The ActiveRain SHORT URL feature (actvra.in) is not working today…

 

Broken URL

 

The Short URL feature ... 

 

actvra.in

 

has a DNS or NS error?

 

Try this: 

 

http://actvra.in/4nLy

 

Result?

 

NOTICE 

No name servers or DNS records were found for actvra.in. 

The server at actvra.in can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.

 

How can you test it — remotely and independently from your network?

 

DNS Check - MxToolbox 

mxtoolbox.com/DNSCheck.aspx

 

Specifically: 

http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=dns%3aactvra.in&run=toolpage

 

• The DNS Check test will run a comprehensive DNS Report for your domain. ... Then we query each name server to make sure your DNS Servers all respond, ...

 

Result:

No ns Records exist

https://www.whatsmydns.net/

 

Specifically: 

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/actvra.in

 • Instantly check your domain names current IP address and DNS record information against multiple name servers located in different parts of the world.

 

And especially this:

https://who.is/dns/

DNS Lookup | Nameserver Lookup - Who.is information. Search for name server and DNS record information for domain names using our free tools.

 

Result:

Hopefully, this techincal issue can be resolved within a day ot two?

Still down. Already reported to Support. Will check back tomorrow and see if anything changes. Meanwhile, the Active Rain SHORT URL feature actvra.in seems to be down ... hard ... for now.  Some types of DNS errors like this can take hours (or days) to repair and fully recover from — DNS propagation delays and caching with your ISP may also be in the loop here.

All better now. It's fixed. DNS and NS are a-okay.

The short URL (actvra.in) works again. Test it here: http://actvra.in/4s6j

George,

I LOVE the short URL feature.  We use it to track where people are coming from to read our posts.  I'm happy that it wasn't down for long.
