comment Redirecting to the file with the correct extension in nginx
Try flagging it for moderator attention and request it be moved. If it doesn't get moved, then just repost the question over ther.

comment Redirecting to the file with the correct extension in nginx
I am so bad with regex it's not even funny, but I'm pretty sure you can accomplish this without if. Try either the Server Fault SE site or the nginx mailing list, which is very active and questions like this get answered there all the time.

comment How to make my websites content available as Tor .onion and clearnet .com
Nginx won't care if the site is served in the clear or over the TOR network. You can set up server blocks ('virtual servers') for your different domains, which I suspect is necessary, though perhaps not. Either way, you can have both domains served from the same directory to reduce content duplication, it's just a matter of figuring out how to serve a TOR website at all. I suspect you may get better answers in the Server Fault SE site (I flagged the question for a moderator to consider migration).

What ISP is providing you with the VPS? Who is the domain's registrar?

comment Does a 3rd party spamming with links to a website get that website blacklisted?
SPF and DKIM can be set up such that everyone knows where mail from your domain is supposed to originate. Beyond that, the filters don't usually care about the contents of the email, just the servers that are sending the email.

comment How does DNS detect changes in nameserver IP address?
@neodymium To answer your question, the registrar is not resolving any name servers. That is being done by the name servers used by the owner the domain.

comment How does DNS detect changes in nameserver IP address?
Well, we can't really account for servers that don't follow the standard, as this would make answering questions impossible since someone not following a standard may be doing just anything. I would be interested in seeing some evidence of this, as I've never experienced it.

Well, you could counter using facts instead of ordering me to go away, because I won't. I make posts on facts, and I'm not concerned about imaginary point counts. I voted down because I saw many errors and considered the answers poor answers to the question. Isn't that the purpose of down-voting?

The whois record is used to find the location of the DNS server for a domain. It's completely relevant to the OP.

@dan Name server records "indicating the IP addresses" is not part of the record, it's part of the job of the name server, which is why that quote is in the DNS hosting part of the article.

@dan every registrar I've ever used (8) only asks for the URL of the domain, and that is all that is in the whois record, which is what the registrar maintains.

The registrar does not track IP addresses of servers. The primary record stored by the registrar only includes the URL of the DNS servers for the domain. Nameservers do not actually 'update'. They just use either cached information, which is held only as long as the TTL defines it to be held, or they query the DNS server for the address.

It does not matter what the domain type is for DNS caching. Only the TTL value in the DNS record of the domain determines how long before the record expires. The service for dynamic IP address is called Dynamic DNS (DDNS). DYN is just a company that provides DDNS services.
