[Unbound-users] Domains without A registry in nameservers

Hi Isaac,

It is not that .es does not provide glue. That is not a problem here.

The server 'exists' in the .com nameservers.
But not on the servers themselves, they give NXDOMAIN.
Unbound refuses to use this. That is why returns SERVFAIL.

(is .com hijacked?  No, this looks like a registration problem).

Best regards,
