Guide, to which you are redirected from hit-nxdomain.opendns.com, as OpenDNS does not return NXDOMAIN as part of operations and business model, from which you can opt out but would lose filtering in the free version of the service.

    Ask winhost.com why their nameservers are not propagating their information.
