snapzu DNS down?

For the last day I couldn't access snapzu. It appeared to me that the DNS was down. I tried https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/snapzu.com.html and it says it's down! https://notopening.com/site/snapzu.com says the same!

I looked at the whois and found the snapzu nameservers:

Domain Name: snapzu.com
Registry Domain ID: 1607672165DOMAINCOM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.godaddy.com
Updated Date: 2019-08-18T04:32:22Z


Name Server: NS1.NAZWA.PL
Name Server: NS2.NAZWA.PL
Name Server: NS3.NAZWA.PL

But a request to one of these nameservers gets rejected:

host snapzu.com NS1.NAZWA.PL
Using domain server:

Host snapzu.com not found: 5(REFUSED)

I normally use a VPN but I can't access snapzu.com through the VPN. When I kill my VPN I can access snapzu.com. Anyone got any idea what's happening?

Even now many of the thumbnails and icons are showing as broken links.

    I'm still getting no images since sX.storage.snapzu.com isn't returning DNS lookup queries any more. Even snapzu.com returns nothing frequently.

    What's going on guys?

  • kxh

    s*.storage.snapzu.com still appear to have no records in the DNS server. Can we have this fixed please? I see hardly any images in snapzu any more.

        On my main page ,I can see my avatar and other people's avatars,but that's the only place I see them. This looks to be quite a complicated problem.

          I can't reach it at all on my windows 8 system. It's really weird, my Samsung lotus notes 6 works perfectly fine.

    I have been looking at this issue and it's kind of weird.

    If I do this command which does a recursive lookup until it hits an authoritative server, using cloudflare I get this:

    $dig @ snapzu.com +short +trace
    NS c.root-servers.net. from server in 40 ms.


    NS b.root-servers.net. from server in 40 ms.
    RRSIG NS 8 0 518400 20190901050000 20190819040000 59944 . G5nPFALXVLH9FuiZ+gSDuJLiIoutGBdlHfn39brGDRLt/8Ugf8cNFvwW RPRfiSCj2j+MMwDvuHrDdQqHUY4k4hnNBYrRpkn18MJcBBrQF1tBZ3ME 2+Dgw0VhDkLr69Wz8w6tdDwfyIvE7YCDl2odpwAQMl+onYS+M5Y/JxdY 1jk1O4+xd1Ksn9Kf0kqE13WJDF7m/HC1rgOzkgQCw+3eAW7piOIjFJz5 QvLLEBjj40cFg0qbY7WybNg9uANpzOepv1itGR53MXAeYmdwA8bDt3q/ WUBGfQ1kKoK69bOLId/eRJ8B9rlzxZDY16YYjsnwVu6Z1inKPmm9nl9U mtE19Q== from server in 40 ms.
    A from server in 226 ms.

    If I do a simple dig I get no answer:

    $dig @ snapzu.com +short

    I am still getting snapzu dropping out occasionally and icons and images missing.

    snapzu authoritative servers seem to be these:

    snapzu.com. 3600 IN NS ns45.domaincontrol.com.
    snapzu.com. 3600 IN NS ns46.domaincontrol.com.

    whois shows this now, so the nameservers must have changed.

    I hope this will settle down as caches get updated.

  • kxh (edited 9 months ago)

    The snapzu.com soa:

    snapzu.com. 3600 IN SOA ns45.domaincontrol.com. dns.jomax.net. 2019081821 28800 7200 604800 600
    snapzu.com. 3600 IN NS ns46.domaincontrol.com.
    snapzu.com. 3600 IN NS ns45.domaincontrol.com.

    Those numbers are a bit odd:

    snapzu.com. IN SOA ns45.domaincontrol.com. dns.jomax.net. (
    2019081821 ; serial number
    28800 ; refresh [8 hours]
    7200; retry [2 hours]
    604800 ; expire[7 days]
    600 ) ; min TTL [10 minutes]

    Looks OK but some of those values seem quite long.

    I have problems getting to this site. i'm only getting to it using nonstandard ways. I thought it was my DNS, but I also have trouble getting it on my mobile devices (windows 10 /android). Also have the same blank thumbnail problem. User picture is also missing.

    At the moment the site cannot be seen in Firefox, Opera, Midori and several forks from these. The only reason I can post this, is thanks to the ToR-browser. Anyway, the missing of this great website is getting a little less, which is sad. I am not planning on using ToR a lot, so there I go again. I'll do a weekly check if the site is up with Firefox.

    OK, it's all back it seems. Thanks.
