I'd like to point my domain back to my webhost after having used it in a Github pages repository. I remember having to set A records to point said
example.github.io but now I'd like to point it back to my webhost.
What's the best way to do this? Should I just delete the A records and wait for things to resolve?
So far I tried doing this put initial checking seems to return a server error, and I don't know exactly where the domain is pointing now. A
dig command in terminal returns the nameserver of my webhost, but I think there's a misconfiguration.
Pingdom checker returned this message:
The name server failed to answer queries sent over TCP. This is probably due to the name server not correctly set up or due to misconfgured filtering in a firewall. It is a rather common misconception that DNS does not need TCP unless they provide zone transfers - perhaps the name server administrator is not aware that TCP usually is a requirement.
As a side note, I have set a couple of subdomains on GH pages also, but since they're subdomains their DNS settings shouldn't affect top-level, right?
